Did Google Just Achieve ‘Quantum Supremacy’?

Quantum computers are on the horizon, and they’ve been stuck there for quite some time. All the theoretical advantages they promise over classical computers, like speeding up drug development, helping to manufacture room temperature superconductors, and cracking encryption remain just that: theoretical. However, a leaked...

Quantum supremacy: A three minute guide

Google claims it has reached a key milestone: using a quantum computer to complete a task that a classical computer couldn’t manage, achieving what they call ‘quantum supremacy’. This would be the first time that a quantum computer has definitively beaten the best conventional computer....
