This is a reasonable take. Consider that IBM, Microsoft, and Google - the credible cloud competitors to AWS - all have their own in-house QC efforts. AWS is outsourcing theirs... they make it sound like it's going to be a marketplace model, but you're right, if/once the profit motive is in place they'll snap up the supplier.

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.
