Quantum Supremacy Is Here: The History Making Quantum Computing News We Have Been Anticipating Has Now Been Reported
Months ago we began to formulate an assessment that a history-making announcement in quantum computing was about to be made. For years the big players in quantum research, including IBM, Microsoft and Google, have been pursuing different methods of using quantum effects to do new calculations. Google had even made announcements indicating they thought they could achieve history-making results in the near term. Because of all that we had been producing a series of reports aimed at making you as informed as possible on what breakthrough announcements in quantum computing could mean for your business strategy.
Today the Financial Times issued a report based on a Google document that is 100% in keeping with what we anticipated. According to the Financial Times, the Google quantum team has had breakthroughs in performance and can now prove that their quantum computing approach has resulted in a computer that is more powerful than any of the world’s top supercomputers. Reports are that the processor in this computer uses quantum effects in a way that allows massive calculations that would take 10,000 years on the fastest IBM supercomputer to be performed in three minutes. This point, where quantum computers can be proven to outperform traditional computers, is known as quantum supremacy.
