# Quantum Of Tuesday: Google Quantum AI's Paper, Whereabouts Known

via **Bianca Bharti** - writing for **Canada's** **National Post**, comes **news** of **Google, Inc's** (**Nasdaq**: **GOOGL**) stunning accomplishment in quantum computation. Described in a paper entitled '**Quantum supremacy using a programmable superconducting processor**' and published at **NASA** (since taken down, but, available **here**, along with a bibliography document entitled '**Google Quantum Supremacy (Supplementary information) 09-2019**' **here**.). Read it and weep for the quantum advertising onslaught from **Serge** and **Larry** coupled with the **complete demise** of your future self's **privacy** in all **alternate universes**...

"The tantalizing promise of quantum computers is that certain computational tasks might be executed exponentially faster on a quantum processor than on a classical processor. A fundamen- tal challenge is to build a high-fidelity processor capable of running quantum algorithms in an exponentially large computational space. Here, we report using a processor with programmable superconducting qubits to create quantum states on 53 qubits, occupying a state space 253 ∼ 1016. Measurements from repeated experiments sample the corresponding probability distribution, which we verify using classical simulations. While our processor takes about 200 seconds to sample one instance of the quantum circuit 1 million times, a state-of-the-art supercomputer would require approximately 10,000 years to perform the equivalent task. This dramatic speedup relative to all known classical algorithms provides an experimental realization of quantum supremacy on a com- putational task and heralds the advent of a much-anticipated computing paradigm." - via the
