World’s first commercial quantum computer really works: Google

Washington: In what could change the era of computers, researchers from Google’s Artificial Intelligence (AI) lab have demonstrated that a controversial machine billed as “the world’s first commercial quantum computer” really works, resoundingly beating a conventional computer in a series of tests. Inside this box is a super conducting chip, cooled to within a fraction of a degree of absolute zero, that might put new power behind artificial-intelligence (AI) software. According to Google, which bought the machine along with the US space agency NASA from Canadian startup D-Wave systems in 2013, this controversial machine can use quantum physics to work through a type of math that’s crucial to artificial intelligence much faster than a conventional computer. NASA too hopes quantum computers could help schedule rocket launches and simulate future missions…
