Researchers at the Amazon Web Services Inc.-led AWS Center for Quantum Computing have published what they say is their first architecture paper today, describing a theoretical blueprint for a fault-tolerant quantum computer. The paper proposes an entirely new and apparently workable approach to the problem of “quantum error correction,” which is a key challenge that must be overcome in order to devise a working quantum computer that can live up to its full potential. The problem with quantum computers is that they’re incredibly fragile machines. Their potential comes from the fact they use “qubits” to perform computations, rather than the “bits” found in traditional computers. Whereas bits can hold a state of 0 or 1, qubits can be a 0, a 1 or both states at the same time. It’s this property that allows otherwise impossible...

Amazon’s cloud division has become one of its most important profit drivers, posting $11.6 billion in sales in the quarter that ended Sept. 30, up 29% from a year earlier. (Photo: Mike Scarcella/ALM) Amazon is one company that has thrived during the pandemic. Now it is paying it forward by helping 29 million people worldwide retrain for cloud-computing jobs by 2025, the Wall Street Journal reported. The company committed $700 million last year to reskilling 100,000 of its own workers in the United States. The new effort will build on existing programs and include new ones in partnership with nonprofits, schools and others.
