NVIDIA calls their new Quantum computing platform, Quantum-Optimized Device Architecture (QODA), a coherent hybrid-quantum-classical programming model because it is inherently interoperable with existing classical parallel programming models such as CUDA, OpenMP, and OpenACC.

This hybrid platform allows developers to create applications that work across classical and quantum systems to accelerate development and problem-solving capabilities.

This programming and compilation workflow enables an effective programming environment for accelerating hybrid algorithm research and development activities through standard interoperability with GPU processing and circuit simulation that scales from laptops to distributed multi-node, multi-GPU architectures.

Classical computing refers to the use of HPC clusters as well as other forms of computing resources such as GPUs and CPUs.
