Designing a fault-tolerant quantum computer based on Schrödinger-cat qubits

At the AWS Center for Quantum Computing, we are doing scientific research and development on quantum computing algorithms and hardware. This post summarizes findings from our first architecture paper that describes a theoretical blueprint for a fault-tolerant quantum computer that features a novel approach to quantum error correction (QEC). Fair warning, this post dives somewhat […]

Working with PennyLane for variational quantum algorithms and quantum machine learning

The field of quantum computing today resembles the state of machine learning a few decades ago – in many ways. Near-term quantum algorithms for optimization, computational chemistry, and other applications are based on the very same principles that are used to train a neural network. In machine learning, there was no theoretical proof that a […]

〈 Hello | World 〉!

Welcome to the new AWS Quantum Computing blog channel. Quantum computing is hardly the most common topic in dinner conversations, unless you’re a physics geek, but it is becoming more and more talked about, particularly in the business and technology media. In my opinion, quantum computing is an interdisciplinary area with two equally important goals: […]
