It is possible to manipulate the data and bibliometric indicators offered by Google product. Researchers from University of Granadas conducted experiment in which they created fake researcher and posted fake papers to inflate citation counts for the paper.Manipulating Google Scholar Citations and Google Scholar Metrics: simple, easy and tempting
On the quantum news, four papers have reported their research progress with experimental boson sampler. Check the papers below
- Experimental boson sampling in arbitrary integrated photonic circuits
- Experimental Boson Sampling by Oxford group
- Experimental Boson Sampling
- Experimental BosonSampling by Scott Aaronson
On the same Scott Aaronson has posted excellent blog post titled 'The Boson Apocalypse', in which he has a collection of all articles along with a small FAQ regarding the boson sampler, worth checking it out.
