(InsideHPC) Quantum startup IONQ released the results of two rigorous real-world tests that indicate its quantum computer can solve significantly more complex problems with greater accuracy than results published for any other quantum computer.
The benchmarks released today, using the Bernstein-Vazirani algorithm and the Hidden Shift algorithm, each ask a computer to find a hidden number out of a set of possible numbers. For each algorithm, IonQ has solved for all possible 1024 hidden numbers with their 11-qubit machine, a more difficult task than has been attempted before on a quantum computer.
