Google’s Quantum Computing Playground lets you run a simulated quantum computer

Google engineers have developed a simulated quantum computer called Quantum Computing Playground that allows you to write, run, and debug software using quantum algorithms.


Quantum Computing Playground runs in a Chrome browser with a simple interactive interface. A scripting language called QScript includes debugging and 3D quantum-state visualization features.


You can efficiently simulate quantum registers up to 22 qubits and run Grover’s and Shor’s algorithms. There’s also a variety of quantum gates built into the scripting language itself.


Quantum-state visualization in Quantum Computing Playground. A set of qubits (“quantum register”) can be visualized typically as a 2D or 3D graph, on which points or bars represent superpositions of qubits, while their color or bar height represent amplitude and phase of a given superposition.

Russ Roberts‘s insight:

This sounds like a fantastic opportunity to “write, run, and debug software using quantum algorithms.”  Although I’m no computer “geek”, the idea of a quantum computer has always fascinated me.  There could be all kinds of amateur radio applications.  For details, visit  Aloha de Russ (KH6JRM).
