Google gets into quantum computing

GoogleSearch giant Google has entered into an agreement with quantum computing company D-Wave in a move that will give it access to processors based on the technology as soon as they come into being.

Quantum computing is, so far, only in its early stages, and is based on the potential power of sub atomic particles to deliver super fast computing speeds.

According to Bloomberg, Google will have access to quantum processors. It already has its own division concentrating on hardware research using the technology.

Universities in the USA are also working on the technology and apparently IBM and Microsoft have their own divisons working on research.

Last month, D-Wave systems announced general availability of the 2X computing system and claims a 15 times advantage over other computing systems.

D-Waves system operates at temperatures near to absolute zero and has 128,000 tunnel junctions.
