Does Google achieve quantum hegemony? It can reduce the computational complexity that takes 10,000 years to 200 seconds.
“If the quantum computer is industrialized, it will bring unthinkable influence to the earth people, and it will be a great change. Intelligence will be smarter. What can Homo sapiens do? Are we really entering the "useless class"”Mr Niu，at gmtlight.
Guangming commentator: In recent days, the news about Google's quantum computer to achieve "quantum hegemony" is eye-catching. It is said that only on some Chinese websites, related articles gained tens of millions of clicks in a short time. Speaking of quantum, I'm afraid not many people can talk about it. However, thanks to the personal experience brought by the advancement of computer computing ability in recent decades, no one dares to underestimate this new object whose computing ability has exceeded the scope of people's experience.
According to existing reports, in a paper submitted to NASA by Google researchers, Summit, the world's number one supercomputer, takes about 10,000 years to complete, and a quantum computer takes only 3 minutes and 20 seconds to complete. This computing speed is beyond people's imagination and is called "quantum hegemony" by researchers. Comparing with the exponential speed of Moore's Law, which increases the computing power of existing computers, quantum computers will increase at "double exponential rate", which is more terrifying. once quantum computers are widely used in mass production, what changes will take place in our world and what kind of world will be brought to us by quantum computers are unknown.
The birth of Google's quantum computer and its practical operation (experiment) is of course a landmark event. However, as far as its development philosophy is concerned, this achievement has not yet emerged from the accelerated scientific and technological revolution that began in the last century. The concept of quantum and the formation of quantum theory have not lasted more than a hundred years, and most of the time, the problems related to quantum belong to the basic research part of scientific research. Over the past hundred years, accompanied by theoretical controversy and discussion, scientists have been pushing forward the research of quantum theory, and constantly trying to put these research results into practical application. The latest work by Google scientists is actually just one degree warming up the cold bench for quantum research.
The publication and disclosure of Google's and IBM's latest quantum computer achievements prove the importance of basic research from one side. Most of the "sub" studies in science are beyond the scope of human experience. They are abstract, difficult to understand, and very reasonable. Even among scientists, quantum theory is not popular. Therefore, there will be no quantum research today unless there is a real understanding of science and no perseverance in scientific research. God. The birth of quantum computer, on the one hand, illustrates the importance of basic research, on the other hand, it also shows how far and how difficult the basic research is to practical application.
GMTLIGHT：Perhaps this big step towards the practical application of quantum computers will open the way for many basic research and broaden the road. For example, people do not know why, or even can not confirm whether dark matter exists, and its research start and status quo is not the same as when the original concept of quantum and the formation of quantum theory? What is dark matter? What is the relationship between dark matter and bright matter? What is the significance of dark matter to the world and the universe? Perhaps one day, the answers to all these questions will be the same as the generation of quantum computers today. Although the theory of dark matter is not known to ordinary people, people can actually enjoy the results of this kind of research.
Another important fact that should not be overlooked is that both Google's and IBM's quantum computers are created by private companies. This achievement also highlights the characteristics and paths of modern scientific research and its application. Not only in the field of quantum computers, but also in the field of aerospace, the research and application capabilities of private companies have kept pace with those of national institutions backed by national finance, if not leading. This feature and path deserve attention. IBM is a 100-year-old store, and Google's history, even this month, is 21 years old. As for the Musk Space Exploration Company, which has developed and applied many new space technologies, its history is only more than ten years. These examples inspire people to pay attention to the driving force behind scientific research, even basic research and the application of science and technology. Different driving forces will lead to different research mechanisms.
