Quantum research and development (R&D) has received a boost with the announcement of the NVIDIA Quantum Optimized Device Architecture (QODA).
The unified computing platform aims to make quantum computing more accessible with a coherent hybrid quantum-classical programming model.
QODA is an open, unified environment for some of the most powerful computers and quantum processors, improving scientific productivity and enabling greater scale in quantum research.
High performance computing and AI domain experts can use it to add quantum computing to existing applications, leveraging both today’s quantum processors, as well as simulated future quantum machines using NVIDIA DGX systems and a large installed base of NVIDIA GPUs available in scientific supercomputing centres and public clouds.
“Scientific breakthroughs can occur in the near term with hybrid solutions combining classical computing and quantum computing. QODA will revolutionise quantum computing by giving developers a powerful and productive programming model,” said Tim Costa, Director of HPC and Quantum Computing Products at NVIDIA.
Leading quantum organisations are already using NVIDIA GPUs and highly specialised NVIDIA software – NVIDIA cuQuantum – to develop individual quantum circuits. With QODA, developers can build complete quantum applications simulated with NVIDIA cuQuantum on GPU-accelerated supercomputers.
