Google Taps UCSB Team For Quantum Processors

Internet giant Google said late Tuesday that it has tapped a research team from UC Santa Barbara, to help build new, new quantum information processors based on superconducting electronics. those processors are being applied to design of artificial intelligence at Google. Google said that John Martinis and his team at UC Santa Barbara is helping in the hardware initiative with the company. Financial details of the deal were not disclosed. Quantum computers are expected to allow for much faster computation of certain algorithms than current computers built on transistors.
