LG Electronics joins IBM Quantum Network

LG Electronics has joined IBM Quantum Network to advance industry applications of quantum computing.

Being part of the network gives LG Electronics access to IBM’s quantum computing systems, quantum expertise and the Qiskit open-source quantum information software development kit. This lets it leverage quantum computing hardware and software advances and applications as they emerge, in accordance with IBM’s quantum roadmap.

LG can then provide its staff with training to investigate how potential breakthroughs can be applied to support big data, artificial intelligence, connected cars, digital transformation, IoT, and robotics applications.

“Based on our open innovation strategy, we plan to use IBM Quantum to develop our competency in quantum computing. We aim to provide customers with value that they have not experienced so far by leveraging quantum computing technology in future businesses,” said Byoung-Hoon Kim, CTO and Executive Vice President of LG Electronics.

“The relationship between IBM and LG Electronics will permit LG to explore new types of problems associated with emerging technologies and will help strengthen the quantum capabilities in Korea,” said Jay Gambetta, IBM Fellow and VP of Quantum Computing at IBM.
