Seeker examines a leaked paper from Google claimed that a quantum computer demonstrated “quantum supremacy.”
But what does that mean exactly?
Quantum computers’ potential and the advantages they promise over classical computers all remain largely theoretical, and hypothetically speaking, it is predicted that quantum computers will be able to solve problems that are beyond the reach of the classical computers we use today. Passing such a threshold will be considered proof of what we call “quantum supremacy.”
