Build quantum applications and experiments with Qiskit in a cloud programming environment.
What is it?¶
Qiskit is an open-source framework to program quantum computers.
In Quantum Lab, you can write scripts that combine Qiskit code, equations, visualizations, and narrative text in a customized Jupyter Notebook environment — no installation required. Run code on real quantum hardware or simulators. Store, access, and manage your files from anywhere.
What are its benefits?
No downloads or installations
Access Qiskit from any standard web browser wherever you have internet access – just sign in. Its convenient, lightweight access is ideal for teaching and learning.
Run on quantum hardware
Run your code on real quantum hardware to conduct your own experiments.
1GB to store, access, and manage your notebook files in Quantum Lab.
Teach with Quantum Lab
Create engaging lectures that combine explanatory text, mathematical equations, code, and results. Step through topics one section at a time and modify your code on the fly to demonstrate concepts of quantum computing. Build assignments in Quantum Lab that encourage students to explore and learn on their own.
