LG Electronics joins the IBM Quantum Network
The partnership will aid LG in advancing big data, AI, connected cars, IoT, and robotics applications
IBM will give LG Electronics access to its quantum computing systems and Qiskit, in addition to the firm's open source quantum information software development kit.
Further, with IBM Quantum technology, LG can capture the latest advances and applications from quantum computing, in accordance with IBM's quantum roadmap.
Using IBM Quantum technology, LG will also train its employees, allowing the company to examine potential breakthroughs for its industry.
"Based on our open innovation strategy, we plan to use IBM Quantum to develop our competency in quantum computing," said Byoung-Hoon Kim, CTO and executive vice president of LG Electronics.
"We aim to provide customers with value that they have not experienced so far by leveraging quantum computing technology in future businesses."
As part of the IBM Quantum Summit in November 2021, IBM unveiled its Eagle quantum computing processor with 127 qubits. Eagle uses IBM's 3D packaging architecture designed to support advanced quantum processors, including its 1,126-qubit Condor chip scheduled to be released in 2023.
