Microsoft creates a quantum programming language

Microsoft has announced it's ready to put its full support behind quantum computing and wants to encourage developers to follow its lead. The company has created a new programming language so coders can write their first quantum programs.

Big scientific breakthrough at sub-atomic level holds promise for secure comms

Washington - Chinese scientists have pulled off a major feat with one of the sub-atomic world's weirdest phenomena: photons that behave like twins and experience the same things simultaneously, even over great distances.

IBM's new quantum processor is its most powerful yet

IBM has announced a new quantum processor that runs at 17-qubits, a notable performance improvement for the company. It brings IBM a step closer to creating quantum computers with more power than the very fastest traditional PCs.

China launches world first quantum satellite

Bejing - China launched the world's first quantum satellite on Tuesday, state media reported, in an effort to harness the power of particle physics to build an "unhackable" system of encrypted communications.

Google's quantum computer '100 million times faster' than your PC

Google has developed a working quantum supercomputer that has 100 million times greater performance than a typical desktop machine. D-Wave can compute in a second what a standard desktop would take 10,000 years to do.

Intel pledges $50m investment in quantum computing research

Intel has announced that it is making a long-term investment into the development of quantum computing systems. It will contribute $50 million over the next 10 years to help shape the future of computing for when semi-conductors are obsolete.

Memristor circuit recreates the brain and carries out human tasks

Researchers have developed a new kind of neural circuit that uses memristor technology to replicate the complex human brain. The "intelligent" circuit was able to perform some human tasks that computers usually struggle at, such as image classification.

Quantum technology advances digital communications

Technologists have shown that information stored as quantum bits can be "exponentially compressed" without losing information. This technological feat will be useful for a new generation of communications and computer storage.

Quantum computing: breakthrough in electron alteration technique

Princeton University -- A researcher has discovered a method in altering a single electron without disturbing the trillions of electrons surrounding it. This discovery is a quantum leap forward in the future of computing.

Physicists Get Two Atoms to Communicate: Quantum Internet Soon to Follow

Researchers at the University of Michigan have succeeded in getting two atoms to communicate, even at a distance from each other. This provides great insight into creating what has been called the "Quantum Internet".

Wizardry at Harvard: Physicists Move Light

In a quantum mechanical sleight of hand, Harvard physicists have shown that they can not only bring a pulse of light to a complete halt, but also resuscitate the light at a different location and let it continue on its way.

Magiq proposes new quantum encryption scheme

Startup MagiQ Technologies thinks it's got a sure way to keep data from prying eyes, using Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle...

Its an elegant bleeping universe

In string theory, physicists tell us that the subatomic particles that make up our universe are created within ten spatial dimensions (plus an additional dimension of time).....but how to imagine them?
