Google’s parent company Alphabet has a secretive team working on the future of quantum technologies, and it’s finally starting to come out of the woodwork.
It’s called Sandbox (or, as it’s styled internally, Sandbox@Alphabet) and it’s exploring “the intersection of physics and AI.”
Sources familiar with the project say the team works in the same building as Alphabet’s moonshots division, X, and is made up largely of former X employees – but X says Sandbox operates as a separate group.
