Google has partnered with the University of California Santa Barbara to design and build a hardware for quantum computer in the field of artificial intelligence. Google has joined hands with John Martinis a professor at the University of California, Santa Barbara, because of his development approach in quantum control and quantum information processing and Google wants him to research and develop a new quantum hardware based on superconducting electronics with the aim of expanding artificial intelligence technologies.
Quantum computers could be immensely faster because of the silicon-based semiconductor chips and perform memory processing tasks than any existing computer at certain problems to deliver incredibly higher processing power. That’s because qubits working together can use the quirks of quantum mechanics to make the quantum computer technologically feasible to build and quickly discard incorrect paths to a solution, which provide an acceptable margin of error and home in on the correct one. However, qubits are tricky to operate so error correction is necessary as quantum states are so delicate.
“With an integrated hardware group the Quantum AI team will now be able to implement and test new designs” for quantum processors, testing, along the way, new theoretical knowledge in the area” Neven said, adding that “the D-Wave machine jointly owned by NASA and Google will be upgraded.”
Google co-founder Sergey Brin said, “Google hopes to one day develop 'fully reasoning' artificial intelligence. But despite its acquisition of robot, satellite, and AI firms, the real-life Skynet is still a few years off. Computer scientists have been promising AI "for decades and have not yet delivered, so it would be "foolish" for Google to put a hard date on when Google Now might become self aware.
It is also heard that Google’s D-Wave computer will be upgraded to a 1,000 qubit processor.
Brainguru Technologies, the leading SEM Company in Noida, is waiting to see how the fast quantum computer chip can utilize quantum physics to solve problems.
