Cambridge Quantum Computing details its compiler for NISQ devices

Cambridge Quantum Computing released a System Description Paper detailing the design and construction of t|ket>™, its quantum software development platform. The paper describes advanced features that enable users to get optimal performance from their quantum software development work, regardless of the quantum computer used. 

According to the vendor, t|ket>™ offers significant improvement in terms of gate count and gate depth over other comparable compiler systems when evaluated on realistic quantum circuits and real quantum architectures. Further, for devices with heterogeneous gate and qubit error rates, t|ket>™ can use the component-level fidelity information to appreciably improve overall device performance.

CQC wants to make NISQ-era quantum computers optimally effective and useful in areas such as Quantum Chemistry for Material Science and Quantum Machine Learning for Finance.
