Google to Build a Practical Quantum Computer

It’ll need a million or so qubits, Google’s top researchers say at Google I/O. The company’s biggest machines today have only a few dozen.

Google has begun building a new and larger quantum computing research center that will employ hundreds of people to design and build a broadly useful quantum computer by 2029. It’s the latest sign that the competition to turn these radical new machines into practical tools is growing more intense as established players like IBM and Honeywell vie with quantum computing startups.

The new Google Quantum AI campus is in Santa Barbara, California, where Google’s first quantum computing lab already employs dozens of researchers and engineers, Google said at its annual I/O developer conference on Tuesday. A few initial researchers already are working there.
