Google intends to build a quantum computer that will benefit from the biggest future global challenges.
Google developers want to build a commercial-grade quantum computer by 2029. Google CEO Sundar Pichai announced the company’s plan during the Google I / O 2021 event. In a blog post, Quantum Artificial Intelligence Chief Engineer Erik Lucero shared the company’s goal of a useful, error-corrected quantum computer in ten years.
The executives also uncovered Google’s new campus in California dedicated to quantum artificial intelligence. The campus is home to Google’s first quantum data center, hardware research labs, and the company’s own quantum processor chip manufacturing facilities.
The main benefits of quantum computing come in terms of computing power, scale, and accuracy, allowing researchers to run complex computations incredibly fast. Experts predict that quantum computing will help breakthroughs in a number of industries, including healthcare, economics, encryption, artificial intelligence, sustainability, and energy.
“Looking into the next 10 years, many of the biggest global challenges, from climate change to tackling the next pandemic, require a new kind of computing,” Lucero said. We need to better understand and design molecules to create better batteries or create fertilizers or create more targeted drugs to feed the world without generating 2 percent of global carbon emissions. This means accurately simulating nature. But you can’t simulate molecules very well using conventional computers. ” using expressions.
