Quantum computing holds great promise for achieving immense computational power. While reaching the full potential of this paradigm presents considerable technical challenges, current Noisy Intermediate Scale Quantum (NISQ) devices have already demonstrated an advantage over classical hardware for particular computational tasks. Such demonstrations were achieved through incredible progress in designing quantum systems, engineering their environment, and controlling them effectively, leading to significant improvements in coherence times, gate fidelities, and the ability to integrate more qubits into a single quantum processor.

While the development of quantum hardware remains the primary challenge, many bottlenecks exist in the classical control hardware and software, where optimizations play a critical role for near-term quantum computing. This workshop introduces a new platform for implementing quantum control protocols, executing them on a wide range of quantum hardware, and optimizing their performance. This hardware and software solution, the Quantum Orchestration platform, combines a unique processor architecture that allows the most cutting-edge real-time control capabilities. We will demonstrate how the platform can control various setups and present live code use cases. Some examples will include feedback for error correction and repeat until success protocols; complex calibrations and optimizations; and hybrid quantum-classical algorithms.
