Australian scientists and Microsoft Corporation invented a single chip that can generate control signals for thousands of qubits, when the world’s biggest quantum computers currently operate with just 50 or so qubits.
The KSTAR, a superconducting fusion device also known as the Korean artificial sun, set the new world record as it succeeded in maintaining the high temperature plasma for 20 seconds with an ion t over 100 mil degrees.
US-based firm Aevum has unveiled a massive drone called the Ravn X that is designed to act as an autonomous, airborne launch system for small satellites.
The future of work may look a lot like science fiction in a few years as advances in augmented and virtual reality as well as 5G and 6G wireless technologies revolutionize the way we interact with one another digitally.
China sent "the world's first 6G test satellite" into the orbit with a launch of Long March 6 carrier rocket on Friday. The satellite will become "the first technical verification of terahertz communication" tested in space.
The futuristic transport concept involves pods inside vacuum tubes carrying passengers at high speeds. Virgin Hyperloop is not the only firm developing the concept but nobody has carried passengers before.
Roughly 1,000 electrodes will be inserted into the targeted collection of neurons, and those will connect to an implant above the surface of the brain. Musk said that it plans to do initial testing with tetraplegics.
The specific objective of Neuralink is to develop ultra-high bandwidth brain-machine interfaces to connect humans and computers. Practically, this materializes as a chip that is implanted into the brain.
Chinese company CATL says it has new battery technology that lasts up to 2 million kilometers and 16 years—and it’s ready to manufacture the batteries on demand. The battery could power a car for 50 trips around the world.
An ambitious plan to build a quantum computer the size of a soccer field could soon become a reality. A startup founded by the researchers behind the idea has just come out of stealth with $4.5 million in funding.
