Quantum Computing Trifecta Previewed On Microsoft Azure Quantum At Build 2020

By IQT News posted 03 Jun 2020

(Forbes) Azure Quantum was highlighted at Microsoft Build 2020 along with other announcements. Microsoft Azure Quantum is a full-stack, open cloud quantum ecosystem first revealed in 2019. Azure Quantum includes access to quantum hardware offered by three different companies: Honeywell Quantum Solutions, IonQ, and Quantum Computing Circuits.
The service also supports the use of Microsoft’s open-source Quantum Development Kit (QDK), Microsoft Azure classical computer, and a quantum simulator. Microsoft doesn’t have a quantum computer on the platform.
This year select customers and partners will be able to preview the Azure Quantum platform. In addition to Microsoft’s open-source QDK, it also added two new modules to the free online training platform called Microsoft Learn.
According to Microsoft, it made enhancements to Azure Quantum as a result of a 2019 survey of potential quantum developers.
Azure quantum developers will be able to use existing libraries or write algorithms with Q# and QDK, then evaluate them on one or all three different quantum hardware technologies.
There is also a Microsoft workshop planned for developers later this year.
