Delhi: Google Inc on Tuesday unveiled a hardware initiative to develop and build processors for its new quantum computing systems based on superconducting electronics.

Google's Quantum Artificial Intelligence group will collaborate with scientists at the the University of California, Santa Barbara.

The research team, led by physicist John Martinis from the University of California, Santa Barbara, will comprise of about 20 researchers.

“With an integrated hardware group, the Quantum AI team will now be able to implement and test new designs for quantum optimization and inference processors based on recent theoretical insights as well as our learnings from the D-Wave quantum annealing architecture,” Hartmut Neven,Google`s director of engineering, said in its blog.

Google also teamed up with NASA Ames Research Center and the Universities Space Research Association (USRA) to study the application of quantum optimization related to artificial intelligence.

Quantum computers will be millions of times faster and powerful than today's computers at solving complex problems.
