Google plans big strides in the world of quantum computing.

The binary code is the heart of modern computing, which has been used in computers for years.

 

Only the bits used in the machine is either a 1 or a 0 to process data, and quantum computers are built based on quantum bit or bits which can be 1, 0 or both can be used at the same time.

 

They rely on the strange quantum property of superposition, in which subatomic particles can exist in a haze of no fixed sate.

 

Google says it will have a working 49-qubit chip by end of the year that will prove this principle. If this can be achieved, then it would be a major coup for Google and could lead to supercomputers of enormous proceeding power
