Google has claimed the mantle of ‘quantum supremacy' after its 53-bit quantum computer named Sycamore took just 200 seconds to perform a calculation that would have taken the world's top supercomputer 10,000 years to crack.
The tech giant made the initial claim back in September, which was fiercely disputed by competitors, but now the company has shown its hand by publishing its research in the journal Nature and on its own blog on Wednesday.

Google scientists have claimed a massive breakthrough in cutting-edge computing with 'quantum supremacy'

1 month ago   |   By Business Insider

Google scientists have claimed a major breakthrough in superfast computing after running an experiment which appears to demonstrate just how much faster quantum computers would be compared to classical ones.
Quantum computing is complicated, but based on the idea that computers can incorporate aspects of quantum theory. In theory, computational tasks can be carried out exponentially faster by quantum computers than by classical computers. This is known as quantum supremacy.
Google's scientists tested a 54-qubit processor named Sycamore, and it performed a target computation in 200 seconds...
