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.

Towards practical molecular electronic structure simulations on NISQ devices with Amazon Braket and Kvantify’s FAST-VQE algorithm

Towards practical molecular electronic structure simulations on NISQ devices with Amazon Braket and Kvantify’s FAST-VQE algorithm

Quantum computing’s potential for computational chemistry is immense, but there are practical limitations. We show how Kvantify’s FAST-VQE algorithm can deliver great accuracy, performance, superior cost-effectiveness, driving us closer to transformative applications in drug discovery.

Constructing an “end-to-end” quantum algorithm: a comprehensive technical resource for algorithms designers

Constructing an “end-to-end” quantum algorithm: a comprehensive technical resource for algorithms designers

Today we’re introducing Quantum algorithms: A survey of applications and end-to-end complexities. This is a comprehensive resource, designed for quantum computing researchers and customers who are looking to explore how quantum algorithms will apply to their use cases.

A microwave package encloses the quantum processor. The packaging is designed to shield the qubits from environmental noise while enabling communication with the control system.

AWS releases open-source software Palace for cloud-based electromagnetics simulations of quantum computing hardware

Today, we are introducing Palace, for PArallel, LArge-scale Computational Electromagnetics, a parallel finite element code for full-wave electromagnetics simulations. Palace is used at the AWS Center for Quantum Computing to perform large-scale 3D simulations of complex electromagnetics models and enable the design of quantum computing hardware. We developed it with support for the scalability and […]

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 […]

Bernoulli line and the Bloch sphere: visualizing probability and quantum states

Introduction In recent years, quantum computers have evolved from laboratory experiments available to only a handful of scientists, to research devices that are accessible worldwide through cloud services like Amazon Braket. The impact of cloud access to quantum computers is not limited to laboratory scientists and developers as it allows educators to bring these devices […]
