IBM questions Google quantum computing claims
IBM has publicly called out Google's claim that it reached quantum supremacy.Quantum supremacy is a concept which was originally put forth by Caltech professor John Preskill and in order to reach it, a company would need to demonstrate that a quantum computer could do something that today's classical computers cannot.
Amazon Web Services ( AWS ) has announced three quantum computing services that'll bring the super supercomputer within everyday reach, as Quantum computing , which can simultaneously evaluate multiple possibilities, will likely be used for physics and chemistry simulations that aren't

that'll bring the super supercomputer within everyday reach, as reported earlier Monday by CNET sister site ZDNet. Unveiled during its annual AWS re:Invent conference, the tech giant announced .
AWS noted in an announcement Monday morning that it had previously joked 10 years ago about launching the Quantum Compute Cloud -- but now it's becoming a reality.
Google says it's achieved quantum supremacy
Google is standing by its claim that it's achieved quantum supremacy -- marking a major milestone in computing research. The company first made the claim back in September, and while disputed by competitors, Google's research paper has now been published in the scientific journal Nature. Quantum supremacy is a big deal, because it encapsulates the ability of quantum computers to solve problems that current technology couldn't even begin toQuantum supremacy is a big deal, because it encapsulates the ability of quantum computers to solve problems that current technology couldn't even begin to attempt.
Amazon Web Services has, for the first time, hinted at its interest in offering quantum computing to customers. The indication was given in a blog post praising the Quantum computing will “increase the speed at which our customers can process complex scientific data in the cloud , which will enable
The quantum computing service is called Braket, after a notation used in quantum physics, and also includes quantum programming and simulation tools. Amazon is not the first to launch a quantum cloud service either. IBM has offered access to its own quantum hardware over the internet since
The Amazon Braket service will allow developers, researchers and scientists to experiment with quantum computers from providers like , and . "You can build and test your circuits in a simulated environment and then run them on an actual quantum computer," AWS said.
The AWS Center for Quantum Computing is a new research center at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech). The company is hoping researchers and scientists will use the center to make "scientific and technological breakthroughs", including the possibility of mass producing quantum computers.
Lastly, the Amazon Quantum Solutions Lab will give access to quantum experts from Amazon to AWS customers.
Explainer: Google hails 'quantum supremacy', but don't chuck out your PC just yet
Explainer: Google hails 'quantum supremacy', but don't chuck out your PC just yetGiven the task of finding a pattern in a seemingly random series of numbers, Google's quantum computer produced an answer in 3 minutes and 20 seconds. It estimates that the Summit supercomputer https://www.ibm.com/thought-leadership/summit-supercomputer at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee would take 10,000 years to complete the task.

Cloud -based quantum computing is the invocation of quantum emulators, simulators or processors through the cloud . Increasingly, cloud services are being looked on as the method for providing
, which can simultaneously evaluate multiple possibilities, will simulations that aren't possible with classical computers, which can't simulate complex chemicals. They could also create new drugs and solar panels, help develop and , and even manage investment portfolios.
Besides D-Wave, IonQ and Rigetti, tech giants , , , and are also working on quantum computing. IBM and Rigetti already offer cloud access to their quantum computers, while Google plans the same within a year. With quantum computers expensive and difficult to build and run, it's unsurprising that more quantum via cloud services are being announced.

What is AWS Outposts? .
Migrating to the cloud can be a challenge, but AWS Outposts aims to make it easier to move critical applications to the cloud more cheaply than managing your own hardware.For those who demand low-latency performance for massive data projects, there is nothing quite like a hybrid cloud computing environment. This “best of both worlds” approach means you can run low-latency apps in your own data center or on local servers (or in a co-location center), and yet the on-premise IT infrastructure connects seamlessly to the cloud. This allows you to scale easily and take advantage of a flexible cost structure in the cloud.
