DescriptionQuantum computers are becoming “the next big thing.” Recent accomplishments in their physical realization and a substantially increased interest from various stakeholders have led to numerous
quantum computing applications that are currently being investigated–several of them with a promising near-term perspective. However, the best quantum computer is useless without proper software methods and frameworks to use them. Accordingly, several industrial and academic players recently introduced software tools and techniques for quantum computing–all addressing the respective design tasks with a unique and special perspective. This session gives an overview of different and complementary software tools for quantum computing–including references and links to advanced material and corresponding implementations.
