The force behind google quantum technology is awarded Bell Prize
"The seventh biennial John Stewart Bell Prize for Research on Fundamental Issues in Quantum Mechanics and Their Applications is awarded to John Martinis (professor of physics, UC Santa Barbara, USA) for his innovations in the design and control of superconducting devices, in particular his leadership in devising low-error multi-qubit superconducting chips, which has resulted in the first plausible claim of quantum supremacy, ushering in a new era of computing."
John Martinis was among very first scientists who started developing superconducting quantum processors. It is heart-warming to see a pioneer, who was the main force behind the quantum technology at google, is recognized by being awarded Bell Prize. Congratulations to Prof. John Martinis!
