I would like to try and ADMM optimizer as shown in Qiskit Tutorial in Quantum Lab. Firstly, I imported necessary libraries (copy/paste from the Tutorial):

import time

import numpy as np

from qiskit.optimization.algorithms import CobylaOptimizer, MinimumEigenOptimizer
from qiskit.optimization.problems import QuadraticProgram
from qiskit.optimization.algorithms.admm_optimizer import ADMMParameters, ADMMOptimizer

When I started the import this error appeared:

AttributeError: module 'qiskit' has no attribute 'quantum_info'

Since I only copied the code, it seems there is some bug. Does anybody know how to solve this?

Note: I work in Quantum Lab in IBM Q Experience interface

Looks like a glitch. It is not reproducible under my account. I've seen similar errors when there's mismatch in versions between Qiskit Aqua and Terra installed locally, but I don't think it is the case in Quantum Lab. Try to restart the kernel or create a new notebook and run the same imports.

  • $\begingroup$ I tried to run the code again and it works. Probably there was some error on Quantum Lab side. Thanks for the suggestion. $\endgroup$ Commented Sep 25, 2020 at 6:48
