Realizing quantum spin liquid phase on an analog Hamiltonian Rydberg simulator

This week at re:Invent, we announced the future availability of a Rydberg-atom based quantum computer from QuEra Computing. Launching in 2022, it will introduce a new quantum computing paradigm to Amazon Braket, Analog Hamiltonian Simulation (AHS). AHS uses programmable quantum devices to emulate the behavior of other quantum mechanical systems. Already today, researchers in academia […]

Improving analysis of the computational cost of quantum simulations for chemistry and material science

This post summarizes a recent research paper from the AWS Center for Quantum Computing. The paper provides an improved analysis of quantum simulation of chemical and material systems. This research shows that such simulations can be implemented using fewer elementary quantum operations than previously thought. Computer simulations enable scientists to test their intuition about the […]

Implementing a Recommendation Engine with Amazon Braket

In this blog post, we detail an approach to solving a feature selection problem that implements a recommendation engine using Amazon Braket – the quantum computing service by Amazon Web Services. Our approach tackles the “cold-start” problem that recommendation systems face, produces a solution comparable with traditional approaches, and reaches the required levels of accuracy […]

Announcing the opening of the AWS Center for Quantum Computing

What if by harnessing the properties of quantum mechanics we could model and simulate the behavior of matter at its most fundamental level, down to how molecules interact? The machine that would make that possible would be transformative, changing what we know about science and how we probe nature for answers. Quantum computers have the […]

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 […]
