IBM launched this week its fourth annual program inviting developers to combat climate change with open-source software.
The 2021 Call for Code Global Challenge has grown to 400,000 developers across 179 nations and has generated 15,000 practical applications. IBM’s developments, such as Red Hat OpenShift, IBM Cloud, IBM Watson, IBM Blockchain, and atmospheric data from IBM’s Weather Company, play a key role. Resources and APIs from Intuit and New Relic are part of the program.
Scientists worldwide can use ion-based testbed at Sandia National Laboratories.
A new Department of Energy open-access quantum computing testbed is ready for the public. Scientists from Indiana University recently became the first team to begin using Sandia National Laboratories’ Quantum Scientific Computing Open User Testbed, or QSCOUT.
Quantum computers are poised to become major technological drivers over the coming decades. But to get there, scientists need to experiment with quantum machines that relatively few universities or companies have.
