Google’s Quantum Computing Project Shows Promise

Quantum computing is based around the premise that computers will use individual atoms and molecules in order to process instructions and use memory. Moore’s Law states that the number of transistors on a microprocessor doubles every eighteen months, which if we extrapolate forwards, means that somewhere between the year 2020 and 2030, the circuits on a typical microprocessor will be measured on the atomic scale. From here, the next step is to create quantum computers, which have the potential to be significantly quicker at certain types of calculation compared with conventional computers. Given Google’s propensity to research and develop emerging technologies, it should be no surprise to discover that Google have a Quantum AI (Artificial Intelligence) team, working towards understanding the physics that will govern quantum annealers. The reason why…
