Quantum computers promise to solve certain problems that are intractable on any current or future classical computer. Superconducting quantum bits (qubits) have emerged as one of the most promising candidates for building such a quantum computer, and is the architecture IBM is pursuing. This talk begins with an overview of superconducting qubits and metrics for benchmarking them, followed by a holistic metric called quantum volume used for benchmarking noisy near-term quantum processors in general. While the focus is often on the quantum processors themselves, the software that implements algorithms, compiles quantum circuits, and controls the quantum hardware is of utmost importance. Qiskit is the open-source quantum computing framework supported by IBM, and has recently been expanded to provide lab-level experimental access to quantum processors on the cloud.
