AWS unveils Amazon Braket quantum computing service | ZDNet

  • Amazon Braket is a new, fully managed AWS service that the company has touted as enabling scientists, researchers, and developers to begin experimenting with computers from quantum hardware providers, such as D-Wave, IonQ, and Rigetti.
  • It’s a single development environment to build quantum algorithms, test them on simulated quantum computers, and try them on a range of different quantum hardware architectures.
  • Furthering its quantum mission, the company’s new AWS Center for Quantum Computing aims to bring together quantum computing experts from Amazon, the California Institute of Technology (Caltech), and other academic research institutions to work together on the research and development of new quantum computing technologies.
  • Lab programs will combine hands-on educational workshops with brainstorming sessions to help customers “work backwards” from business challenges, and then go step-by-step through the process of using quantum computers, AWS said.
