James Whitfield Joins Amazon Web Services

Amazon Web Services (AWS) is pursuing the development of quantum computers, and enabling researchers, educators, and enterprises to use quantum computers through its Amazon Braket service. Its AWS Center for Quantum Computing recently released an architecture paper, “Building a fault-tolerant quantum computer using concatenated cat codes“, which described a new model for correcting errors in quantum computers.

James Whitfield, an assistant professor of physics at Dartmouth College, recently joined the AWS quantum computing efforts as an Amazon Visiting Academic (AVA). The AVA program is aimed at pre-tenure to newly tenured academics who seek to apply research methods to tackle complex technical challenges while continuing their university work.
