AWS joins the OpenQASM 3.0 Technical Steering Committee

In the early 1990s, James Gosling introduced the Java programming language. One of the key advantages to Java was that programmers could write code once and have it run on many different backends, without needing to concern themselves with the underlying hardware. This was enabled by an intermediate representation called Java bytecode. Java programs were […]

Generating quantum randomness with Amazon Braket

Introduction – the need for randomness Random numbers are a crucial resource used throughout modern computer science. For example, in computation, randomized algorithms give efficient solutions for a variety of fundamental problems for which no deterministic algorithms are available. This includes Monte Carlo methods that have widespread applications in science for the simulation of physical, […]

Low-overhead quantum computing with Gottesman-Kitaev-Preskill qubits

Introduction This post summarizes a research paper from the AWS Center for Quantum Computing that proposes a direction to implement fault-tolerant quantum computers with minimal hardware overhead. This research shows that by concatenating the surface code with Gottesman, Kitaev, and Preskill (GKP) qubits, it is theoretically possible to achieve a logical error rate of 10-8 […]
