Enter the IBM Q Experience: A One-of-a-Kind Platform for Quantum Computing in the Cloud

  • Vladimir Silva


In this chapter we take a look at quantum computing in the cloud with IBM Q Experience: the first platform of its kind. The chapter starts with an overview of the Composer, the web console used to visually create circuits, submit experiments, explore hardware devices, and more. Next, you will learn how to create your first experiment and submit it to the simulator or real quantum device. IBM Q Experience features a powerful REST API to control the life cycle of the experiment, and this chapter will show you how with detailed descriptions of the end points and request parameters. Finally, the chapter ends with a practical implementation of the official Python library (dubbed IBMQuantumExperience) for Node JS. This custom Node JS library will put your asynchronous Javascript and REST API skills to the test. Let’s get started.
