IBM WatsonX in Korea Quantum Computing
IBM said today that it has partnered with Korea Quantum Computing (KQC) to provide quantum computing services and the company’s most cutting-edge AI infrastructure and software. The ecosystem of KQC customers will get access to IBM’s complete stack AI solution, which includes Watsonx, an AI and data platform enabling organisations to train, fine-tune, and implement cutting-edge AI models and applications.
Additionally, Korea Quantum Computing (KQC) and IBM are extending their cooperation in quantum computing. Korea Quantum Computing (KQC) will continue to provide cloud-based connectivity to IBM’s worldwide fleet of utility-scale quantum equipment, having been an IBM Quantum Innovation Center since 2022. Furthermore, by 2028, IBM and KQC want to have an IBM Quantum System Two installed on-site at Korea Quantum Computing (KQC) in Busan, South Korea.
“KQC and IBM are working together to provide flexible computing infrastructure in Korea. In addition to being able to address the increasing need for high speed computing, their powerful hardware computing resources and core software in quantum and AI also have the ability to stimulate ecosystem growth and industrial usage. Together with their industry-specific partners, they are tirelessly striving to improve services and infrastructure via this partnership, according to Korea Quantum Computing (KQC) Chairman Ji Hoon Kweon.
“IBM are thrilled to collaborate with Korea Quantum Computing (KQC) to use quantum and artificial intelligence to spur innovation in all Korean businesses. Through this engagement, Korea Quantum Computing (KQC) customers will be able to use IBM Watsonx and advanced AI infrastructure to train, optimize, and implement advanced AI models. Furthermore, KQC members will be able to harness the power of AI and quantum to create new applications that tackle the most difficult issues facing their industries by having access to IBM quantum systems via the cloud today and a next-generation quantum system in the years to come “said Darío Gil, IBM Senior Vice President and Director of Research.
As part of this partnership, infrastructure will be invested in to facilitate the creation and use of generative artificial intelligence. Advanced GPUs and IBM’s Artificial Intelligence Unit (AIU), which is run on Red Hat OpenShift to provide a cloud-native environment, are planned components of the AI-optimized infrastructure. The GPU system and AIU together are being designed to provide members with cutting edge technology to drive AI research and economic prospects.
This partnership will also provide KQC’s customers access to IBM’s Watsonx platform to support generative AI and the next wave of computing technologies, as well as Red Hat OpenShift AI for administration and runtime requirements, in order to offer a complete stack solution. For its processes and solutions, Watsonx software gives Korea Quantum Computing (KQC) members access to generative AI technologies for businesses.
KQC is working with other Korean companies in addition to IBM to contribute to the nation’s ecosystem for quantum computing.
“KQC has been aggressively forming partnerships for quantum research with top local firms in the bio-healthcare, pharmaceutical, and finance sectors. Dankook University Hospital became a co-researcher in quantum healthcare last year. Additionally, Hanlim Pharmaceutical Co. has begun working with us on collaborative research for novel medication development as a member of their IBM Quantum Innovation Center. Additionally, Dr. Joon Young Kim, CEO of Korea Quantum Computing, said that quantum algorithms are being developed by the Korean financial software start-up DNEURO for option pricing and portfolio optimization.
IBM is a top supplier of consulting services, AI, and hybrid cloud solutions globally. They support customers in over 175 countries to take advantage of data insights, optimize company operations, save expenses, and get a competitive advantage in their sectors. Red Hat OpenShift and IBM’s hybrid cloud platform are used by over 4,000 government and business organizations in key infrastructure domains including financial services, telecommunications, and healthcare to facilitate digital transformations that are fast, secure, and efficient. Open and flexible alternatives are provided to their customers via IBM’s ground-breaking advances in AI, quantum computing, industry-specific cloud solutions, and consultancy. IBM’s longstanding dedication to openness, accountability, inclusion, trust, and service supports all of this.
What is IBM quantum computing?
On a quantum computer, a calculation is executed by first creating a superposition of all possible computational states. An method is used by the user to create a quantum circuit that selectively applies interference to the superposition’s constituent parts.
What is quantum computing used for?
Additionally, it is anticipated that quantum computers would put existing cryptography techniques to the test and open up new avenues for totally secret communication. We will be able to simulate, study, and work with other quantum systems with the aid of quantum computers.
Is quantum computing part of AI?
Conversely, quantum computing is often hailed as the next great breakthrough in artificial intelligence. Numerous possibilities may be processed by quantum computers at once. This may accelerate AI algorithms and improve their ability to handle more datasets, producing AI models with greater strength.
