Amazon Braket now supports verbatim compilation and native gates with IonQ

As of 05/17/2023, the ARN of the IonQ Harmony device changed to arn:aws:braket:us-east-1::device/qpu/ionq/Harmony. Therefore, information on this page may be outdated. Learn more. Previously, when customers submitted a circuit to the IonQ device on Amazon Braket, the circuit was automatically compiled to native instructions. Today, we are extending the verbatim compilation feature to IonQ’s 11-qubit […]

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 […]
