Quantum Toolsets and Frameworks

The right toolsets for Quantum Computing

There is a Cambrian explosion in both the interest in Quantum Computing and the development of appropriate toolsets that are in the eco-system for both running quantum algorithms on actual hardware and performing quantum simulations. Here we will outline some of the frameworks developed by a range of companies from IBM to Cambridge Quantum Computing to Microsoft. This is not intended to be an exhaustive list, but please do update us and contact us if you see something that we have missed.
