Quantum AI…

Topics: Artificial Intelligence, Computer Science, Materials Science, Quantum Mechanics Quantum materials known as Mott insulators can “learn” to respond to external stimuli in a way that mimics animal behavior, say researchers at Rutgers University in the US. The discovery of behaviors such as habituation and sensitization in these non-living systems could lead to new algorithmsContinue reading “Quantum AI…”

Tech Authoritarianism…

Topics: Computer Science, Politics, Social Media To build the metaverse, Facebook needs us to get used to smart glasses. Last week Facebook released its new $299 “Ray-Ban Stories” glasses. Wearers can use them to record and share images and short videos, listen to music, and take calls. The people who buy these glasses will soon be outContinue reading “Tech Authoritarianism…”

Space-Based Quantum Technology…

Topics: Computer Science, Quantum Computer, Quantum Mechanics Quantum technologies are already revolutionizing life on Earth. But they also have the potential to change the way we operate in space. With the U.S., China, and Europe all investing heavily in this area, these changes are likely to be with us sooner rather than later. So howContinue reading “Space-Based Quantum Technology…”

Smallest Qubit Computer…

Topics: Computer Science, Quantum Computer, Quantum Mechanics The smallest quantum computer to date has been claimed by a team of researchers in Austria, Switzerland, and Germany. Using strings of trapped ions that are addressed using laser pulses, Ivan Pogorelov at the University of Innsbruck and colleagues created a system that contains 24 fully-entangled quantum bits (qubits)  andContinue reading “Smallest Qubit Computer…”
