IBM on Thursday announced the establishment of its first IBM Quantum education and research initiative for Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU), led by Howard University and 12 other HBCUs.
The IBM-HBCU Quantum Center will provide access to its quantum computers, and collaborate on academic, education, and community outreach efforts.
The initiative aims to prepare and cultivate talent at HBCUs from all science, technology, engineering, and math fields for the quantum era.
