Latest Quantum information science Stories
Google and NASA are joining forces to create a new research laboratory that will use a quantum supercomputer to study artificial intelligence and machine learning, according to various media reports.
Harnessing the unique features of the quantum world promises a dramatic speed-up in information processing as compared to the fastest classical machines.
From brain to heart to stomach, the bodies of humans and animals generate weak magnetic fields that a supersensitive detector could use to pinpoint illnesses, trace drugs – and maybe even read minds.
Quantum computing just took a step from theory to practice with a test that took place at Amherst College in Massachusetts.
According to a groundbreaking announcement, scientists at Los Alamos National Labs in New Mexico have been utilizing a small-scale “quantum internet” for the past two years.
By using light, researchers at UC Santa Barbara have manipulated the quantum state of a single atomic-sized defect in diamond –– the nitrogen-vacancy center –– in a method that not only allows for more unified control than conventional processes, but is more versatile, and opens up the possibility of exploring new solid-state quantum systems.
An Australian team led by researchers at the University of New South Wales has achieved a breakthrough in quantum science that brings the prospect of a network of ultra-powerful quantum computers - connected via a quantum internet –closer to reality.
