Self-Correcting Quantum Computers are closer to Reality
Quantum computers are expected to achieve speeds and efficiency that are far beyond the capabilities of the most powerful supercomputers. However the technology hasn’t seen much commercialization and scale-up largely because of its difficulty in adjusting errors. Scientists have developed a technique to address this issue.
In a society that is increasingly digital, lags can be a major issue. If it’s a video gamer fighting foes in a virtual arena or a worker working with colleagues across the globe, lag-related disruptions can be frustrating. But researchers from MIT and Stanford have devised a new strategy to minimize delays and boost productivity.
AI Finds Hidden Patterns in Nature
Researchers are using information from thousands of bird sightings to discover hidden patterns within ecological communities. This research could be the first step in creating artificial intelligence that can predict habitat loss and other environmental issues. This technology will allow scientists to better understand the role played by biodiversity of species in maintaining ecosystems. This is an essential part of the effort to protect the planet from the effects of climate change and loss of biodiversity. The research could pave the way to more sustainable land-use practices that reduce the necessity for logging or agriculture.
