Google Teams With D-Wave in Massive Quantum Computing Leap, Cracking Simulation Problem

“…In collaboration with scientists at Google, demonstrating a computational performance advantage, increasing with both simulation size and problem hardness, to over 3 million times that of corresponding classical methods. In a press release, D-Wave says its quantum device has far outpaced a classical computer in a direct competition to complete a difficult computational problem. Notably, this work was achieved on a practical application with real-world implications, simulating the topological phenomena behind the 2016 Nobel Prize in Physics.” ADVERTISEMENT The device successfully modeled the behavior of a spinning two-dimensional “quantum magnet,” and was able to complete the simulation at breakneck speed. Ripple CTO Davis Schwartz, says he believes developers have about eight years to develop quantum-proof methods to keep digital infrastructures secure.
