The time to get started with Quantum Computing is now | Quantum computing has the potential to transform a huge number of industries. The race to build quantum technology is on as you are reading this. All business and technology leaders should start looking into the impact that quantum computing can bring to their industry. Experts estimate that the first commercial applications will appear in 2-5 years. In 5-10 years we can build more and more complex applications. By that time, the golden opportunity to be among the first ones will be gone. In this blog post, I’ll give an overview of where the quantum computing industry is today and where it may be going to.  Source: QUANSCIENT.   The time to get started with Quantum Computing is now…

AWS Announces New Quantum Computing Service (Amazon Braket) along with AWS Center for Quantum Computing and Amazon Quantum Solutions Lab | Quantum computing has the potential to solve computational problems that are beyond the reach of classical computers. It promises to transform areas such as energy storage, chemical engineering, material science, drug discovery, process optimization, and machine learning. However, the application of quantum computing to date has been limited mainly to proof of concept studies with limited practical use. To help accelerate the development of this potentially disruptive technology, AWS is establishing the AWS Center for Quantum Computing, where quantum experts from Amazon and academia will collaborate on the research and development of new quantum computing technologies and applications with the goal of solving real-world problems. While the Center’s work will be focused on solving longer-term technical challenges to quantum computing, some customers are ready to begin exploring quantum computing and gain experience now. But today, it’s hard for customers to engage with quantum computers, particularly if they want to evaluate different early stage technologies, each with their own development, simulation, and test environments. Without the opportunity to develop the necessary skills, it’s difficult for customers to identify when quantum computing will provide benefit, and learn how they can design algorithms and discover new applications. To help customers overcome these challenges, AWS is launching the Amazon Braket service and the Amazon Quantum Solutions Lab so that customers can begin learning and experimenting with quantum computing today.  Source: amazon.   AWS Announces New Quantum Computing Service (Amazon Braket) along with AWS Center for Quantum Computing and Amazon Quantum Solutions Lab…
