Recent years have seen the emergence of a large variety of Noisy, Intermediate Scale Quantum (NISQ) processors with a few tens of noisy qubits. In this presentation, I will show that the ability to numerically simulate the noisy behavior of such processors – whether digital or analog -- with high-performance classical simulations is crucial in order to design, optimize and test quantum algorithms for these chips, and hence identify potential applications.
