A detailed, end-to-end assessment of a quantum algorithm for portfolio optimization, released by Goldman Sachs and AWS

In this post we’ll walk you through some key takeaways from a paper published today by scientists from Goldman Sachs and AWS describing a quantum algorithm for portfolio optimization.

Designing hybrid algorithms for neutral-atom quantum hardware using Bayesian optimization

Designing hybrid algorithms for neutral-atom quantum hardware using Bayesian optimization

BMW sponsors PhD students to research novel approaches to computational challenges. Today we’ll show you how they bridge the gap between academia and industry, to solve some of the hardest problems in industry using Bayesian protocols for quantum optimization problems.

Optimization of robot trajectory planning with nature-inspired and hybrid quantum algorithms

Introduction The problem of robot motion planning is pervasive across many industry verticals, including (for example) automotive, manufacturing, and logistics. In the automotive industry, robotic path optimization problems can be found across the value chain in body shops, paint shops, assembly, and logistics, among others [1]. Typically, hundreds of robots operate in a single plant […]

Goldman Sachs and AWS examine efficient ways to load data into quantum computers

Suppose you are trying to solve a problem of interest (e.g., portfolio optimization or machine learning), and you are given some classical data, neatly arranged into a matrix A. Your plan is to solve this problem using a quantum algorithm to process the data. For example, you may be trying to solve a linear system […]

Noise in Quantum Computing

Customers looking to solve their hardest computational problems often wonder about the production-readiness of quantum computing. They want to know when a full-scale, fault-tolerant quantum computer will be available, and what the obstacles are to achieving this ambitious goal. Current generation quantum computers are not fault-tolerant and have limited utility, but customers are experimenting with […]

A guide to BMW’s Quantum Computing for Automotive Challenges

Post Event Update We had a great time in Munich with the BMW Group at the Quantum Computing for Automotive Challenges event on July 20-21. Dr. Helmut Katzgraber, Sr. Practice Manager for the AWS Quantum Solutions Lab, reported: “To date, the application scope of quantum computers for real-world problems remains narrow. This is why identifying […]

Announcing the AWS Center for Quantum Networking

Over the last decade, governments and technology companies have invested heavily in research and development of quantum computers that have the potential to revolutionize science and technology. While there is still a long way ahead, these investments have already transformed quantum computers: They have evolved from delicate laboratory systems accessible to only a few research […]
