At the AWS Center for Quantum Computing, we are doing scientific research and development on quantum computing algorithms and hardware. This post summarizes findings from our first architecture paper that describes a theoretical blueprint for a fault-tolerant quantum computer that features a novel approach to quantum error correction QEC. Fair warning, this post dives somewhat deep into a few of the scientific details of building larger and more useful quantum computers. The level of the material is aimed at technical or science staff in the quantum computing industry and graduate-level or higher students and researchers in quantum computing. If you want to go deeper still after reading this blog post, please read the paper. Quantum algorithms have the potential to solve practical problems in a range of areas, such as designing new materials, discovering new medicines and chemical catalysts, and optimizing logistics processes and financial portfolios.

Quantum computer architectures: A survey Abstract: Computers reduce human effort and also focus on increasing the performance to push the technology forward. Many approaches have been devised to increase the performance of the computers. One such way is to reduce the size of the transistors used in the systems. Another very significant tactic is to use quantum computers.

The quantum race is already underway. Governments and private investors all around the world are pouring billions of dollars into quantum research and development. Satellite-based quantum key distribution for encryption has been demonstrated, laying the groundwork for a potential quantum security-based global communication network. IBM , Google , Microsoft , Amazon , and other companies are investing heavily in developing large-scale quantum computing hardware and software. Nobody is quite there yet.
Quantum Computing merges two great scientific revolutions of the 20th century: computer science and quantum physics. Quantum physics is the theoretical basis of the transistor, the laser, and other technologies which enabled the computing revolution. But on the algorithmic level, today's computing machinery still operates on ""classical"" Boolean logic. Quantum Computing is the design of hardware and software that replaces Boolean logic by quantum law at the algorithmic level. For certain computations such as optimization, sampling, search or quantum simulation this promises dramatic speedups.
