Quantum Computer Simulation: New World Record on JUGENE

Jun 28, 2010 |

The civil engineer Konrad Zuse was born in Berlin exactly 100 years ago. In 1941, he built the world’s first computer. And thanks to his pioneering work, the scientists at the Jülich Supercomputing Center have now succeeded in setting a world record by simulating the largest quantum computer system with 42 qubits.

IBM Invents Short-Cut to Assessing Data Quality

Feb 25, 2010 |

In what IBM is characterizing as a “breakthrough,” researchers have developed an algorithm that cuts the computational costs of assessing data quality by two orders of magnitude. The new algorithm has potentially far-reaching applicability, extending to nearly all types of analytics applications as well as scientific modeling and simulation.
