from Google’s AI Lab say a controversial quantum machine
that it and NASA have been testing since 2013 resoundingly
beat a conventional computer in a series of tests.
Inside this box is a superconducting chip, cooled to within
a fraction of a degree of absolute zero, that might put new
power behind artificial-intelligence software. Google says
it has proof that a controversial machine it bought in 2013
really can use quantum physics to work through a type of
math that’s crucial to artificial intelligence much faster
than a conventional computer.
