Self-Correcting Quantum Computers are closer to Reality

Quantum computers could reach speeds and efficiencies that are beyond the capabilities of even the most powerful supercomputers. The technology hasn’t experienced much commercialization or expansion due to its difficulty with error correction. Scientists have developed an approach to solve this problem.

In a rapidly evolving digital world, lag can become an issue. If it’s a video gamer fighting opponents in a virtual arena or a colleague working across the globe, lag-related interruptions can be extremely frustrating. Researchers at MIT and Stanford came up with a new strategy to minimize lags and boost productivity.

AI Detects Hidden Patterns in Nature

Researchers are using data from thousands bird sightings to identify hidden patterns in ecological communities. This research may be the first step to developing an artificial intelligence that can predict the likelihood of habitat loss as well as other environmental problems. This technology will allow scientists to better understand the importance of species in maintaining ecosystems. This is a vital aspect of the effort to protect the planet from climate change and loss of biodiversity. The discovery could lead the development of more sustainable land use methods that minimize the need for agriculture and logs.
