What does Quantum Supremacy actually mean?
And has Google actually accomplished it?
In a controversial announcement, Google has claimed to have achieved Quantum Supremacy.
For those of us without science or tech degrees, it’s all about timing.

The controversy and contention are expected.

But Google’s feathers aren’t ruffled at all.
While everyone else is fighting about it, they’ll keep pioneering.
And making the breakthrough tech even better.
