Google Buys a Quantum Computer for Artificial Intelligence Lab with NASA


The search giant Google is now too much interested to elaborate artificial intelligence. Google and NASA together establishing a laboratory called 'Quantum Artificial Intelligence Lab' to study AI by using quantum computers. For this purpose, Google actually buys a big Quantum Computer worth 15 million dollars. This computer has a speed 1000 times faster than latest super computers. Google buys this speedy computer from D-Wave systems. This new Google quantum computer will start working during the third quarter of this year.

Director of Engineering at Google, Hartmut Neven, has made the official announcement of launching the lab in a blog post today. He stated that Google is launching the Quantum Artificial Intelligence Lab today. While Ames Research Center of NASA will be responsible to run the lab. Google also indulged the USRA (Universities Space Research Association) in this project. The duty of USRA is to gather researchers from around the world to provide their time and efforts on this project. Google's actual goal is to study that how quantum computing will enhance machine learning.

Google has already worked on quantum computing and developed some algorithms for machine learning. One of these algorithms succeeded in getting efficient results that will be useful when your mobile device is on low power. While another is used for computed data for proper labeling. Now the search giant wants to use these algorithms in real practice to find real solutions for the quantum hardware.

For this purpose, Google has established the Quantum Artificial Intelligence Lab. Neven is very hopeful that this new quantum computer will help the researchers of lab to define precised models for everything. Neven stated that the company really "think quantum machine learning may provide the most creative problem-solving process under the known laws of physics". Google is enthusiastic to start working on a joint project with NASA Ames, D-Wave, the USRA, and scientists from around the world.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
