SEOUL, South Korea, Jan. 10, 2022 / PRNewswire / – IBM (NYSE: IBM) today announced that LG Electronics has joined the IBM Quantum network to advance industrial applications of quantum computing.

By joining the IBM Quantum network, IBM will provide LG Electronics with access to IBM’s quantum computing systems, as well as IBM’s quantum expertise and Qiskit, the open source quantum information software development kit of IBM. ‘IBM.

LG Electronics aims to explore applications of quantum computing in industry to support big data, artificial intelligence, connected cars, digital transformation, IoT and robotics applications, all of which require processing. a large amount of data.

With IBM Quantum, LG can take advantage of quantum computing hardware and software advances and applications as they emerge, in line with IBM’s quantum roadmap. By leveraging IBM Quantum technology, LG will provide workforce training to its employees, allowing LG to study how potential breakthroughs can be applied to its industry.

“Based on our open innovation strategy, we plan to use IBM Quantum to develop our skills in quantum computing,” said Byoung-Hoon Kim, CTO and executive vice president of LG Electronics. “We aim to provide customers with unprecedented value by leveraging quantum computing technology in future businesses. “

“We are pleased to welcome LG Electronics to a growing quantum computing ecosystem in Korea at an exciting time for the region,” said Jay Gambetta, IBM Fellow and VP, Quantum Computing at IBM. “The relationship between IBM and LG Electronics will allow LG to explore new types of issues associated with emerging technologies and help build quantum capabilities in Korea.”

Quantum computing is an exciting development in computing. While classical computers calculate in bits that represent 0 and 1, quantum computers use qubits that exploit quantum mechanical phenomena such as interference and computational entanglement to solve problems that are fundamentally unsolvable for classical computers. As a result, quantum computing is well suited to help explore new problem-solving approaches like those of LG Electronics’ open innovation strategy, including big data, artificial intelligence, connected cars, digital transformation. , IoT and robotic applications.

At the IBM Quantum Summit in November 2021, IBM recently unveiled its new “Eagle” quantum computing processor with 127 qubits, a major step forward in IBM’s roadmap to achieving Quantum Advantage.

There are over 170 customers, including LG Electronics, Fortune 500 companies, start-ups, academia, and research labs working with IBM Quantum technology to advance quantum computing and explore practical applications. . IBM Quantum’s team and customers research and explore how quantum computing will help a variety of industries and disciplines, including finance, energy, chemistry, materials science, optimization and machine learning, among others.
