Quantum computer researcher Michelle Simmons was named 2018 Australian of the Year.
Dr. Talia Gershon, a materials scientist by training, came to IBM Research in 2012. After 4.5 years of developing next-generation solar cell materials, she got inspired to learn about quantum computing because it might enable all kinds of discoveries
Southampton researchers have improved the memristor. how they have pushed the memristor – a simpler and smaller alternative to the transistor, with the capability of altering its resistance and storing multiple memory states – to a new level of p
Nature Materials – SiGe epitaxial memory for neuromorphic computing with reproducible high performance based on engineered dislocations
Researchers at Oregon State University have designed and fabricated the world's smallest electro-optic modulator, which could mean major reductions in energy used by data centers and supercomputers.
Neuromorphic computing researchers have been working on the development of memory resistors, or memristors, which are resistors in a circuit that 'remember' their state even if you lose power.
WPA3 promises better authentication, stronger encryption and protection for open networks.
If you've ever struggled to pair your phone with a Bluetooth speaker or set up a wireless printer, you know that it's often easier to connect to a server halfway around the world than to a gadget across the room. That's a problem as we increasingly u
D-Wave Systems has commercially sold 2000 qubit quantum annealing systems.
Daniel Gruss didn't sleep much the night he hacked his own computer and exposed a flaw in most of the chips made in the past two decades by hardware giant Intel, something we discussed in "Why The Implications Of The Intel "Bug" Are Staggering."
Only Intel machines are affected by Meltdown
The birthplace of the photonics revolution may well be named after lithium niobate. While, Lithium Niobate Valley doesn't have the same ring as Silicon Valley, this material could be for optics what silicon was for electronics.
The (noisy) 50-100 qubit quantum computer is coming soon. (NISQ = noisy intermediate-scale quantum computer).
Rigetti has demonstrated unsupervised machine learning using 19Q, their new 19-qubit general purpose superconducting quantum processor. We did this with a quantum/classical hybrid algorithm for clustering developed at Rigetti.
IBM, Dwave Systems, Google, Rigetti, Intel and others are computing to develop faster quantum computing systems.
Design for quantum computing chip scalable to millions of error corrected qubits using standard CMOS tech
NVIDIA TITAN V is the most powerful graphics card ever created for the PC, driven by the world's most advanced architecture--NVIDIA Volta.
Samsung has started mass production of new embedded Universal Flash Storage (eUFS) chips, which should bump up the storage capacity of future smartphones to a more capacious 512 GB. The chips can reportedly double the density of storage in the same a
Quantum Supremacy is when quantum computers become faster than classical computers. Once Quantum Computers surpass classical computers they will continue to improve at a far more rapid pace.
Samsung's new "upcycling" initiative will allow you to put a completely new operating system on your old phones to give them new life.
D-Wave system shows quantum computers can learn to detect particle signatures in mountains of data, but doesn't outpace conventional methods -- yet.
Two Oak Ridge National Laboratory's Quantum Information Science Group teams received more than $10 million over five years to both assess the feasibility of quantum architectures in addressing big science problems and to develop algorithms capable
While working at Tesla, I always enjoyed talking to people after they finished a factory tour. As much as they raved about the amazing automation, gigantic presses, and hundreds of robots, the reality was they only saw half of the actual manufacturin
Just a few years ago, the consensus on a timeline to large-scale, reliable quantum computers was 20 years to never.
The primary challenge with microwave-assisted magnetic recording (MAMR) involved the spin torque oscillator (STO)-- and those issues have now been solved thanks to Western Digitals innovative STO breakthroughs.
Information and communication technology (ICT) has been the largest and strongest R and D industry sector.
Intel announced the delivery of a 17-qubit superconducting test chip for quantum computing to QuTech, Intel's quantum research partner in the Netherlands. The new chip was fabricated by Intel and features a unique design to achieve improved yield a
On 37 hectares (nearly 4 million square feet) in Hefei, Anhui Province, China is building a $10 billion research center for quantum applications.
When engineers want to make an object weigh less, they literally cut corners.
In Star Trek, you talk to the computer and it understands you and alters the ship and the environment in response. Star Trek also has universal voice translation.
