Amazon Launches Braket: its Quantum Cloud Computing Platform
Great news for the quantum computing industry. Amazon just went into production with its Braket quantum computing platform which will operate on Amazon Web services as a cloud-based service. Amazon would like this to be a launchpad for people to explore quantum computing. Amazon is partnered with various quantum computer providers as Braket relies on a hybrid/classical approach. So far they are using IonQ, Rigetti, and D-wave. Amazon will squarely compete now with IBM Q and Microsoft's Azure Quantum.
