Solving SAT problems with the Classiq platform on Amazon Braket

Boolean satisfiability problems (SAT) are a well-known class of difficult (NP-Complete) computational problems. The process of finding solutions to these problems can be performed using quantum computers. In this post, we will describe what SAT problems are and show you how to express SAT problems with the Classiq quantum algorithm design platform. We will outline […]

Explore quantum computational advantage with Xanadu’s Borealis device on Amazon Braket

Today, we are excited to launch Borealis, a new quantum processing unit (QPU) on Amazon Braket. Borealis – a special-purpose QPU built by Xanadu – is the first publicly available quantum computer with a claim to quantum computational advantage (sometimes referred to as quantum supremacy or quantum advantage) in a peer-reviewed study. With this launch, […]

Using embedded simulators in Amazon Braket Hybrid Jobs 

Today, we launched a new feature in Amazon Braket Hybrid Jobs, which allows you to run hybrid workloads with simulators that are embedded with your algorithm code. For instance, one of the simulators available in this new feature is the PennyLane Lightning GPU simulator, accelerated by NVIDIA’s cuQuantum library. In this blog post, we show […]

Combinatorial Optimization with Physics-Inspired Graph Neural Networks

Combinatorial optimization problems, such as the traveling salesman problem where we are looking for an optimal path with a discrete number of variables, are pervasive across science and industry. Practical (and yet notoriously challenging) applications can be found in virtually every industry, such as transportation and logistics, telecommunications, and finance. For example, optimization algorithms help […]

Applying classical benchmarking methodologies to create a principled quantum benchmark suite

In this post, we will discuss the current landscape of quantum benchmarking and introduce SupermarQ, Super.tech’s suite of application-based benchmarks designed to overcome the limitations of existing approaches. SupermarQ uses Amazon Braket for device-agnostic access to gate-based quantum processing units (QPUs), so benchmarks can highlight the heterogeneity of quantum computers and their various strengths in […]

Amazon Braket launches OpenQASM support

Last year, we announced that AWS had joined the OpenQASM Technical Steering Committee to help shape a unified approach to express quantum programs across a variety of different hardware technologies. Today, we are excited to announce that customers can now run OpenQASM programs on all gate-based devices on Amazon Braket. Quantum computing is a nascent […]

Setting up a cross-Region private environment in Amazon Braket

At AWS we say that security is “job zero”, by which we mean it is even more important than any number one priority. Amazon Braket is built around this philosophy; we often have conversations with customers who want to be able to work in a secured environment, and access Amazon Braket through private connections rather […]
