A Quantum Chapel: Where Computing Meets Spirituality

RPI’s Voorhees Computing Center, originally a cathedral built in 1933, will soon house the IBM Quantum System One. This remarkable fusion of technology and tradition is spearheading the quantum computing frontier. The chapel, adorned with stunning stained-glass windows and a mesmerizing chandelier, will now be home to a 127-qubit IBM Quantum Eagle processor, ushering in a new era of scientific exploration.

A Higher Dimension of Computing

The IBM Quantum System One at RPI stands at the forefront of "utility-scale" quantum computing. What does that mean? It signifies a monumental shift where quantum computers evolve into indispensable scientific tools, unraveling problems that classical systems could never hope to address. This breakthrough transcends boundaries and opens doors to uncharted territories of knowledge.

Nurturing Quantum Brilliance

The Curtis Priem Quantum Constellation, sponsored by RPI alumnus and NVIDIA co-founder Curtis Priem, takes center stage in this quantum odyssey. With the IBM Quantum System One as its crown jewel, this collaborative research hub is geared towards pushing the boundaries of quantum exploration. New faculty members are being recruited to maximize the potential of this quantum marvel.

A Serene Setting for Quantum Discovery

Few computers have the privilege of residing in such a serene setting. The IBM Quantum System One is nestled amidst the elegance of the Voorhees Computing Center. Stained glass windows and gothic-style archways provide a picturesque backdrop to this technological marvel. It's a fusion of past and future, where spirituality meets the cutting edge.

A Celebration of Innovation

The groundbreaking ceremony held at RPI's Curtis R. Priem Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center was graced by luminaries from both IBM and RPI. Marty Schmidt, RPI's President, Darío Gil, Senior Vice President and Director of IBM Research, John E. Kelly III, Chair of RPI's Board of Trustees and former Director of IBM Research, and Curtis Priem, RPI Board of Trustees Vice Chair, all gathered to celebrate this quantum milestone.

Quantum Valley: Where the Future Unfolds

The greater Albany, New York area has a rich history of shaping the future of computing, and this quantum leap further solidifies its role. Schmidt envisions the Hudson River Valley becoming "Quantum Valley," where research capabilities are dramatically amplified. RPI, in collaboration with regional partners, is poised to redefine the possibilities of the Capital Region and the entire State of New York.
