Google and NASA show off their quantum computing lab in a new video

Google and NASA show off their Quantum Artificial Intelligence Lab (NASDAQ:GOOG)

Something that doesn't mean much in mainstream news today, is going to mean worlds more in the coming decades, and this is quantum computing. Google and NASA announced their Quantum Artificial Intelligence Lab back in May, but now we get to check it out, in the video below.

 

 

The video comes thanks to the two giants making a short film for the Imagine Film Science Festival, with Google and NASA explaining that the AI lab would eventually solve optimization problems that are quite simply beyond the scope of traditional computers. NASA could use the quantum computing to help them look deeper into the dark beyond that is space, while Google could use it to improve medicine - especially with its latest announcement.

It's an interesting video, where we get to take a look into one of D-Wave's second-generation quantum computers, where each system requires a giant enclosure to keep the hardware temps down to near absolute zero. I'm guessing that this system could most likely run Crysis (that joke is getting really old, but someone has to say it, right?).
