Amazon Launches Amazon Braket To Boost Quantum Computing Research

Amazon recently announced the launch of Amazon Braket which is a fully managed quantum computing service on AWS to boost research in this space. It aims to provide a user-friendly platform to get started with quantum computers and further explore the field with its potential applications.

Amazon Braket will provide an environment to design quantum algorithms, test them on simulated quantum computers, and run them on different types of quantum computing hardware. It will also provide managed Jupyter notebooks with pre-installed developer tools, sample algorithms, and tutorials to get started.

It will provide researchers access to quantum annealing hardware from D-Wave, and two types of gate-based quantum computers — ion-trap devices from IonQ and systems built on superconducting qubits from Rigetti, to carry their research. 

The company said that to test the quantum algorithms researcher can troubleshoot using a software-based simulator included in the Amazon Braket SDK. They can also use the service’s high-performance, fully managed simulator to explore larger, more complex designs.

Quantum computing has the potential to solve computational problems that are beyond the reach of classical computers and is particularly useful in areas such as chemical engineering, material science, drug discovery, financial portfolio optimisation, and machine learning. Amazon aims to help researchers explore the field and acquire the required skills by providing easy access to quantum computing hardware. 

It allows researchers to build their own algorithms from scratch or choose from a set of pre-built algorithms. Once you have built your algorithm, Amazon Braket provides a choice of simulators to test, troubleshoot and run your algorithms. 

The company believes that Amazon Braket will allow researchers to evaluate the potential of quantum computing for the organisation and build expertise. 

Amazon Braket is currently available in the US-East (N. Virginia), US-West (Oregon) and US-West (N. California) AWS Regions.
