Amazon seems to be going -aas on anything ... but how long can this last? Despite computing hardware evolution having slowed, it hasn't halted , and eventually robust hardware will become cheap enough for competitors to commoditize servers once again (as should be the normal)
Of course, if nothing productive materializes, they're also out nothing. Sort of a win-win for them.
The question I have is whether we'll see things like SageMaker and other higher level machine learning features use the quantum computers on the back end.
