Quantum supremacy – Google Sycamore superconducting processor

Google new Sycamore processor is over 1.5 billion times faster than a million core super computer!!
So, a 10,000 year process on a million core super computer takes 200 seconds on the Google Sycamore superconducting quantum processor.
How does that impact
  • Brute Force attacks
  • Encryption and related issues like hash calculation, certificates
  • AI, machine learning
  • Simulations, modeling
“obtaining a million samples on the quantum processor takes 200 seconds, whereas an equal-fidelity classical sampling would take 10,000 years on a million cores”

Google service interruption?

I’m starting to see a number of issues with different Google services today (December 15, 2014) including GMail, Google Apps, DNS, …

The site DownDetector.com is showing a large spike of reports around 12 noon (Eastern = GMT-5) Google1

Although Google Apps Status Dashboard is not showing anything for the 15th
