Alibaba Dharma academy released Alibaba cloud quantum development platform to support quantum algorithm and error correction exploration

The reporter recently learned that , Alibaba releases Alibaba cloud quantum development platform (Alibaba Cloud Quantum Development Platform,ACQDP), Open source self-developed quantum computing Simulator “ Chapter too 2.0” A series of applications and quantum cases . This will strongly support practitioners in designing quantum hardware , Testing quantum algorithms , And explore the material 、 Molecular discovery , Applications in areas such as optimization problems and machine learning .

The progress of quantum chips in the past few years has further reduced the uncertainty of quantum computing's way to practical use . And as the size of the system increases , The testing and verification of quantum systems and quantum algorithms is becoming more and more challenging . The method based on classical simulation is a basic tool , But there are inherent bottlenecks . such as , The current storage technology can store less than 60 Quantum states of qubits . Alibaba cloud quantum development platform proposes an original distributed tensor network contraction algorithm , It opens up a new direction of quantum circuit simulation , It can be used to simulate on a larger scale than other methods .

The quantum Laboratory of Dharma Institute has been leading the world in the classical simulation of quantum computing for a long time . before , Its own research “ Chapter too 1.0” An original dynamic splitting method of tensor network contraction is proposed , Dramatically reduce the cost of quantum circuit simulation , It is widely used by the academic and industry . This open source kernel quantum engine “ Chapter too 2.0” Through further algorithm innovation , Once again, reduce resource consumption substantially .

This year, 5 In the laboratory “ Chapter too 2.0” Simulated 2019 year “ Quantum hegemony of Google ” Quantum circuits that claim to be used , It's a task that takes more than 10000 years to design the classic Computing , Compression - 20 Days to complete , It's four orders of magnitude better than the other best solutions . Industry estimates , If through further optimization of hardware resources , Especially to promote GPU Efficiency of use , The algorithm is expected to compress the simulation time to 2 Within days . This series of work caused the academia to rethink the boundary between quantum computation and classical computation .

ACQDP It also includes the support of tens of thousands of qubits developed by the quantum Laboratory of Dharma Academy (4- layer ,3 degree ) Simulation of quantum approximate optimization algorithm based on , And the quantum algorithm and application based on the experimental noise model . This can solve experimental and evaluation problems that cannot be solved by theoretical analysis alone . Based on this open platform , Researchers of quantum computing can customize algorithms for different scenarios , To further improve the simulation efficiency ; And the developed programs and algorithms , It is expected to promote the realization of quantum computer , The practical advantages of quantum computing .

“ The implementation of quantum computing is very challenging . Academia and industry need to work together , Overcoming bottlenecks , Accelerate innovation .” Shi Yaoyun, director of the quantum Laboratory of Dharma academy, explained that ,“ Open research is conducive to accelerating the advent of the quantum age , It's also the best strategy for us to provide quantum computing services to customers and society as soon as possible .”

According to him , In the future, the quantum Laboratory of Dharma academy will have more achievements open source and free output to open research collaborators . The team focuses on quantum bits that are different from the mainstream fluxonium , In the near future, there will be new achievements to share with all walks of life .
