Commercially viable quantum computing could be here sooner than you think, thanks to a new innovation that shrinks quantum tech down onto a chip: a cryochip.

Seeker explains:

It seems like quantum computers will likely be a big part of our computing future—but getting them to do anything super useful has been famously difficult. Lots of new technologies are aiming to get commercially viable quantum computing here just a little bit faster, including one innovation that shrinks quantum technology down onto a chip.

Could Quantum AI help you live to 200?

Google’s quantum supremacy news opens exciting doors.

A quantum computer completed a task in 200 seconds that would take 10,000 years on today’s fastest supercomputer.

This video narrated by Stephen Fry, explores the special connection between quantum computers and AI. Together, they will change everything.

In this nature video explains Google’s recent announcement on reaching a major quantum computing milestone.

Google says they have reached ‘quantum supremacy’ with their quantum computer ‘Sycamore’. Nature reporter Elizabeth Gibney explains what this means, why IBM disagree, and the significance for quantum computing.

Google has decided to fess up about their recent advancement in quantum supremacy.

We’re marking a major milestone in quantum computing research that opens up new possibilities for this technology. Learn how the Google AI Quantum team demonstrated how a quantum computer can perform a task no classical computer can in an experiment called “quantum supremacy.”

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.”
