Computer scientist, inventor and university physicist Carver Mead is perhaps best known for coining the phrase “Moore’s law,” helping to popularize Gordon Moore’s 1965 observation that the number of transistors on an integrated circuit doubles about every 24 months. Mead was also instrumental in the prediction’s tremendous staying power. One of Mead’s most significant contributions Read more…
What good is computing if it’s not reliable? An international team of researchers just got a little closer to realizing the grand challenge that is practical quantum computing.
Quantum computing is still in it infancy, but soon anyone with a Web browser will have access to an early form of this powerful computing technology thanks to the University of Bristol’s Qcloud project.
Lockheed Martin puts D-Wave quantum computer to work manufacturing aircraft systems.
French-American duo wins Nobel Prize in Physics for developing methods to demonstrate bizarre quantum behavior.
Researchers say approach could lead to mass-produced quantum chips.
The University of Sydney is home to what is potentially the world’s smallest and most powerful computer.
Blind quantum computing protocol preserves the privacy of user data in the cloud.
The supercomputing biz seems to have shaken off most of the after-effects of the global recession, with scads of new deployments large and small around the world. China, in particular, continued its big push into HPC, notching its first home-grown super. And Japan ushered in the era of 10-petaflop supercomputing this year with its world-beating K Computer. But, as always, not all the HPC news was rosy. Here are the top hits and misses for the year.
Another vote of confidence for D-Wave’s quantum computer chip.
