Despite the skepticism from Physicists, Google. NASA. Lockheed Martin. Los Alamos National Laboratory are investing millions of dollars in the quantum computing technology of the Burnaby, B.C.-based company D-Wave. They say they’re starting to see promising results, despite criticism.Quantum computing is a new form of computing based on quantum mechanics, the strange physics that affects very, very small particles such as atoms. In theory, it has the potential to revolutionize artificial intelligence, space travel and other fields by solving problems conventional computers either can’t solve or can only solve very slowly. Google announced that D-Wave’s latest model, its 2X quantum annealer, was 100 million times faster than its conventional computing counterpart at solving a test problem involving almost 1,000 variables. Critics say companies that invest in it are making a “wild bet.”
