About IBM Q quantum devices

Quantum computers are rapidly emerging. Pursued for decades in research labs, prototype machines are today getting bigger and more capable. While quantum is still in its infancy, significant progress is being made across the entire quantum computing technology stack. Today, IBM has several real quantum devices and simulators available for use through the cloud. These devices are accessed and used through Qiskit, and open source quantum software development kit, and IBM Q Experience, which offers a virtual interface for coding a quantum computer.

IBM Q QASM Simulator

qubits

A quantum simulator is an environment designed for quantum researchers and software developers to assess the theoretical behavior of quantum algorithms, and to characterize and understand the impact of different types of simulated noise on applications. They are often paired with real quantum hardware to do development.
