Google and NASA unveil new ice cold quantum computer

Google is pumping yet more power into its quantum computer lab through a new computer that operates at a temperature colder than outer space. First reported by The Verge, the new D-Wave 2X quantum processor will be added to the Quantum Artificial Intelligence Lab as part of a multi-year agreement signed by Google, NASA and the Universities Research Association that own the Quantum AI Lab. “Working with the D-Wave processors has helped us develop and fine-tune models of quantum annealing,” Google’s Hartmut Neven, head of the Quantum Artificial Intelligence Lab, said in a statement. “We look forward to the continued advancements coming from each generation of D-Wave systems.” What is D-Wave? D-Wave 2X is a quantum processor that was released early this year and possesses 1,000 qubits, as such being…
