Project Description

The goal of the Quantum AI team at Google is to build a universal quantum computer. We are developing quantum algorithms in particular with a focus on those which can already run on today’s pre-error corrected quantum processors. Quantum algorithms for optimization, sampling, and quantum simulation hold the promise of dramatic speedups over the fastest classical computers.
The focus of our hardware team is to improve the quality and quantity of the quantum bits (qubits) in our quantum processors. Performing calculations faster than conventional supercomputers requires high fidelity in qubit initialization, operation, and measurement with sufficiently high degree of control and connectivity. We achieve this by researching novel chip architectures and materials.
Our theory group is developing practical algorithms for pre and post-error corrected quantum processors. Examples are quantum chemistry simulations, quantum-assisted optimization, and quantum neural networks. Our cloud team is working to provide access to quantum processors via the Google Cloud Platform. The Quantum AI lab collaborates with universities, national labs, and companies around the world.
