State researchers in China recently developed a quantum computing system purported to be 10 billion times faster than Google’s “Sycamore” machine. If true, this would represent a significant milestone for the field. Up front: As far as we can tell, it’s true. After a quick glance at the research paper and a...
State researchers in China recently developed a quantum computing system purported to be 10 billion times faster than Google’s “Sycamore” machine. If true, this would represent a significant milestone for the field. Up front: As far as we can tell, it’s true. After a quick glance at the research paper and a gander at the peer response it’s apparent the Chinese team’s managed to do something extraordinary here. Here’s the jargon from the paper itself: Quantum computers promises to perform certain tasks that are believed to be intractable to classical computers. Boson sampling is such a task and is considered… This story continues at The Next WebOr just read more coverage about: Google State researchers in China recently developed a quantum computing system purported to be 10 billion times faster than Google’s “Sycamore” machine.
