Researchers at the University of Technology Sydney (UTS) in Australia say they will soon unveil a quantum-era programming environment at the UTS Center for Quantum Software and Information (UTS:QSI).
The environment integrates research into a quantum programming language and quantum compilers featuring verification and analysis tools that prove the correctness of the quantum program.
UTS:QSI director Runyao Duan says the center is forward-looking and will construct interfaces that are "independent of the architecture and more flexible" for far more complicated machines with hundreds or thousands of quantum bits that are not yet built.
"Designing and implementing a quantum programming language and environment...takes years," notes UTS:QSI research director Minsheng Ying. "If we wait until the machine is there, other people will definitely be there."
The center's staff is already discussing training a new type of software engineer and envisioning quantum computers communicating with each other over a quantum Internet.
