Two years after Amazon announced the Amazon Transcribe service, a tool that automatically converts speech to text complete with natural formatting and punctuation, the company announced Amazon Transcribe Medical, a similar tool that has been optimized for clinical settings.
AWS Wavelength embeds AWS compute and storage services at the edge of telecommunications providers' 5G networks, Vodafone explained, enabling developers to serve use cases that require ultra-low latency. "Lab programs will combine hands-on educational workshops with brainstorming sessions to help customers "work backwards" from business challenges and then go step-by-step through the process of using quantum computers effectively". The company on its behalf will be providing its partners the kind of reach that would be hard otherwise. "And with our AWS Center for Quantum Computing and academic partnerships, we join the effort across the scientific and industrial communities to help accelerate the promise of quantum computing".
D-Wave also released a similar statement.
Braket is not Amazon's only initiative related to quantum computing.
To get started quickly, users have a choice of Jupyter notebooks with pre-installed developer tools, sample algorithms and tutorials.
As well as Braket, Amazon has announced its AWS Center for Computing next to the Caltech campus.
The components used in, known as Quantum bits or popularly Qubits, are used by researchers or developers to study the data and frame optimal solutions for any given problem.
Combined, the Amazon Braket and the Amazon Quantum Solutions Lab will help customers to determine where existing high performance computing can now meet their needs, begin to develop their own strategy for quantum computing, build internal expertise, and eventually deploy quantum applications.
AWS said Amazon Kendra reinvents enterprise search by allowing employees to search across multiple silos of data using real questions and deploys AI technology behind the scenes to deliver the precise answers they seek.
"With Wavelength, we bring 5G and cloud together to give our customers the powerful new capability to run cloud services consistently within a few milliseconds of mobile end-users", said Matt Garman, VP of Compute Services at AWS. Finally, its Quantum Solutions Lab will let interested parties consult with experts and learn about the technology.
