Physicists use light waves to enable ultrafast quantum computing

Scientists have discovered that terahertz light - light at trillions of cycles per second - can act as a control knob to accelerate supercurrents. That can help open up the quantum world of matter and energy at atomic and subatomic scales.

Discovery of a 'holy grail' with the invention of universal computer memory

A new type of computer memory promises to transform daily life with its ultra-low energy consumption, allowing computers which do not need to boot up and which could sleep between key strokes.

Step towards light-based, brain-like computing chip

Scientists have succeeded in developing a piece of hardware which could pave the way for creating computers resembling the human brain. They produced a chip containing a network of artificial neurons that works with light and can imitate neurons and their synapses.

A biosynthetic dual-core cell computer

Swiss researchers have now found a way to use biological components to construct a flexible core processor, that accepts different kinds of programming. The processor developed is based on a modified CRISPR-Cas9 system.

Scientists harness quantum computing to view alternative futures

A team of researchers from Singapore and Australia have implemented a prototype quantum device that can generate and analyze a quantum superposition of possible futures.

First exascale supercomputer to be built in the US

The supercomputer will be called Aurora and Intel is aiming to deliver it by 2021. Aurora will apply AI and high-performance computing to "areas such as cancer research and climate modeling.

Reversing the flow of time on a quantum computer

Researchers have developed an algorithm to simulate returning a particle briefly to the past. The results suggest new paths for exploring the backward flow of time in quantum systems.

IBM's quantum computer has reached its 'highest quantum volume to date'

IBM has announced that its System Q One quantum computer has doubled in performance in each of the past two years. IBM is one of the big-name companies working to create a truly useful quantum computer.

IBM Just Unveiled The First Commercial Quantum Computer

IBM unveiled the IBM Q System One, billed as the first-ever quantum computer designed for businesses to put to their own use – though the company is clear that this is only the first step towards a broader revolution.

A new type of quantum computer has smashed every record

IonQ was founded on a gamble that 'trapped ion quantum' computing could outperform the silicon-based quantum computers that Google and others are building. As of right now, it does.

This Could Be the Best Quantum Computer Yet

A startup based in Maryland has released and tested an impressive new quantum computer that demonstrates the power of an occasionally overlooked quantum computing architecture.

The Supercomputer, Modeled After the Human Brain, Is Up and Running

After a decade of development, a million-core version of the machine that will eventually be able to simulate up to a billion neurons, The SpiNNaker supercomputer, was switched on earlier this month.

Russia Boasts Compact Deploy-Anywhere Supercomputer

The compute module is said to provide record capacity for the space industry as well as the defense and industrial complex, using 40 percent less electricity than comparable solutions.

A New Supercomputer Is the World's Fastest Brain-Mimicking Machine

Since 2016, SpiNNaker has been simulating neuron activity using 500,000 core processors, but the upgraded machine has twice that capacity. Now it has the capacity to perform 200 quadrillion actions simultaneously.

One step closer to complex quantum teleportation

Austrian scientists are pursuing the idea to use more complex quantum systems. The developed methods and technologies could in the future enable the teleportation of complex quantum systems.
