Google Claims ‘Quantum Supremacy’ With New Processor but IBM isn’t impressed
Google on Wednesday announced they have achieved ‘Quantum Supremacy’ with its Sycamore processor. Google’s research team claim’s that the new chip developed by the company can do computation in just over 3 minutes which the world’s fastest supercomputer would have taken 10,000 years to produce a similar output.

But, Researchers at IBM said that Google was over-selling the ‘Quantum Supremacy’. They it is no that is to achieve things which can compute in just 3 minutes but others can’ t in thousands of years.

What is “Quantum Supremacy”?
Quantum supremacy is the potential ability of quantum computing devices to solve problems that classical computers practically cannot.
Big tech companies including Google, IBM, Microsoft, and Intel are avidly pursuing the technology.
Ivanka Trump Tweeted abut Google achieving quantum supremacy
It’s official! 💥 The US has achieved quantum supremacy!
In a collaboration between the Trump Admin, @Google and UC Santa Barbara, quantum computer Sycamore has completed a calculation in 3 min 20 sec that would take about 10,000 years for a classical comp. pic.twitter.com/YBv2TPCP1A

It’s a big day in quantum computing – Google has just published a paper claiming to have achieved “quantum supremacy”, the moment at which a quantum computer can perform calculations that no supercomputer can possibly match. But what does that really mean?
