QUA is basically the language of the Quantum Orchestration Platform, QUA is what we believe the first candidate to become what we define as the ‘quantum computing software abstraction layer. The language runs on the startup’s proprietary Quantum Orchestration Platform. “But beyond that, QUA is what we believe the first candidate to become what we define as the ‘quantum computing software abstraction layer.’ ”. It’s a busy week in the world of quantum computing, and today Tel Aviv-based Quantum Machines, a startup that is building a software and hardware stack for controlling and operating quantum computers, announced the launch of QUA, a new language that it calls the first “standard universal language for quantum computers.”. Once everything is programmed in QUA and then compiled to the Quantum Orchestration Platform, then you also get the full benefit of the underlying hardware.”. “QUA is basically the language of the Quantum Orchestration Platform,” Sivan told me. The idea here is that if the company manages to make its own hardware the standard for controlling these systems, then its language will — almost by default — become the standard as well. "But it's another thing to develop it to be both beautiful and supported by an underlying hardware that is then adopted by itself. QUA is qubit agnostic and supports all quantum processors. "QUA is the first-ever programming language designed with the needs of quantum research in mind and offers teams a powerful and intuitive language designed not … A quantum computing startup called Quantum Machines has released a new programming language called QUA. Basically, you have a software abstraction layer and then, you get to the era of software and everything accelerated.”. Of course, if its Quantum Orchestration Platform becomes widely used -- and it already has an impressive list of users today -- then QUA will also see wide adoption. Israeli startup Quantum Machines, which is developing a system consisting of both hardware and software for the control and operation of quantum computers, has announced the launch of a new programming language called QUA.Using the new language, research groups will be … “But it’s another thing to develop it to be both beautiful and supported by an underlying hardware that is then adopted by itself. It’s a busyweek in the world of quantum computing and today Tel Aviv-based Quantum Machines, a startup that is building a software and hardware stack for controlling and operating quantum computers, announced the launch of QUA, a new language that it calls the first “standard universal language for quantum computers.”. We had previously reported on Quantum Machines Quantum Orquestration Platform, which includes an analog front end and pulse processor called OPX, to provide the electronic signals that control the qubits.Now, they have announced a new software programming language called QUA that allows someone to develop a quantum program and have it compiled all the way down to the … Quantum Machines also built a compiler, XQP, which can then optimize the programs for the specific underlying hardware, in this case, Quantum Machine's Pulse Processor assembly language. “It’s one thing to build a beautiful language,” said Sivan. The company argues that its QUA language is the first language to combine quantum operations at the pulse level and universal classical operations. “If you want to squeeze out everything quantum computers can give you, you better use low-level languages in the first place,” he argued, For low-level developers, Sivan argues, QUA will represent a paradigm shift. “The transition from having just specific circuits -- physical circuits for specific algorithms -- to the stage at which the system is programmable is the dramatic point. "This is a real paradigm shift and these guys are experiencing in its full capacity -- and it's not only the accelerated process of programming and working, but also the capabilities themselves. Quantum Machines, creator of the first complete hardware and software solution for the control and operation of quantum computers, announced today the launch of QUA as a standard universal language for Quantum Computing.QUA allows researchers to intuitively program …
