Google claimed on Wednesday that it has successfully achieved “Quantum Supremacy,” which allows new generations of computers to calculate on a speed that is nearly inconvincible with modern technology. The research was published in the prestigious Nature science journal, according to Google’s research lab in Santa Barbara, Calif, their scientists had done groundbreaking research, which enables the computers to perform the tasks on an unbelievable speed.
The quantum computer processor (QP) is being one of the most desirable inventions of today’s scientists. A classical computer processor (CP), which works based on binary language, the language of 0 & 1, the language of high and low. The transistors are the base upon which the CP work; the higher the number of transistors, the greater will be the processing ability. But the dream of QP will work on the laws of quantum mechanics. The concern will be upon the spin of electrons with two states spin up and spin down.
Ultimately, we will be again dealing with 0 and 1, but it will be quantum mechanically having marvelous features. Quantum computers can attain two states of 0 and 1 simultaneously due to the principle of superposition which converted it more powerful than ever. A step closer, the dream is accomplished or not, it is hard to say at this time. In their research lab at Santa Barbara, Calif, they claim that a mathematical calculation that the largest supercomputers could not perform within 10,000 years, has accomplished in 3 minutes 20 seconds, only.
Scientists have been working on this project since 1980. Around 40 years of hard work and dedication, finally, Google has made this announcement today, on 23rd October 2019, which shows that nothing is impossible if one sets his goals and then dedicate his all potential to this accomplish this task.
