Google announced a breakthrough in the field of quantum computing Wednesday. The company thinks it's found a quantum algorithm that solves problems 100 million times faster than conventional processes.
Google qualified these results as "intriguing and very encouraging" in its announcement, though the company has a long way to go before this research is ready for the consumer market.
Unfortunately, the "proof" portion of the headline isn't confirmed in the article. If you'd rather skip what's basically just a journalistic rewrite of Google's blog post, the blog post itself is here.
