Google To Develop Revolutionary Quantum Information Processors

Google To Develop Revolutionary Quantum Information Processors

Google was reported to be collaborating with the University of California Santa Barbara to develop and design revolutionary quantum information processors. Google’s Quantum Artificial Intelligence team has partnered up with a team from UCSB headed by John Martinis for this venture.

In a blog post by Hartmut Neven, the director of engineering at Google, Martinis and his team have made great stride in this project. For his pioneering advances in the field of quantum processing, Martinis was awarded the London Prize recently.

In an interview with Wall Street Journal, Martinis have confirmed that he will be working for both Google and UCSB as a joint employee. Others from his team have reportedly joined the internet giant as well.

According to Neven, the Quantum Artificial Intelligence team will be able to test and implement new designs such as quantum optimization and inference processors now that they have an integrated hardware group. The lab ultimately seeks to speed up computation on a ginormous scale, allowing for better commercial applications by consumers and researchers alike.

Launched in May 2013, the Google Quantum Artificial Intelligence lab is a joint collaboration between the search giant, the Ames Research Center of NASA and the Universities Space Research Association.

Despite this new collaborative effort, Google will still continue its collaboration with scientists working on D-Wave and also the experiments on the "Vesuvius" machine built by NASA.

Sergey Brin, a co-founder of Google said in July that he hopes that a fully self-reasoning artificial intelligence will be developed one day.
