Google Calls on NASA to Help Prove Quantum Supremacy

By IQT News posted 07 Nov 2018

(TechnologyReview) Google has entered into an agreement with NASA to help it prove quantum supremacy within a matter of months according to MIT Technology Review. Quantum supremacy is the concept that a sufficiently powerful quantum computer will be able to complete certain mathematical calculations that classical supercomputers cannot perform.
The agreement, signed in July, calls on NASA to “analyze results from quantum circuits run on Google quantum processors, and … provide comparisons with classical simulation to both support Google in validating its hardware and establish a baseline for quantum supremacy.”
