Quantum computing stands to change the face of all manner of computing. It has been an elusive target for a while, but is becoming more practical as we speak. This announcement by Google contains amazing promises and feats of quantum computing breakthroughs. This experiment will take a while to properly evaluate and verify, but could be a distinct game changer in how calculations are performed and data is delivered to us.
The era of practical quantum computers has begun — at least on one speed test showing “quantum supremacy.”
