IBM launched its IBM Q initiative not too long ago. It’s the first initiative of its kind in the industry to build commercially available universal quantum computers for business and science applications. Samsung is one of the first clients to tap into the IBM Q quantum computing systems to explore practical applications of the technology.

Samsung is now a part of the IBM Q Network which includes other Fortune 500 companies like JPMorgan Chase, Diamler AG, Barclays and Honda. The network will work directly with IBM to advance quantum computing.

Samsung and quantum computing

Quantum computers are different from conventional digital electronic computers that are based on transistors, they’re the ones that we use on a daily basis. Quantum computing is done using quantum-mechanical phenomena. Data is not encoded into binary digits or bits. Quantum computing requires quantum bits which can be in superpositions of states.

Samsung is going to explore the use of quantum computing to research a variety of use cases in which this technology may impact the future of the semiconductor and electronics industry. With Samsung’s increasing focus on further cementing its position as a dominant player in the semiconductor market, it makes perfect sense for the company to explore this advanced technology.

“By joining the IBM Q Network and having access to quantum systems and world-class expertise, we hope to take part in unveiling the unexplored potential of quantum computing and pave a road forward for future commercial applications,” said Seongjun Park, the VP of Samsung’s Advanced Institute of Technology.
