Google builds a working quantum computer

LNM Radio Network

LNM Radio Network

The new platform is able to solve problems 100 million times faster than a conventional desktop PC.
Unlike regular computers which encode data in to bits that can hold a state of either ‘1’ or ‘0’, quantum computers use quantum bits which can exist in both a ‘1’ and ‘0’ state simultaneously.

By using special techniques to manipulate these units of quantum information it becomes possible for a computer to perform a whole series of mathematical calculations all at the same time.
