(HeraldMailMedia) IonQ has announced participation in the launch of Amazon Web Services (AWS) solution Braket that allows scientists, researchers, and developers to begin experimenting with computers from quantum hardware providers in a single place. Starting today, IonQ’s quantum computers will be accessible to customers with an AWS account.
IonQ’s trapped-ion approach to quantum computing potentially offers reliable and scalable quantum computing. IonQ frames their process around nature, using identical individual atoms that act as the building blocks for our quantum processing units. Through this approach, IonQ can focus on building accurate quantum computers.
Braket refers to “bra-ket,” a standard notation for describing quantum states. The service is expected to launch to all customers in 2020.
Amazon Choosing to Collaborate with Promising Technologies Like IonQ
“We believe that opening up access to current-stage quantum computers is a crucial step in accelerating the development of useful applications. That’s why, in designing Amazon Braket, we chose to collaborate with providers like IonQ, who have built promising technologies that are of interest to our customers,” said Simone Severini, Director, Quantum Computing, Amazon Web Services, Inc. “Together, we can make it easier for researchers to innovate, with the shared goal of realizing the true long-term potential of quantum computing.”
