The Amazon Braket announcement is an interesting one for #quantumcomputing on multiple levels.

First, Amazon is not providing a hosted service, but is serving more as an aggregator of technology approaches while working on being an application developer layer. #reInvent
This approach of supporting @dwavesys @IonQ_Inc & @rigetti are three different approaches: quantum annealing, trapped ion, and full stack on a quantum coprocessor, respectively.

These are very different approaches to #quantumcomputing.

Abstracting all of these approaches on Jupyter seems like a bit of a "figure it out yourself" approach rather than actively pushing the #quantumcomputing era forward.

For me, the most interesting of these three from an Amazon perspective is @IonQ_Inc, which is already the back end for @Azure's quantum cloud & has an ex-Amazon exec in charge, Peter Chapman.

#reinvent #quantumcomputing
It's hard to ignore @dwavesys and its practical #quantumcomputing approach, but its quantum annealing isn't necessarily one that translates to other quantum platforms.

It will be interesting to see if @awscloud access ends up increasing D-Wave's market share.

And with @rigetti, I wonder if this will be a step towards allowing them to focus more on core quantum technology and development tools to bridge quantum-digital computing divides as Amazon serves as more of a front-end for the quantum stack.

#reInvent #reInvent2019
Amazon's quantum announcement right on the heels of @Azure Quantum last month now makes #quantumcomputing development more accessible to the masses.…

But it still seems like the large companies, other than @IBM, are still reticent to commit to building #quantumcomputing communities. IBM still has a big headstart here in having a hosted developer environment.

It's still very early days with no dominant approach.
