Google has achieved breakthrough in quantum computing

Google announced it hs made a major breakthrough in quantum computing. the research team used an experimental quantum processor to complete a calculation in just a few minutes that would take a traditional supercomputer thousands of years.
In this case, a mathematical calculation that the largest supercomputers could not complete in under 10,000 years was done in 3 minutes 20 seconds, Google said in its paper.
The study has been published in the scientific journal Nature. Google says it has achieved quantum supremacy, which means the quantum computer did something a conventional computer could never do.

“For those of us working in science and technology, it’s the “hello world” moment we’ve been waiting for—the most meaningful milestone to date in the quest to make quantum computing a reality,” Google CEO Sundar Pichai wrote in a blog post announcing the breakthrough. “But we have a long way to go between today’s lab experiments and tomorrow’s practical applications; it will be many years before we can implement a broader set of real-world applications,” he continued.

IBM had something to say about the report, disputing that Google underestimated the conventional supercomputer.
In a technical paper and blog post, IBM took aim at potentially history-making scientific results accidentally leaked from a collaboration between Google and NASA last month. That draft paper claimed Google had reached a milestone dubbed “quantum supremacy”—a kind of drag race in which a quantum computer proves able to do something a conventional computer can’t.

Quantum computing is an advanced computing technology that is still at a relatively early stage of development.
