IBM Quantum has been “ratted out” by its partners

Filed under: Uncategorized — rrtucci @ 2:04 am

5 months ago (April 7, 2018), IBM Quantum announced to much fanfare that it had selected 8 qc startups to partner with. Well, today I heard from a little bird that IBM CHARGES its esteemed partners

$250,000/yr

if they want to use its more advanced quantum chips that are not open to the general public. You could buy a sizable fraction of our qc startup artiste-qb.net for that price! And our qc software stack is much better (much better designed and more complete for quantum AI tasks) than IBM’s “designed by committee” quantum software stack. We offer Qubiter (Write Once, Simulate Anywhere), Quantum Fog, Quantum Edward, and BayesForge. LOL, it would be a great honor to be anointed an IBM partner, but we respectfully and regretfully cannot accept the honor. Thanks anyway IBM for the generous offer.

Another widely known secret is that IBM Quantum has refused to participate 2 years in a row, in the quantum Machine Learning incubator class offered yearly by the CDL (Creative Destruction Lab, part of Univ of Toronto). Google and Microsoft have refused too. If you think IBM-Think nurtures qc startups, think again. Google and Microsoft don’t either

I think IBM-Think should try to be more friendly to startups. God knows IBM needs all the friends it can get. It’s well known that IBM stock has been in decline for many years. Warren Buffet used to own a lot of IBM stock but he sold it all; he bought Apple stock instead.

  1. Oh c’mon man, that’s a cheap price nowadays, what with “crisis” and all! You just lack the “means for production”, Have you ever sustained a real Lab all by yourself sorta like down Linkoln?
    As for the stocks, only a war can warm them up right now and even that may soon happen, so don’t worry so much “over split milk” – as for the milk, it have not just being splet, it is already spread amog the loyal shareholders – with their tongues out! But I like your style so here’s my provision – you should instead carry over all these neighborhood hacks with all the skilled boys and girls and why, you should even employ Quatto man! There’s a reason they called them the scouts once. After all, a war is acoming. What do you have to loose?
