Now, it’s time for Coherence, the quantum executive summary, where I take a moment to highlight some of the business impacts we’ve discussed today, in case things got too nerdy at times. Let’s recap.
qBraid is one of six next-gen startups in the nation’s first quantum accelerator, Duality. qBraid has come out with a cloud environment that lets users both learn and experiment with quantum programming. Based on Jupyter notebooks, the site imports tutorials from projects like IBM’s Qiskit and Microsoft’s Q# and gathers them in one place. Users can interact with the tutorials and write their own code, all without installing anything or worrying about dependencies.
While you’re learning on qBraid, the site lets you transpile code to run on any listed supported quantum hardware — for example, write in Google Cirq and run on Qiskit. If you have an account with one of the hardware providers or a cloud service like Amazon Braket, you can pass the code on to run on real machines. Otherwise, simulation of up to 10 qubits is also supported in the environment.
As users solve interesting problems, they’re encouraged to post blogs on the site. This doesn’t quite capture what gets posted. Blogs are actually interactive with code to help others learn. It would be interesting to see what kind of community grows here for knowledge sharing. Overall, the qBraid team is trying to create the easiest-to-use quantum coding platform, and it seems to be well on its way.
That does it for this episode. Thanks to Kanav Setia for joining to discuss qBraid. Thank you for listening.
