Quantum Computing Professor Researcher Yacoby Elected to American Academy of
“We are honoring the excellence of these individuals, celebrating what they have achieved so far, and imagining what they will continue to accomplish,” said David Oxtoby, President of the American Academy. “The past year has been replete with evidence of how things can get worse; this is an opportunity to illuminate the importance of art, ideas, knowledge, and leadership that can make a better world.” Amir Yacoby Yacoby holds appointments in the Physics Department and at the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) and is a member of the National Academy of Science. Yacoby’s research explores topological quantum computing, interacting electrons in layered materials, spin-based quantum computing and the development of novel quantum sensing probes such as scanning single electron transistors and color...

Quantum computing enables industries to tackle problems they never would have attempted to solve with a classical computer. In 2016, IBM was the first company to put a quantum computer on the cloud, signalling a move from theoretical mathematics to real-world applications and discovering solutions. A few years ago we developed a forecasting tool called a Life-Science Radar to identify key areas in the markets we serve and share our predictions of when these trends will become mainstream. One of the trends identified was Quantum Computing. In 2019 we placed this technology at the very outer section of our Life Sciences Radar diagram as we considered that it would take some years before this technology became “mainstream”. However, technology developments have moved quickly over the last few years, benefiting from faster and more sophisticated...
