Japanese scientists have invented a new loop-based quantum computing technique that renders a far larger number of calculations more efficiently than existing quantum computers, allowing a single circuit to process more than 1 million qubits theoretically, as reported in Physical Review Letters.
U.S. and European physicists searching for an explanation for high-temperature superconductivity were surprised when their theoretical model pointed to the existence of a never-before-seen material in a different realm of physics: topological quantum materials
IBM Makes Breakthrough in Race to Commercialize Quantum Computers - In the experiments described in the journal Nature, IBM researchers used a quantum computer to derive the lowest energy state of a molecule of beryllium hydride, the largest molecule ever simulated on a quantum computer.
Crystal treated with erbium, an element already found in fluorescent lights and old TVs, allowed researchers to store quantum information successfully for 1.3 seconds, which is 10,000 times longer than what has been accomplished before, putting the quantum internet within reach - Nature Physics.
Wikipedia explains that String Field Theory is a part a of Quantum Field Theory while regular String Theory is not. What exactly is the difference between String Field Theory and String Theory?
Governments have to invest in the fourth industrial revolution - "artificial intelligence, nanotechnology, biotechnology, materials science, 3D printing and quantum computing to transform the global economy."
TIL that theoretical physicist Max Planck was told not to get into the field by his physics professor because "in this field, almost everything is already discovered." He did so anyway and originated Quantum Theory which revolutionized the field.
IBM to build quantum computers, selling machines millions of times faster than anything made before - The first practical machines will be available soon enough that developers should start working on software for them, according to executives
