Google’s new quantum computer is ‘100 million times faster than your PC’

Google’s D-Wave quantum computer is pretty fast Photo: YouTube Has Google won the race to build the world’s first commercial quantum computer? The technology company’s artificial intelligence lab believe they may finally have proof that their opinion-dividing quantum computer actually works. Google and Nasa announced they were collaborating on the D-Wave X2 quantum computer, which they say is 100 million times faster than a conventional computer chip, in 2013. It can answer certain algorithms in seconds rather than years. Google director of engineering, Hartmut Neven, said: “For a specific, carefully crafted proof-of-concept problem we achieve a 100-million-fold speed-up.” Quantum computers are able to multi-task efficiently and at great speed  Photo: (c) Jorg Greuel In a blog post he added: “We found that for problem instances involving nearly 1,000 binary variables, quantum…
