In this talk, we introduce Piquasso, a full-stack open source platform for Photonic Quantum Computing built using Python and C++. Piquasso enables users to perform efficient Quantum Computing using continuous variables, which could be used for designing photonic circuits for simulation and machine learning purposes.

Computing the permanent of a matrix finds an important application in the context of boson sampling. Using the BB/FG permanent formula with a reflected binary Gray code, we implemented an FPGA design aimed at maximizing the use of logic and DSP resources to increase the parallelism and reducing the time complexity from $\mathcal{O}(n.2^{n-1})$ to $\mathcal{O}(n.2^{n-3})$. This can be...

In this work, we report on a novel quantum gate approximation algorithm based on the application of parametric two-qubit gates in the synthesis process. The utilization of these parametric two-qubit gates in the circuit design allows us to transform the discrete combinatorial problem of circuit synthesis into an optimization problem over continuous variables. The circuit is then compressed by...
