What can Qiskit do
Qiskit accelerates the development of quantum applications by providing the complete set of tools needed for interacting with quantum systems and simulators.
- Access to circuits
- Access a rich set of well-studied circuits, which can be used as benchmarks, building blocks in more complex circuits, or as a tool to explore quantum computational advantage.
- Hardware Access
- Execute code on multiple quantum hardware architectures, from superconducting qubits to trapped-ions.
- Quantum Algorithms
- Research and prototype machine learning, optimization, and chemistry applications by building upon a library of quantum algorithms.
- Noise Mitigation
- Study and reduce the impact of noise using built-in modules for noise characterization and circuit optimization.
When you are looking to start Qiskit, you have two options. You can start Qiskit locally, which is much more secure and private, or you get started with Jupyter Notebooks hosted in IBM Quantum Lab.
