(SCMP) A Chinese quantum research team is AI to crack processing time in supercomputer race. The laborious calculations which once took an hour can be completed in a fraction of a second with machine learning, according to scientists. Artificial intelligence is set to transform quantum research with a huge boost in processing speed. “This method will increase the supply of resources for quantum information processing significantly,” says Professor Li Chuanfeng, University of Science and Technology of China.
Quantum Research Team Akso Developing AI Specifically for Quantum Computer
The team is now planning to continue training the machine with a larger data set, and is also developing new artificial intelligence technology specifically for a quantum computer, which is predicted to be up to 1 trillion times faster than the most powerful supercomputer today.
Ren Changliang, associate professor with the Chongqing Institute of Green and Intelligent Technology and co-author of the paper, said the breakthrough did not mean AI had a better grasp on the world of quantum physics than the human brain.
