Meet Silq: The first intuitive programming language for quantum computersIt is tempting to claim that existing quantum languages are roughly as expressive as assembly languages,” Benjamin Bichsel, one of the researchers who created Silq, told Digital Trends. For those who want to design their own quantum algorithms, rather than relying on pre-made quantum algorithm frameworks, solutions like Silq could be very interesting. In the 60s and 60s, a similar period had elapsed since the switching on of ENIAC, the first general-purpose digital computer, in 1946. Silq addresses a fundamental problem that significantly complicates the development of quantum programs, compared to classical programs,” Bichsel said. But while assembly programs gave users unparalleled control over their machines, they were long, complex, and difficult to debug. Silq is, its creators claim, the world’s first high-level quantum language. In both cases, there was, or is, a whole lot of promise ahead for both modes of computing.
