Google’s new quantum computer reportedly spends mere minutes on the tasks the world’s top supercomputers would need several millennia to perform. The media found out about this after NASA “accidentally” shared the firm’s research.

The software engineers at Google have built the world’s most powerful computer, the Financial Times and Fortune magazine reported on Friday, citing the company’s now-removed research paper.

The paper is said to have been posted on a website hosted by NASA, which partners with Google, but later quietly taken down, without explanation. Quantum processors will help create new, advanced chemicals and develop next-level artificial intelligence, among other things.

Google and NASA have refused to comment on the matter. A source within the IT giant, however, told Fortune that NASA had “accidentally” published the paper before its team could verify its findings.

In the research, Google reportedly claimed that it takes their new quantum processor just around 200 seconds to make calculations that existing supercomputers would require around 10,000 years to perform.

They also said the processor requires mere 30 seconds to complete a task the Google Cloud server would need 50 trillion hours to do.

Quantum computing allows evaluating multiple possibilities at once and performing complex calculations not possible on normal computers.

So, if proven true, Google’s new processor would be a real breakthrough, propelling the firm way ahead of giants like Microsoft, IBM and Intel, all of whom compete in building quantum processors.

The most powerful quantum computer (that we know of) was revealed in Moscow in 2017 with a “speed” of 51qbits. Google’s supercomputer is supposedly 73 qbits. The way NASA revealed it and then deleted the post is typical to a child pretending to have something they don’t.

China unveiled and tested a quantum satellite in 2017.

Google and Microsoft have been focusing all their efforts on ways to steal data from their users without being busted, and also ways to make them pay for services that should be free. Dream on America, you were finished the day you killed for profit.
