Google claims ‘quantum supremacy’ for computer | BBC News 

Where the world’s best supercomputers would take 10,000 years to complete a certain task, Google’s Sycamore quantum processor can complete the same task in just 200 seconds. Scientists have been working on such computers for decades, but this is the first time that a machine has been able to work with complex problems at such high speeds. Qubits, quantum bits, can act as both 1’s and 0’s allowing several calculations to run at once. The Sycamore can contains 53 working qubits, but some worry that it is not enough to qualify it as a quantum supremacy. While this is a significant breakthrough in the way of technology, many agree that supercomputers will never reign “supreme” over classical computers.
