Google Partners With UCSB To Build Quantum Processors For Artificial Intelligence

Via @TechCrunch. #Quantum anything ROCKS!


Google today announced that it is expanding its research around quantum computing and that it has hired UC Santa Barbara’s (UCSB) John Martinis and his team — one of the most prolific research groups in this area — to work on new quantum processors based on superconducting electronics. Researchers in Martinis’ lab were among the first to use this technique back in 2008.

Google has long shown an interest in quantum computing. It was one of the first companies to buy one of D-Wave’s quantum computers, for example, even when it was still unclear how (or even if) D-Wave’s processor worked. Since 2013, Google has also been working on quantum computing research with NASA and the Universities Space Research Association as part of its Quantum Artificial Intelligence Lab.

Now, Google is going beyond using other people’s hardware. “With an integrated hardware group, the Quantum AI team at Google…
