Capgemini’s quantum lab (Q-Lab) comprises quantum technology experts and highly-specialist facilities in the United Kingdom, Portugal and India, to harness the potential of quantum technologies. Capgemini’s Q-Lab will coordinate research programs to develop business-driven client propositions for sectors most likely to benefit from quantum technologies in the medium future – life sciences, financial services, automotive and aerospace. It will also drive early experiments with clients in their quantum journeys and accelerate the building of in-house skills and capabilities.
This initiative leverages the experience of specialist technical teams within the Capgemini stable who have already built scientific and technology capabilities in quantum, through early experimentation and incubation with clients.
In addition, Capgemini has signed an agreement with IBM to become an IBM Quantum Hub providing its clients access to IBM’s quantum computing systems, including the recently announced 127 qubit processor, ‘Eagle’, as well as to IBM’s quantum expertise and Qiskit, IBM’s open-source quantum information software development kit. By working with IBM, Capgemini joins more than 170 IBM Quantum Network members. Together, IBM Quantum team and clients are researching and exploring how quantum computing will help a variety of industries and disciplines, including finance, energy, chemistry, materials science, optimization and machine learning, among many others.
