Google achieved the ‘quantum supremacy’ with its Sycamore

According to them, the calculation that Google had carried out by the quantum computer is not that special at all.

It has the ability to complete complex calculations that would take traditional computers millions of years to complete, in an instant.

Simply put, these bits represent "yes" and "no", or "on" and "off" data.

"It means nothing because Google's quantum breakthrough is for a primitive type of quantum computing", said blockchain developer Peter Todd on Twitter. In combination, bits can be used to handle logical tasks.

With the right outcome of Quantum computing, gives us a chance to not only achieve many practical use cases but also help us to make the world better in a way that we can not do just with classical computers alone. In the jargon, this is called superposition. Quantum computing is still very much experimental.

Another property of sub-atomic particles is for them to become "entangled" - meaning that they can influence each other's behaviour in an observable way. This is called a qubit, and each additional qubit can lead to exponential increases in computing power.

Yesterday, Google announced that its 54-qubit Sycamore processor pulled off a rather complicated mathematical calculation in just 200 seconds. In the experiment only 53 could be made to work - still enough to produce a successful result. "It has taken almost 25 years and very intensive investments of effort and money to get to the stage we are at now in the field".

However, Post Malone opposes the repercussions that have been put in place for those who fail to wear face coverings in public. And I was looking out the window with my cousin and it's just a light that just stays there and then just f***kin' goes off.

Physicists have been talking about quantum computing for over 30 years, but the challenges of making them work are daunting. It has manufactured a handful of chips with 54 "qubits", vastly more powerful than the standard 64-bit chip in many consumer devices.

Even as Ivanka praised the parties involved in this new quantum computing achievement, a number of social media users appeared critical of her assessment of the Trump administration's role in this endeavour.

IBM and Google have always been in the race to make a breakthrough in the nascent but exciting field of quantum computing.

Sceptics also argue that Google has only solved a very narrow task, and that quantum computing is still a long way away from practical use.

Either way, the worries that quantum computers will soon break Bitcoin, blockchain, the internet and everything else worth loving in the world may be overheated, at least in the short-term. The US has achieved quantum supremacy! They admit, though, that still-greater accuracy will be needed to bring those use cases into the real world.

Cryptographers are, meanwhile, already preparing for the day when quantum computers might be used to crack the codes used, for example, to secure online access to bank accounts. It also said Google risked misleading the public by implying the new-style computers would replace existing ones.

Regardless of which of the two tech heavyweights ultimately prevails in the race towards quantum supremacy, it is not time yet for you to ditch your good-old classical computer. "The United States has taken a great leap forward in quantum computing", said U.S. chief technology officer Michael Kratsios on Wednesday. It's unclear if this has to do with Google's quantum supremacy claim, which first leaked last month, or with Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook's plans for its own "Libra" currency getting grilled in Congressional hearings.
