Why AWS Could Own The Future of Quantum Computing

There is a lot of learning but not much in the way of a viable business, according to the GM of AWS Braket service, Richard Moulds. The message we got was we needed to deliver a consistent multi-technology platform around quantum computing that gets around all this jumping. We wanted to build a platform for quantum computing, not a showcase for a particular technology,” Moulds explains. This kind of deep competitive understand can also come in handy if and when quantum computing blows up enough for AWS to truly leverage the Braket service at meaningful scale. “The moment quantum computing does something interesting in a provable fashion there will be a landslide of demand.

a Buyer’s Guide to Quantum as a Service: Qubits For Hire

A quantum computing (QC) service is hard enough to understand when it's explained to you plainly. Here's the general idea: The first quantum computing (QC) services, or quantum-like services, being offered to commercial customers are experiments. When a programmer specifies a quantum circuit using cQASM, the Quantum Inspire editor generates a graph of the circuit, like the simple one above. It's one of the visual tools used to generate an expression of a quantum circuit -- in quantum terms, to generate a Hamiltonian. The effort stemmed from founder William "Whurley" Hurley's work as chair of the IEEE's Quantum Computing Working Group.

How to Prepare Your Firm For The Quantum Computer Revolution

While an operationally viable quantum computer seems beyond the horizon to most, the steps needed to prepare for its inevitability are indeed within sight. We need more advanced planning in cyberspace to prepare for the impact of quantum computing, where, without some changes, it will undercut all internet integrity and confidentiality – an economic and social disaster. This is where strategic acting can come into its own.
