IBM QUANTUM AWARDS: OPEN SCIENCE PRIZE 2021

16 April

IBM Quantum is excited to announce the fourth annual quantum awards (and the second annual Open Science Prize)—an award for those who can present an open source solution to some of the most pressing problems in the field of quantum computing.

This year, the challenge will feature one problem from the field of quantum simulation, solvable through one of two approaches. The best open source solution to each approach will receive a 40,000 prize, and the winner overall will receive another20,000.

Simulating physical systems on quantum computers is a promising application of near-term quantum processors. This year’s problem asks participants to simulate a Heisenberg model Hamiltonian for three interacting atoms on IBM Quantum’s 7-qubit Jakarta system. The goal is to simulate the evolution of a known quantum state with the best fidelity as possible using Trotterization.
