The search giant's new Quantum Artificial Intelligence Lab will be home to a new supercomputer from D-Wave Systems.
With its latest research, Big Blue says it's reached device performance close to the minimum requirements for implementing a "practical quantum computer." But many hurdles remain.
D-Wave Systems gets more cash, but it's still in experimental mode and continues to have some skeptics.
Researchers at Harvard and Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics make progress on scalable designs for potentially super powerful computers that harness the weird laws of quantum mechanics.
Many things in this world don't make any sense. The popularity of Miley Cyrus is one pertinent example, but some technology is so bizarre that we refuse to believe in it
