Vodafone Business collaborates with Amazon Web Services

At AWS re:Invent, Amazon Web Services (AWS) has announced several new projects including five new artificial intelligence (AI) services created to put machine learning in the hands of more application developers and end users - with no machine learning experience required, and three key initiatives as a part of the company's plans to help advance quantum computing technologies.

Verizon's chief executive Hans Vestberg said: "We are first in the world to launch Mobile Edge Compute - deeply integrating Verizon's 5G Edge platform with Wavelength to allow developers to build new categories of applications and network cloud experiences built in ways we can't even imagine yet".

Vodafone Business (LON:VOD) is collaborating with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to make AWS Wavelength available in Europe.

Quantum computing services will only be located in new data centres in the United States for now as they partner with a variety of companies like D-Wave, IonQ, and Rigetti in bringing these services to the world. "The future has arrived and you now have the opportunity to write quantum algorithms and to run them on actual quantum computers", wrote Jeff Barr in an AWS announcement. They share a partner in IonQ, but AWS is opting for D-Wave and Rigetti over Azure's Honeywell and QCI. Quantum Computing is one of the hardest fields in computing to be ever touched. However, there's no shortage of customers wanting to experiment with the power of quantum computing, Amazon observes. "They will not be used in isolation, but will be an important part of a hybrid classical/quantum solution".

Amazon Quantum Solutions Lab - A new program to connect AWS customers with quantum computing experts from Amazon and a very select set of consulting partners.

Furthering its quantum mission, the company's new AWS Center for Quantum Computingaims to bring together quantum computing experts from Amazon, the California Institute of Technology (Caltech), and other academic research institutions to work together on the research and development of new quantum computing technologies.

As to the cost of the service, Amazon notes that pricing will vary according to the hardware provider chosen, and you'll only pay for the time which you use with the quantum computer.

It is expected the lab will help all involved identify practical uses of quantum computing, and accelerating the development of quantum applications.
