(InterestingEngineering) Although Amazon teased the idea of Quantum computing in the cloud, the company is making it a reality with the launch of Amazon Braket. The new service enables scientists, researchers, and developers to write quantum algorithms and run them on quantum computers. Through the managed service, users can experiment with computers by different quantum hardware providers in one place. The service provides access to quantum computers from D-Wave, lonQ, and Rigetti.
In addition to offering Amazon Braket, AWS is launching the Center for Quantum Computing, which is a research center adjacent to the California Institute of Technology that will bring together the leading quantum computing researchers and engineers in one place to accelerate quantum computing hardware and software development.
Amazon has also announced the Amazon Quantum Solutions Lab, which is a new program that will hook AWS customers up with quantum computing experts from Amazon. AWS will also work with a handful of consultants to provide quantum computing advice to its customers.
