Google and NASA have teamed up and they came up with the world’s first quantum computer. Jump over the break to get a peek at the early days of the Quantum AI Lab: a partnership between NASA, Google, and a 512-qubit D-Wave Two quantum computer.
Last May, in partnership with NASA, we announced the Quantum A.I. Lab, a place where researchers from around the world can experiment with the incredible powers and possibilities of quantum computing.
We’re still in the early, early days, but we think quantum computing can help solve some of the world’s most challenging computer science problems. We’re particularly interested in how quantum computing can advance machine learning, which can then be applied to virtually any field: from finding the cure for a disease to understanding changes in our climate.
As the team began working together this past summer, we decided to shoot some footage and put together a short video that provides a peek behind the scenes and introduces a few of quantum computing’s mind-bending, strange, and undeniably awesome concepts.
