Google Aims to Demonstrate Quantum Supremacy with a 50-Qubit Processor

December 11, 2017

In a paper published in Nature, Google has revealed its plans to demonstrate that quantum computers can perform a computational task beyond the capability of a classical computer, a claim known as quantum supremacy. Key in Google’s plan is building a 50-qubit processors to solve quantum sampling problems.

Google’s approach to demonstrating quantum supremacy is based on simulating coin tosses with quantum entanglement, the property of a quantum system where the quantum state of each particle cannot be described independently of the others.
