...They ran hundred of thousands data trials to check statistically how error prone QC is. The result was "it was doing quantum computing but is error prone" (at some percentage).
To be honest, I never got the whole idea of computing based on quantum fluctuations. There is an advantage in using quantum entanglement to speed internal computations, since quantum entanglement allows information to travel faster than the speed of light. The costs of maintaining the quantum entanglement appear at this stage to be far greater than the advantages received, though. And then, in order to be useful, any information output would still have to be translated into an energy form that we can interact with. I can't tell which way an electron too small for me to even hope to see is spinning, and I don't think I am alone.

Just flagging it up now, because when alphabet gets involved it's not long before we should start worrying for real.
The sky(net) isn't falling yet, but it's worth keeping an eye on abc-xyz (if you catch my meaning).
