Since late 2019, Amazon Braket has been in private preview. However, Amazon AWS recently announced its general availability. Customers can purchase quantum computing services directly from the Amazon Braket platform. Amazon named the service after a standard quantum notation called Bra–ket that was created in the late 1930s by Paul Dirac, a famous theoretical physicist.
Simulating specific features of a quantum computer on today’s “classical” computers leads to “quantum-inspired” algorithms that mimic certain quantum behaviors. This enables organizations to start realizing some of the benefits of quantum computing and learning more about this promising emerging technology before fully-scaled quantum hardware becomes available.
A new machine learning framework could pave the way for small, mobile quantum networks.
Can human ingenuity assisted by new and emerging technologies overpower Covid-19? Will faster processing of more—and more relevant—data, analyzed with the right models, yield better insights into mitigating the spread of future pandemics, designing effective treatments, and developing successful vaccines?
