Towards useful quantum computation

Todays' announcement that the Google AI team has built a quantum computer more powerful than any classical computer is an iconic moment in science. But we are already working on the next milestone: A useful quantum computation.

The Full Quantum Computing Stack

Classical computers, from calculators to the most powerful supercomputers, operate under the same rules – those of classical physics. Quantum computers operate under a different set of rules and can solve certain problems faster by exploiting quantum effects. In this post, we explain the process of solving a problem in computational chemistry.

Quantum Moore’s Law

From the invention of the transistor in 1947, technological progress in their design and manufacture has been exponential. The well-known Moore’s law observes that the number of transistors which can be squeezed onto a silicon chip doubles about every two years. Is it reasonable to expect the same from quantum computers?
