PI Thomas Monz and the AQT together with the UIBK on evolving Quantum Computers


Quantum Computers by AQT and University of Innsbruck leverage "Cirq" for Quantum Algorithm Development.

Quantum computers promise to solve problems that are out of reach for today’s supercomputers. Programming quantum computers differs radically from what programmers are used today and thus new programming languages are required. A collaborative effort by Alpine Quantum Technologies (AQT) and the University of Innsbruck allows direct access to the ion-trap quantum computer in Innsbruck via Cirq, a framework developed by Google focused on developing and implementing quantum algorithms. Cirq can be used to explore quantum algorithms on the different hardware architectures, superconducting electronics and trapped ions. [...]
