Self-Correcting Quantum Computers Nearer to Reality

Quantum computers can achieve efficiency and speeds that surpass even the most powerful supercomputers. The technology hasn’t seen much commercialization or scaling up, largely due to its difficulty with error correction. Scientists have developed a method to address this issue.

In a world that is increasingly digital it is possible for lag to become an issue. It doesn’t matter if you’re a player battling enemies in a virtual world or a colleague working across the globe, lag-induced disruptions can be frustrating. Researchers at MIT and Stanford developed a new method to reduce lags and increase productivity.

AI detects hidden patterns in the natural world

Researchers are using data from thousands bird sightings to uncover hidden patterns within ecological communities. This research could be the first step toward creating artificial intelligence that can predict habitat loss and other environmental issues. The technology will also help scientists to better understand the role played by species diversity in sustaining ecosystems. This is an important part of the fight against the effects of climate change and loss of biodiversity. The discovery could lead the development of more sustainable land use methods that reduce the need for agriculture as well as logging.
