AWS is experimenting with a chip that can solve key quantum computing problems.

Peter Desantis, general manager of AWS EC2, announced during a re:Invent keynote that the new chip helps figure out how to correct errors — like flipping a binary code from a 1 to a 0 — that occasionally pop up when working with quantum computing queries. If quantum computing errors are mitigated, it could pave the way for more usable quantum computing, Desantis said.

“We are still in the very early stages, but this chip represents an important step in error correction for quantum computing.”
