Self-Correcting Quantum Computers are closer to Reality

Quantum computers can run at efficiency and speeds that far surpass even the fastest supercomputers. However it hasn’t seen much scale-up and commercialization due to its difficulty with error correction. Scientists have developed a technique that could help solve this issue.

In an increasingly digital world the issue of lag can be an issue. Lag-induced disruptions are frustrating for anyone, whether it’s a video gamer fighting opponents in a virtual arena or someone who’s working with colleagues from around the world. Researchers from MIT and Stanford created a novel method to minimize lags and boost productivity.

AI Detects Hidden Patterns in Nature

Researchers are using data from thousands of bird sightings to find hidden patterns in ecological communities. This research could be the first step towards developing an artificial intelligence that can predict the possibility of habitat loss and other environmental issues. The technology will also help scientists to better understand the role of biodiversity in maintaining ecosystems. This is an essential part of the fight against the effects of climate change and loss in biodiversity. The findings could pave to more sustainable land-use methods that will reduce the need for logging or agriculture.
