Google’s Bristlecone Quantum Computing Chip Achieves 72 Qubits
Published in Supercomputing/Simulations/Calculations.
When a quantum computer is finally able to calculate operations faster than the most powerful supercomputers currently in existence, it will achieve what is known as “quantum supremacy”. Google Quantum AI Lab revealed a new gate-based superconducting quantum computing chip called Bristlecone last week with a square array of 72 qubits (a portmanteau for quantum bits). They are going for quantum supremacy, but they may be a few qubits short.
