One small step for Qubiter, one giant step for Alibaba

Filed under: Uncategorized — rrtucci @ 10:06 pm

In my previous blog post, I used the example of teleportation of a 1 qubit state to compare 3 popular quantum computer simulators: (1) artiste-qb.net’s Qubiter (of which I am the main author), (2) IBM’s Quantum Experience and (3) Microsoft’s Liqui|> sequel. I gave many reasons why I think Qubiter is much better than the other 2 (clearer, simpler, more logical design, more commands, open source under BSD license, Python, many Jupyter notebooks, includes translators from Qubiter’s qasm to IBM’s qasm and soon to Google’s qasm, …)

Today, I am proud to announce that Qubiter now has 2 of its Jupyter notebooks in both English and Chinese (translator: Dr. Tao Yin, CTO of artiste-qb.net, living in Shenzhen, China)

Alibaba must have heard about our Chinese notebooks and decided to match our move and better it by a smidgen. On Oct 10, 2017, they announced to the press that they are planning to spend $15B over the next 3 years on moonshot projects like AI and quantum computing. At the same time, they unveiled at a conference a quantum computing cloud service.
