Amazon’s quantum computing service Braket has introduced a quantum circuit noise simulator named DM1

Last year we announced Amazon’s public unveiling of a new Quantum computing service named Amazon Braket and now almost nine months later, starting from May 25th, 2021, Amazon Braket has started offering their fully managed, density matrix simulator named DM1, created for the purpose of simulating quantum circuits with noise. The DM1’s goal is to help you investigate the effect of realistic noise on your quantum algorithms, also to inform you about error migration strategies and get you more accurate results of today’s quantum computing hardware. With the new DM1 simulator, you will be able to simulate up to 17 qubits and you will be able to run up to 35 simulations simultaneously, in order to accelerate your experiments. Also, for fast debugging and prototyping you can now use the local noise simulator available on the Amazon Braket SDK.

First in Quantum. IonQ is to be the first publicly traded pure-play Quantum Computing Company

In news that will excite everyone from technology enthusiasts to the investment community, the news that IonQ a creator of Quantum Computing technology using trapped Ions is headed for the public market will galvanise the quantum computing industry and possibly lead the way for the industry. As we have written previously, IonQ will hit the market via a SPAC or special purpose acquisition company. The startup IonQ has entered into a merger agreement with dMY Technology Group, Inc. III (the SPAC). The end result is that IonQ will be the first publicly traded pure-play quantum computing company.

Israel to spend $60 million to build first Quantum Computer

While Israel joining the quantum race is old knowledge, recently the country has decided to plan on spend $60 million, or 198 million shekels, to build a 30-40 qubits quantum computer. The funding will raised by the Ministry of Defence and Innovation Authority, with bids from multinational companies, Israeli businesses, and universities. The winner of this round will begin working before the end of 2021.
