MIT have got a great podcast, so we thought we would share it. For those who need a little intro – Google achieved something they claim is Quantum Supremacy – that is the ability to perform a computation faster on a Quantum Computer compared to a classical machine (like the machine you are reading this on). The problem that Google solved has no real purpose other then to illustrate a proof of principle, but the known algorithm to solve the problem on a classical machine is vastly time-consuming compared to a Quantum Algorithm. Hear the debate and understand why IBM and Google are fighting.
