Google has developed a quantum computing chip that will easily outperform even modern computers in terms of speed. Gagool has named it Quantum Superimacy. Google said that this new chip will take only 200 seconds to do the work that the world’s fastest supercomputer takes 10 thousand years to do. Google CEO Sundar Pichai described the new chip as a major achievement.
If Google’s claim is proved to be true then this search will completely change the world of computing.
The first report of Google’s ‘Quantum Supremacy’ was published by the Financial Times last month. On Wednesday, Google published a new article in the popular scientific journal Nature. In this, Google revealed that it has created a new 54 qubit processor, named Sycamore.
Google has said that the company has worked hard to achieve this milestone and after almost two decades it has been successful. Sightinst had been working on it since 1980.
Very proud that our @GoogleAI team has achieved a big breakthrough in quantum computing known as quantum supremacy after over a decade of work, as published in @Nature. Thank you to our collaborators in the research community who helped make this possible.https: //t.co/yZUUbZsyA0

IBM has tried to disprove this claim by Google. IBM has said that it is not what Google claimed that it would take 10,000 years for a supercomputer to do this particular type of calculation. Because super computers can perform this task in just 2.5 days.
Commenting on the discovery, computer researcher William Oliver of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology said, “Quantum superiority over traditional algorithms (algorithm) is a major achievement in the world’s top supercomputers.”
Google CEO Sundar Pichai on Wednesday tweeted that I am proud of this great achievement of the team.
It is noteworthy that quantum computations will have immediate use in encrypted software and artificial intelligence, but will help in making more efficient solar panels, pharmaceuticals and faster financial transactions.
