Quantum Chemistry and Machine Learning with Qiskit

Quantum computing is an emerging field of computing which possesses enormous near-term potential for transforming various fields, such as quantum chemistry, beyond the current capabilities of classical computing. Several academic and industrial laboratories have already performed pioneering studies on quantum chemical systems with quantum devices and this technology will become more important to quantum chemists as the field matures.

During this session, the team will speak on some of these exciting advancements in Quantum Chemistry followed by a discussion on Machine Learning for Noisy Intermediate-Scale Quantum (NISQ) devices with Qiskit.

Join us as IBM Q highlights the latest advances in the field of quantum computing with an emphasis on recent efforts in quantum chemistry. IBM Q will also showcase current capabilities and highlight the software and chemistry concerns to outline the promises and challenges that remain for this field.
