What is Qibo?#
Qibo is an open-source full stack API for quantum simulation and quantum hardware control. Qibo aims to contribute as a community driven quantum middleware software with
Simplicity: agnostic design to quantum primitives.
Flexibility: transparent mechanism to execute code on classical and quantum hardware.
Community: a common place where find solutions to accelerate quantum development.
Documentation: describe all steps required to support new quantum devices or simulators.
Applications: maintain a large ecosystem of applications, quantum models and algorithms.
The main components of
Qibo are presented in Getting started
Definition of a standard language for the construction and execution of quantum circuits with device agnostic approach to simulation and quantum hardware control based on plug and play backend drivers.
A continuously growing code-base of quantum algorithms applications presented with examples and tutorials.
Efficient simulation backends with GPU, multi-GPU and CPU with multi-threading support.
Simple mechanism for the implementation of new simulation and hardware backend drivers.
