An Introduction to Quantum Computing with Open Source Cirq Framework

As the title suggests what we are about to begin discussing, this article is an effort to understand how far we have come in Quantum Computing and where we are headed in the field in order to accelerate scientific and technological research, through an Open Source perspective with Cirq.

First, we will introduce you to the world of Quantum Computing. We will try our best to explain the basic idea behind the same before we look into how Cirq would be playing a significant role in the future of Quantum Computing. Cirq, as you might have heard of recently, has been breaking news in the field and in this Open Science article, we will try to find out why.

Before we start with what Quantum Computing is, it is essential to get to know about the term Quantum, that is, a subatomic particle referring to the smallest known entity. The word Quantum is based on the Latin word Quantus, meaning, “how little”, as described in this short video:

It will be easier for us to understand Quantum…
