Today, IBM updated its Quantum Experience Cloud services with a new API that hopes to increase the ability of both the researchers and parties interested in building a more sophisticated application with its quantum computing system.
In the form of cloud services, IBM had opened 5 qubit computer in NY state labs to public in may 2016. The expectation of this technology was to provide parties to work with quantum computing model. During the same phase, IBM also released a very simple programming language which was similar to write programs as writing musical notes on a staff.
The new API will help the programmers to write scripts in the programming language of their choice.For gaining more connectivity between IBM’s cloud build a quantum computer and traditional computer this API will be helpful.
In IBM, Jerry Chow, the manager of experimental quantum computing group says “The API allows programmers to test more theories and lay the groundwork to scale up these larger systems. What we really want to do is work with the community to figure out what quantum computing looks like in the future when we have a larger number of qubits”.
IBM is hoping to make everyone believe that there are lots of benefits to it basically by offering free access. Google, Intel, Microsoft and startups like D-wave system are also into the working of quantum computing.
Have a look at the journey of IBM quantum lab on the youtube video which was posted last year.
