Inside Google's Quantum Artificial Intelligence Lab

Asking the right set of questions lead to an accurate answer. That is what Google and NASA is trying do at its Quantum Artificial Intelligence Lab. Google's special team of experts have teamed up with NASA and quantum computing company, D-Wave, to explore the potentials of quantum computing, which may lead to understanding the mysteries of the universe.

"We’re particularly interested in how quantum computing can advance machine learning, which can then be applied to virtually any field: from finding the cure for a disease to understanding changes in our climate," the team at Google's Quantum Lab said.

Google has just released a short film about the project, revealing researchers at work and even the D-Wave computer that operates at an almost zero temperature. The video will debut at the Google's Imagine Science Films Festival in New York.

Using a quantum processor, the "512-qubit machine" reportedly has the capability to predict mathematical calculations. D-Waves says that the machine has 512 superconducting circuits that has flowing current on each strand and cooled at near-zero temperature. The computer then goes into a quantum state, allowing current to flow simultaneously both clockwise and counterclockwise. It then uses a set of algorithms to calculate a specific instruction or task.
