Google Reports Progress on a Shortcut to Quantum Supremacy

Google Reports Progress on a Shortcut to Quantum Supremacy Quantum computers could be closer than we thought, thanks to new steps toward an easier way to build them. A computer that uses the quirks of quantum physics to work on data should be capable of things far beyond any machine in use today. Governments and large tech companies have spent huge sums trying to prove out that idea. Yet quantum computers have sometimes seemed like one of those technologies that are always 20 years away. Recently some leading research groups have come to think they can see a path to shortening that time considerably. Yesterday Google and researchers from the University of the Basque Country in Bilbao, Spain, published results that could lead to a shortcut to the long-awaited first conclusive demonstration…
