# QAM¶

class pyquil.api._qam.QAM[source]

The platonic ideal of this class is as a generic interface describing how a classical computer interacts with a live quantum computer. Eventually, it will turn into a thin layer over the QPU and QVM’s “QPI” interfaces.

The reality is that neither the QPU nor the QVM currently support a full-on QPI interface, and so the undignified job of this class is to collect enough state that it can convincingly pretend to be a QPI-compliant quantum computer.
