Intel learned to control hot qubits

Intel learned to control hot qubits. This will increase the efficiency of quantum computers, the company said. The application of quantum computing to practical tasks depends on the ability to scale and control thousands, if not millions of qubits, simultaneously with a high level of accuracy. However, modern designs of quantum systems are limited by...

Facebook will create a simulation of itself – with bots instead of real users

Facebook will create a simulation of itself – with bots instead of real users. It is planned that the simulation will be as similar as possible to the original version of the social network – and the bots will imitate the behavior and comments of people. About it writes The Verge. The “shadow” Facebook, as...

Coronavirus-learning network has become the most powerful supercomputer

The coronavirus-learning network has become the most powerful supercomputer. Hundreds of thousands of volunteers and companies around the world have provided the power to simulate how the coronavirus protein enters a human cell. The power of a distributed computing network exceeded 2.4 exaflops (one million trillion or quintillion). This makes it more powerful than any...

Engineers have implemented an evolution system in AI development technology

Engineers have introduced an evolution system into the technology of artificial intelligence. This was reported by Science Mag with reference to Risto Miikkulainen from the University of Texas at Austin. Learning artificial intelligence systems requires a fairly large amount of time. In neural networks, artificial neurons rather weakly imitate the structure of the real brain,...

MIT Researchers Learn to Crack Dreams

Researchers at MIT have learned to crack dreams. They can introduce new scenes or smells, helping to improve the psychological state of people. The Dream Lab team notes that incorporating sounds and smells into people’s dreams can improve their psychological state. To this end, researchers focused on hypnagogy – an intermediate state between wakefulness and...
