D-Wave published on Github the qbsolv tool for programming quantum computers
D-Wave, developer of quantum computing systems and programming tools, Published on Github the source code of his qbsolv project, about which reported on the official site company.
Quantum computing systems made by D-Wave have been tested by NASA, Google and some labs since 2013. A translation of the main tool, software that can create code for quantum systems built on the principle of using qubits , – in open source, will greatly accelerate the development of this field. At least, that is what D-Wave believes.
The main difficulty in using quantum computing systems is that standard von Neumann logic does not apply to them. Kubit, the quantum discharge used to store information, has two states at once. Using only 0 or 1 in it, as is the case for actual classical systems based on the use of binary code, is not possible.
For this reason, software capable of programming quantum systems is almost as valuable, if not more so, to progress than quantum computers themselves.
Qbsolv is used for solving optimization problems of wide practical application. With this software it is possible to process large amounts of data by automatically splitting them into small segments, which are processed in parallel mode by separate segments from the D-Wave quantum processor qubits, and then combined into one overall solution.
According to the company, as the power of quantum computing systems increases, the segments of tasks suitable for processing by a quantum computer will also increase, which will lead to a significant increase in the final efficiency. At the same time, according to the developers’ assurance, the qbsolv package allows increasing the performance of already existing D-Wave computing systems by up to twenty times.
Besides qbsolv there is another tool for programming quantum systems, the qmasm package, the source code of which is published on Github by Scott Paquin of Los Alamos National Laboratory. It, too, is applicable to D-Wave computers. The lab staff has now switched to using qbsolv.
