Chinese team designs 62 qubit quantum processor with worlds largest number
Photo: WeiboA Chinese research team has successfully designed a 62-qubit programmable superconducting quantum processor, naming it Zu Chongzhi after the noted 5th century Chinese mathematician and astronomer. The computer contains the largest number of superconducting qubits so far in the world, and achieved two-dimensional programmable quantum walks on the system, a major milestone in the field. Experts said the study pushes the possibility of universal quantum computing through a two-dimensional quantum walk a big step forward.  The study was conducted by a research team from the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC), and was published Friday in Science magazine, one of the top academic journals in the world.The team designed and produced an 8x8 two-dimensional square superconducting qubit array composed of 62 functional qubits...

Google Won The Largest Cloud Computing Contract Worth Of 1
Google and Spanish-language content and media company Univision today reached a new multi-year strategic partnership. According to the agreement, Google will promote the growth of Univision’s media and content portfolio and help it become a media company of the future. And Google’s cloud computing will have a key role in this. According to the cooperation agreement, Google Cloud will help promote Univision’s digital transformation, deepen Univision’s relationship with Hispanic audiences and communities, and enable it to continue to create “market-leading” content for the next generation of Spanish-speaking audiences. “If I want to buy a car, I don’t want to go buy four wheels and a steering wheel and an engine and doors and try and figure out how to put that together,” Univision Chief Executive Wade Davis said.
