Google is opening a new research lab to see if a quantum computer can solve problems too taxing for traditional computers.
Hosted by NASA's Ames Research Center, the new Quantum Artificial Intelligence Lab will be home to a quantum computer made by D-Wave Systems. Operated by the Universities Space Research Association, the supercomputer will be available to researchers around the world to work on their own projects.
The goal, as stated in a Google blog posted today, is "to study how quantum computing might advance machine learning."
Traditional computers are limited, as they think in terms of … Read more
