Google researchers say they have broken through the milestone, that could change the course of computing history.
According to it new research published in the journal Nature, google researchers state that the have made a significant break through in discovery called “QUANTUM COMPUTER“.
Google claims that its advanced computer has achieved “quantum supremacy” for the first time, surpassing the performance of conventional devices.
While going further the explain that their computer, known as Sycamore, is able to conduct a task in 200 seconds that would take around 10,000 years on a traditional system.
“This dramatic increase in speed compared to all known classical algorithms is an experimental realisation of quantum supremacy for this specific computational task, heralding a much-anticipated computing paradigm,” the researchers write in the paper.
Quantum computers are theoretically capable of doing work much quicker than the computers we use today.
However, IBM researchers have already criticised Google’s claims of a breakthrough, suggesting that the new discovery is not as profound as promised.
Google now hopes to build a system that can conduct more broad operations, which could be used across a variety of different fields.
