Nature isn't classical, dammit,
and if you want to make a simulation of nature, you'd better make it quantum mechanical,
and by golly it's a wonderful problem, because it doesn't look so easy.

MIT Quantum Hackathon: iQuHACK 2021 Started on January 30th-31st (EST)


iQuHACK (interdisciplinary Quantum HACKathon) 2021 is MIT's second annual quantum hackathon. We aim to bring people from a diverse set of backgrounds, including physics, computer science, and chemistry, together to explore improvements and applications of near-term quantum devices. As a part of iQuHACK, we are also hosting a workshop on Friday, January 29th. The workshop is focused on the properties and applications of NISQ devices, and is aimed at preparing you for the hackathon.

*Programming Language: If you are in the annealing division, you will use Ocean. If you are in the gate-based computing division, we highly encourage you to use Python and Qiskit.

IBM Q System Planned Maintenance on May 23

There is maintenance planned for our API services on Saturday, May 23 2020, from 8am-12pm EDT. During this time, services on IBM Quantum Experience will be unavailable, and all devices will be unable to retrieve or submit jobs.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us.

Open for application

The application of NTU-IBM Q system is now available.
From now, we will open the IBM Q 20-qubit quantum computing system (NTU-IBM Q System) to researchers from universities and academic institutions in the Republic of China (Taiwan) to apply. Please send the following application documents to IBM Q Hub at NTU ( Once the documents have passed the verification, you can start to use the NTU-IBM Q System. Welcome to join us!

National Taiwan University launched IBM Q Hub at NTU

On 17 January 2019, the National Taiwan University (NTU) announced the launch of the IBM Q Hub at NTU in an opening ceremony attended by the Vice President of NTU, Prof. Ming Syan Chen, Vice President of IBM, Dr. Tze-Chiang Chen, Vice President of IBM Japan, Mr. Noly Morimoto, Global Business Development Leader of IBM Q Network, Mr. Kenneth Wood, Director General of Department of Engineering and Technologies at Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST), Dr. Shawn Shuo-Hung Hsu, President of Institute for Information Industry (III), Dr. C. H. Cho, Division Director of Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI), Prof. Yuh-Renn Wu, Principal Investigator (PI) of NTU-IBM Q Hub project, Prof. Ching-Ray Chang and other participants...


In the last few years, several developed countries are actively integrating National resources to push quantum computing strongly. In Taiwan, however, we still leave related works along in academic institutions separately. The interdisciplinary integration is necessary to catch up with global technoloy trends. Our mission is to form a strong-coupling research team through cultivating quantum computing talents, and seek international cooperation in order to reach quantum-technology establishment locally.

Long term planning

  1. Self-made quantum computer
  2. Cultivation of quantum computing talent
  3. International cooperation
  4. ICT Industrial transformation and upgrading

We finally started a cooperation with IBM and joined IBM Q Network. You can find connections through our center and available 20-qbit IBM Q system for computing.



IBM offers lots of learning materials. You can get started with IBM Q Experience, or continue implementing quantum algorithm through Qiskit.

Quantum Computing Online Curriculum

MIT xPRO online courses begins from introduction toward applications, and also walks through practical problems and implementation.
