China's 176-qubit quantum computing platform,

named Zuchongzhi, is a significant step forward in the development of quantum computing. 

It is the world's first quantum computer with more than 100 qubits, 

and it is expected to be able to perform tasks that are impossible for classical computers. 

Qubits are the basic units of information in quantum computing. 

They can be in a superposition of two states, which allows 

them to perform calculations that are impossible for classical computers.  

The more qubits a quantum computer has, the more powerful it is. 

Zuchongzhi is made up of two 66-qubit chips that are connected together. 

This allows it to perform more complex calculations than a single 66-qubit chip.
