IonQ’s quantum computers are now fully integrated with Qiskit

“IonQ is excited to make our quantum computers and APIs easily accessible to the Qiskit community,” said Peter Chapman, CEO & President of IonQ. However, just like any other cloud/quantum computing service provider, you will need an account to supply you with the necessary credentials to access the backend. The integration stems from the Qiskit Partner Program, which is a select group of quantum service providers officially verified with Qiskit compatibility. To help developers, IonQ has released an open source provider library that you can find on GitHub and the Python Package Index. The following image shows how you can create a maximally entangled Bell state using Qiskit and run it on IonQ’s quantum computer. With this integration, we’re bringing the world one step closer to the first generation of widely-applicable quantum applications.” What this means is that you should now be able to run programs written in Qiskit directly on IonQ’s quantum hardware without writing ancillary code.
