It’s Official: Google Claims to Have Achieved Quantum Supremacy

It’s Official: Google Claims to Have Achieved Quantum Supremacy | GLOBAL TECHNOLOGY XYZ | Scoop.it
And that brings us to today, when Google officially published the paper in the prestigious journal Nature. In it, Google claims its Sycamore quantum computer has completed a random number generation-related calculation in just 200 seconds — a task that would take the world’s most powerful supercomputer 10,000 years, according to the tech giant.
Al Cannistra's insight:

10,000 years in 200 seconds....    It's official now says Google....

and I still want Quantum on my desktop

Quantum supremacy might be here, upending conventional encryption

Quantum supremacy might be here, upending conventional encryption | GLOBAL TECHNOLOGY XYZ | Scoop.it
Last week Google posted and quickly took down a report announcing a stunning quantum computing milestone. Regardless of whether the report was premature, conventional encryption’s days are numbered.

IBM makes 20 qubit quantum computing machine available as a cloud service

IBM makes 20 qubit quantum computing machine available as a cloud service | GLOBAL TECHNOLOGY XYZ | Scoop.it
Quantum computing is a difficult area of technology to understand. Instead of being built on machines interpreting zeroes and ones in on/off states, quantum computers can live in multiple states. This creates all kinds of new programming possibilities and requires new software and systems to build programs that can work with this way of computing.
Al Cannistra's insight:

we are going to need a new generation just to understand how to use these things - unless - maybe they can build them to understand us humans!
