Community Detection using Hybrid Quantum Annealing on Amazon Braket – Part 1

As of 11/17/2022, D-Wave is no longer available on Amazon Braket and has transitioned to the AWS Marketplace. Therefore, information on this page may be outdated. Learn more. Many customers are facing the challenge of efficiently extracting information hidden within complex network structures. For example, a healthcare insurance company needs to identify fraudulent claims through […]

Exploring Simon’s Algorithm with Daniel Simon

Introduction Customers exploring quantum computing often rely on existing algorithms to learn the basics or evaluate new services. Amazon Braket includes many such algorithms in its SDK and managed notebooks. In this post, we will explore one of the first quantum algorithms invented, and a new addition to our Amazon Braket examples: Simon’s algorithm. We […]

Quantum Chemistry with Qu&Co’s (now Pasqal) QUBEC on Amazon Braket

(Update: Pasqal and Qu&Co announced a merger on January 11, 2022.) In this post, we discuss the progress and limitations of chemistry simulations on current quantum computers, and introduce Qu&Co‘s QUBEC, a quantum computational platform that is specifically designed for chemistry and materials science simulations. The post describes QUBEC’s architecture and how it integrates with […]
