Google is gearing up to make Bristlecone available as a cloud computing platform. Bristlecone, Google’s nascent quantum computing platform, will be programmable with Cirq and OpenFermion-Cirq. Cirq, Google’s newly released open-source developer platform, permits quantum algorithm development without requiring a background in quantum physics. It’s twin, OpenFermion-Cirq is tailored to creating chemistry applications; a space likely to be used with quantum computing’s first wave of efforts.
