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.

New cryptography required to protect users from quantum computers

Quantum computers promise unparalleled computer power and data analysis. However, they also pose a significant risk to how the Internet is currently configured in terms of security and privacy according to the Eindhoven University of Technology.

IBM and MIT partnering to develop artificial intelligence lab

Cambridge - IBM will spend $240 million over 10 years to develop an artificial intelligence research lab with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Qubits for quantum computers from ultracold molecules

Scientists have discovered that collections of ultracold molecules can retain the information stored in them for hundreds of times longer than comparable materials. Such clusters could serve as qubits for quantum computers.

Screening for novel drugs using powerful computers

London - Searching for new types of drugs is a medical imperative. This is a complex task involving many types of diseases and chemical interactions. To assist with this process, Francis Crick Institute researchers have developed a new model.

Quantum technology helps prevent counterfeit electronics

Researchers have taken a major step in terms of preventing counterfeiting. This is through generating unique atomic-scale identifiers based on the irregularities found in 2-D materials such as graphene.

Quantum computing initiative advances drug discovery

Quantum computing holds the answer for treating several serious neurological diseases, as well as offering solutions to the personalized medicine initiative. New research from Accenture, 1QBit and Biogen has delivered promising results.

Quantum computing advanced with silicon-laced diamonds

Boston - Quantum computing could be advanced through a relatively simple process: the addition of a little silicon to a diamond, which turns diamond defects into efficient quantum bits.

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.

Faster computers from ultrashort light pulses

Computers of the future may be able to operate at speeds 100,000 times faster than those of today if the promises of ultrashort light pulses are realized.

New form of matter may advance quantum computing

In what could overturn our understanding of physics, a new phase of matter has been created. This is called, colloquially at least, “a time crystal.” Here atoms appear to move in a pattern that repeats in time rather than in space.

IBM to start building 'universal' quantum computers this decade

IBM has announced it will begin manufacturing mainstream quantum computers within the next few years. The commercial first will see 50-qubit machines go on sale this decade with performance millions of times greater than current desktops.

Microsoft ready to start building scalable quantum computers

Microsoft has announced it is progressing from simply researching quantum computing to actually building machines that run on "qubits." Quantum computing could open up new avenues of scientific research by offering vastly greater performance.

Canada's PM Trudeau explains quantum computers

Know much about quantum computing? Me neither. But the prime minister of Canada, Justin Trudeau, is ready to give you a crash couse in it. And he manages to make it understandable.

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.

Massless particle found with uses in next-generation electronics

After an 85-year search for the elusive massless particle, an international team led by Princeton University have discovered Weyl fermions, which may give rise to faster and more efficient electronics.
