Introduction to Quantum Computing at IBM

Presenter: Moitreyee Mukherjee-Roy, program director, IBM Research Offering
(Cloud, AI, Quantum)

Abstract: Though still early in its development, quantum computing has been available on real hardware via the cloud the past few years. This radically new kind of computing opens up the possibility of solving some problems that perhaps will be intractable for “classical” computers in the foreseeable future. 

Hear about the motivation for quantum computing, and the types of problems to which it is being applied. Also, a glimpse of the IBM Quantum roadmap and IBM Quantum Network will be shared.

Bio: Moitreyee Mukherjee-Roy has 25 years of experience within the semiconductor and microelectronics industry, including global work experience in different countries, in a variety of technical and management positions. Her experience ranges from semiconductor R&D, microprocessor design and management, research lab management, and competitive analyses & IP monetization. She has led several large projects, JDs, international research consortia; established new technical competencies from the ground up, and built teams to deliver key responsibilities.
She has served on technical committees for SPIE Microlithography and ECS, and currently serves on the IEEE nanotechnology council for quantum computing, neuromorphic and unconventional computing. Mukherjee-Roy held an adjunct professor position at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore, and authored or co-authored more than 40 journal and conference publications. She holds 12 US patents, and several applications. She holds a PhD in electrical engineering, and a masters degree in materials science and engineering.
