IonQ said that it will integrate its quantum computing platform with Qiskit, an open-source quantum computing software developer kit.

The move comes as IBM has backed Qiskit as the quantum computing programming standard.

Specifically, IonQ's integration will make its 11-qubit system available to more than 275,000 users of Qiskit.

Quantum computing vendors are hoping to leverage the open-source community to create applications that can accelerate development. IonQ is available via Amazon Braket and Microsoft Azure Quantum.

A few key points:

  • Qiskit users can submit programs to IonQ's platform without writing new code.
  • Qiskit users with an IonQ account can run quantum programs IonQ's platform with little modification.
  • Zapata's quantum software platform Orquestra will integrate via a direct IonQ partnership as well as Qiskit.
  • IonQ will also release ad open-source provider library that integrates with Qiskit and is available through Github or The Python Package Index

IonQ recently launched its product roadmap and announced plans to go public
