IBM has revamped its quantum computing programming tools to enable developers to use a better-streamlined approach to carry out experiments and access quantum circuits.
The tools, IBM Quantum Composer and IBM Quantum Lab replace IBM Quantum experience. IBM claimed that over 280,000 registered users execute above 1 billion hardware circuits daily on its quantum simulators and hardware.
The new programming tools are a part of a broader quantum computing effort to create a developer ecosystem implementing a Qiskit programming language. The company created the quantum computing hardware roadmap in September.
Below are how Quantum Programming Tools work:
- IBM Quantum Composer enables developers to build, visualize, and implement quantum circuits. Its user interface is familiar to the developers and intends to attract a lot of programming levels.
- IBM Quantum Lab allows developers to build quantum experiments and applications through Qiskit in the cloud. The software is based on a browser and can replicate noise impact on algorithms and circuits.
There are more features in the new tools; it includes a dashboard with available services, jobs, reservations, and panels to manage jobs, perform tasks, and check status.
Also, IBM added more documentation and guides for quantum programming.
