The operating system, named Origin Pilot, is the first homegrown quantum operating system in China. The company indicates that the system has a number of unique features including parallel execution of multiple quantum computing tasks, automatic qubit calibration, and unified management of quantum computing resources. The company’s goal with this operating system is to make quantum computer operations more efficient and stable. It is expected that this operating system will be used with the Origin Quantum Cloud Service which they announced last year. Additional information about Origin Pilot is available on the company’s website here and also in a blog posting (in Chinese) that describes the software in more detail.
