Google has developed a new quantum processor called Bristlecone that it hopes will be instrumental in building a quantum computer capable of solving real-world problems. At the American Physical Society meeting in Los Angeles where the chip was unveiled, Google said the purpose of its gate-based superconducting system is to provide a testbed for research into system error rates and scalability of its qubit technology, along with applications in quantum simulation, optimization, and machine learning. "In order for a quantum processor to be able to run algorithms beyond the scope of classical simulations, it requires not only a large number of qubits. Crucially, the processor must also have low...
