ProjectQ - A software framework for quantum computing
 
Date: 2017-10-16
Time: 10:30
Venue: M830
Speaker: Damian Steiger

ETH Zurich

Abstract:
Quantum computers promise to transform our notions of computation by offering a completely new paradigm. A high level quantum programming language and optimizing compilers are essential components to achieve scalable quantum computation. In order to address this, we introduce the ProjectQ software framework - an open source effort to support both theorists and experimentalists by providing intuitive tools to implement and run quantum algorithms. In this talk, I will give an introduction about what kind of software is needed to help achieve competitive quantum computing. Afterwards, I will present our ProjectQ quantum compiler, which compiles a quantum algorithm from our high-level Python-embedded language down to low-level quantum gates available todays hardware.
