Self-Correcting Quantum Computers closer to Reality
Quantum computers are expected to achieve speeds and efficiency far beyond the capabilities of the fastest supercomputers. The technology hasn’t experienced much commercialization or expansion, largely due to its difficulty in error correction. Scientists have developed a method to solve this issue.
In a society that is increasingly digital, lags can be a major issue. For gamers who are fighting enemies in a virtual world or someone collaborating with colleagues across the globe, lag-induced interruptions can be very frustrating. Researchers at MIT and Stanford have created a revolutionary method to cut down on the lag and increase productivity.
AI detects patterns that are hidden in the natural world
Researchers are using information from thousands of bird sightings to identify hidden patterns within ecological communities. This research could be the first step toward creating an artificial intelligence that can predict the possibility of habitat loss and other environmental problems. The technology will also help scientists to better understand the role played by species diversity in sustaining ecosystems. This is a crucial aspect of the effort to save the world from climate change and loss of biodiversity. The findings could pave to more sustainable land-use methods that will reduce the need for agriculture or logging.
