Title: IBM Quantum Experience: Prospects for universal quantum computing in the marketplace
Speaker: Yehuda Naveh - SPECIAL GUEST LECTURE http://researcher.ibm.com/researcher/view.php?person=il-NAVEH
Affiliation: IBM Haifa Reserch Lab
Host: Tal Mor


IBM recently released IBM Quantum Experience, a freely 
accessible programming interface to its 5-bit universal quantum 
computer, accompanied by a 16-bit beta version, both set on the IBM 
Cloud. I will describe the science and technology behind this 
milestone event. I will then present IBM's further vision for quantum 
computing in the marketplace, in terms of hardware, software stack, 
potential applications, and algorithms.

Short Bio:

Yehuda Naveh got his B.Sc. in physics and math, M.Sc. in experimental 
condensed matter physics, and Ph.D. in theoretical condensed matter 
physics, all from Hebrew University of Jerusalem. After four years at 
Stony Brook University, working on electronic properties of semiconductors
and superconductors, he joined IBM Research - Haifa, where he has been
working on a spectrum of applications, including leading the quantum 
computation related activity at IBM Haifa.
