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, […]

Working with PennyLane for variational quantum algorithms and quantum machine learning

The field of quantum computing today resembles the state of machine learning a few decades ago – in many ways. Near-term quantum algorithms for optimization, computational chemistry, and other applications are based on the very same principles that are used to train a neural network. In machine learning, there was no theoretical proof that a […]
