to quantum computing
that we're past the proof-of-concept stage
of quantum computing, the race is on to find
technology that can scale up to useful devices.
One team is betting that shining multicolor
lasers on a dirty diamond will get them to
the promised land of 300-qubit quantum computers.
But first they have to come up with a single
emerge from simulation
No, this doesn't herald the end of humanity. But
it does mean machines that design, build, reconfigure
and repair themselves are another step closer.
sorts Web data
The Web made sharing documents a snap. A research
consortium is poised to free the facts and figures
trapped on those pages, letting you correlate sales
figures and sunspots.
design tunes memory on the fly
Combining a simple adjustment to standard microprocessor
memory with a little bit of software could yield
faster computer chips that use less energy.
Researchers in Europe have fashioned superconducting
material into a very cold transistor. Ultralow-power
electronics are on the horizon.
