Abu Dhabi’s Quantum Research Center at the Technology Innovation Institute (QRC-TII) has a new research agreement with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to explore quantum computing applications. As part of the agreement, QRC-TTI will have access to the quantum processors available on Amazon Braket and also AWS High Performance Computing (HPC) classical computing resources. AWS will provide a spending match for the next three years of all eligible projects using this service and provide workshops, classes, and other support to help QRC-TTI researchers get up to speed. AWS will also help connect local AWS enterprise customers with the TII team to help enable collaborations for end-user applications. This announcement follows a similar one made between IonQ and QRC-TII that we reported on last month. A news release provided by the Technology Innovation Institute announcing this agreement can be accessed here.
