LAST UPDATED: June 19, 2020, 5:00 p.m. EDT: Honeywell claims that they’ve made the fastest quantum computer on the planet. On Thursday, Honeywell claimed that they have updated their quantum computer up to the best than IBM, by one closely watched measure. After this announcement, Honeywell grabbed the position of leader in Quantum Computing as of now.
Honeywell announced in march that they have been working to make the world’s fastest quantum computer, and hopefully, they will finish this project in some months. On Thursday, they made their ambitions real. Honeywell is working with the mindset of increasing its quantum computing power by a factor of 10 each year for the next five years. This fastest Quantum computer is just a product of this.
Honeywell’s quantum computer named, dubbed H0 got a score of 64 Quantum volume. That test gauges both the total count of a machine’s qubits ( fundamental elements that process data in a quantum computer) and how well the machine uses those qubits (another term of quantum bit).
The score of 64 outpassed IBM’s 32 Raleigh machine-score. Quantum Computer is based on the rule of atomic-scale physics that promises to solve those problems and equations that a classic computer cannot solve. Quantum computing technology is used to optimizing financial portfolios, machine learning, and designing new materials like solar panels, batteries, etc. Researchers at Honeywell are continuously trying to increases the qubits of Computers to make them more and more efficient. In future, Quantum computers are going to become more advanced due to qubits.
Decades ago, Honeywell left the world of quantum computing. But In recent years, they quietly assembled a team of 120 researchers in Colorado and used their expertise in materials science and industrial operations to restart quantum computing.
Honeywell’s current design, H0, will reach all the way from today’s quantum volume of 64 to 640,000 as the company adds more qubits — said Tony Uttley, president of Honeywell’s quantum computing division.
