Amazon Web Services’ quantum computing service, Amazon Braket, is partnering with next-generation digital services consulting firm Infosys to develop quantum computing capabilities for its Infosys Cobalt cloud offerings. 

Amazon Braket provides the technology and research for scientists and developers to build quantum algorithms, test them on circuit simulators, run them on different quantum computers and then analyze their results. Infosys will be able to take these same steps to experiment and test any computational issues within the quantum applications and hardware technologies they are developing. Together, they are touting their mutual goal of further unleashing quantum computing’s potential.

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, quantum computers consist of quantum bits, or “qubits.” These qubits play a similar role to the bits in today’s digital computers. However, the laws of quantum mechanics allow qubits to encode exponentially more information than bits. By manipulating information stored in these qubits, scientists can quickly produce high-quality solutions to difficult problems. Scientists have demonstrated these quantum speedups in several applications, including database searches. 

“Quantum Computing is an area of intense research, and a number of businesses around the world are asking about its timeline and the opportunities that it could open. At this stage, it’s important to be aware and evaluate the potential future impact of quantum computing,” stated Matt Garman, senior vice president of Sales and Marketing at AWS. 

Infosys is already using Amazon Braket through its Center for Emerging Technology Solutions, a next-generation services and offerings incubator, for the development of use cases in the optimization of vehicle routes, fraud detection and other areas.

“Through our use of AWS in this space, we are bringing together the power of Amazon Braket and Infosys Cobalt to help enterprises build quantum computing capabilities and use cases to accelerate their cloud-powered transformation,” said Infosys President Ravi Kumar, noting the expansion of use cases in logistics, finance, energy and telecom sectors.
