An advanced material that could help bring about next-generation "spintronic" computers has revealed one of its fundamental secrets to a team of scientists from Argonne National Laboratory (ANL) and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). The material, constructed of two different compounds, might one day allow computers to use the magnetic spin of electrons, in addition to their charge, for computation. A host of innovations could result, including fast memory devices...

Scientists have successfully demonstrated that they can build some of the basic components for digital devices out of bacteria and DNA Scientists have successfully demonstrated that they can build some of the basic components for digital devices out of bacteria and DNA, which could pave the way for a new generation of biological computing devices, in research published today in the journal Nature Communications. The researchers, from Imperial College London, have demonstrated that they...

Greg Herzog has created a Quantum Reaction Algorithm using a geometric mathematical equation, where X number of points represents the makeup of a subject and each degree of expression within the context of each point is color coded and weighted accordingly. New York, NY (PRWEB) September 23, 2011 Greg Herzog Paints The First Contemporary Abstract Painting of the Museum Of Modern Art, using his trademarked technique: COLOR CODING DNA ®. What would a subject look like if they were...

A combination of two algorithms developed at MIT allows autonomous robots to execute tasks much more efficiently – and move more predictably. Ask someone with her hands in her lap to pick up a coffee mug on the table she´s sitting at, and she´ll extract her hand from under the table and stretch her arm out toward the mug. Instruct an autonomous robot to perform the same feat, and it may think for a few seconds, zigzag its robotic hand back and forth under the table, then...

Thanks to advances in experimental design, physicists at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have achieved a record-low probability of error in quantum information processing with a single quantum bit (qubit)–the first published error rate small enough to meet theoretical requirements for building viable quantum computers. A quantum computer could potentially solve certain problems that are intractable using today's technology, even supercomputers. The NIST...

By combining two frontier technologies, spintronics and straintronics, a team of researchers from Virginia Commonwealth University has devised perhaps the world's most miserly integrated circuit. Their proposed design runs on so little energy that batteries are not even necessary; it could run merely by tapping the ambient energy from the environment. Rather than the traditional charge-based electronic switches that encode the basic 0s and 1s of computer lingo, spintronics harnesses the...

Physicists at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have discovered that the quantum properties of ions can be manipulated using microwaves, instead of lasers. Using microwaves enables the experiments to be made with a system that is one-tenth the size of conventional laser based systems. Compared to the laser sources, microwave components could be expanded to build practical quantum computing systems using thousands of ions for quantum computing and simulations....

Dr Xiao-Qi Zhou and colleagues at the University of Bristol's Centre for Quantum Photonics and the University of Queensland, Australia, have shown that controlled operations "” ones that are implemented on the condition that a "control bit" is in the state 1 "” can be dramatically simplified compared to the standard approach. The researchers believe their technique will find applications across quantum information technologies, including precision measurement, simulation of...

Algorithm
2013-12-16 10:46:30

In mathematics and computer science, an algorithm is a step-by-step procedure for calculations. Algorithms are used for calculations, automated reasoning, and data processing. An algorithm is an effective technique expressed as a finite list of well-defined instructions for calculating a function. Starting from an initial state and an initial input, the instructions describe a computation that, when executed, proceeds through a finite number of well-defined successive states and eventually...

Word of the Day
cock-a-hoop
  • Exultant; jubilant; triumphant; on the high horse.
  • Tipsy; slightly intoxicated.
This word may come from the phrase 'to set cock on hoop,' or 'to drink festively.' Its origin otherwise is unclear. A theory, according to the Word Detective, is that it's a 'transliteration of the French phrase 'coq a huppe,' meaning a rooster displaying its crest ('huppe') in a pose of proud defiance.' Therefore, 'cock-a-hoop' would 'liken a drunken man to a boastful and aggressive rooster.'
