Why do we need it?
Why do we need it?#
Hybrid quantum programs are the future of quantum computing#
QRAM model for circuit-based quantum computation
Why an IR?#
What is interoperability?
Interoperability with specific backends hardware profiles
Optimization passes to classical and quantum code 
Easy to simulate on HPC backends
Motivations for QIR Community/ Alliance?#
Interoperability opens doors to cross-fields problem-solving
