Imagine a system that could perform a calculation in 200 seconds that would take the world's fastest supercomputer 10,000 years to master Superiority "for the first time since the publication of the results of its work in the journal Nature.
" This dramatic increase in speed compared to all known classical algorithms is an experimental realization of quantum superiority for this specific computational task and heralds anticipated computational paradigm, "the researchers write in the abstract of the study.
The term" quantum supremacy "simply means that Google scientists were able to solve a problem with a quantum computer, the solution of which would take an overly long time normal computer.

Typical data fragments, called bits, that store information in computers can do so as 0 or 1. However, a quantum bit can both be 0 and 1 at the same time, so that an exponentially higher number of calculations can be performed.
The super-fast processing power enabled by quantum computing could usher in a new era of technological breakthroughs that humans can not even fathom in 2019.
Google has been working on this topic since at least 2006, when one of his scientists addressed the question of how quantum computers can support the company's efforts to accelerate machine learning.
"I'm curious to see what quantum computing means to the future of Google and the world Part of this optimism is based on the nature of the technology itself. You can track the progress from the mega-computers of the 1950s to the advances we are witnessing today in artificial intelligence to help people in the world "heirs of everyday life," said Sundar Pichai, CEO of Google, in a statement.
