Quantum Software Consortium


Quantum computers and networks hold great promise to revolutionize information and communication technologies. Applications of large-scale quantum computers have been known and studied since the mid-1990’s, but their realization is still relatively far into the future. The expected availability, during the coming decade, of small-scale qubit platforms and networks brings the exciting possibility to pioneer quantum algorithms and protocols for few-qubit applications. The Quantum Software Consortium unites researchers from computer science, mathematics, and physics to develop and demonstrate quantum software.
