Microsoft releases quantum computing development kit preview

At the Microsoft Ignite Conference in September, Microsoft let it be known it was going to be a player in the future of quantum computing, and today the company took another step toward that goal when

Researchers create a light-based key distribution system for quantum encryption

Researchers at Duke University, OSU and Oak Ridge National Laboratory have solved one of the biggest problems with new forms of quantum encryption: quantum key distribution. QKD is the process of dist

IBM makes 20 qubit quantum computing machine available as a cloud service

IBM has been offering quantum computing as a cloud service since last year when it came out with a 5 qubit version of the advanced computers. Today, the company announced that it’s releasing 20-

Volkswagen and Google to bring quantum computing benefits to cars

Computers have changed cars at least as much as they’ve changed our daily lives, but a new partnership between Google and Volkswagen could transform transportation further still: The two are col

Intel moves towards production quantum computing with new 17-qubit chip

Intel's quantum computing efforts have yielded a new 17-qubit chip, which the company has just delivered to its partner in that field, QuTech. It's not a major advance in the actual computing power or

Microsoft places its bets on quantum computing

At its Ignite conference, Microsoft today put its stake in the ground and discussed its progress in building a quantum computer and giving developers tools to experiment with this new computing paradi

IBM adds new API to quantum computing cloud service

IBM announced today that it was updating its Quantum Experience cloud with a new API that it hopes will increase the abilities of researchers and other interested parties to build more sophisticated a

D-Wave ups its quantum annealing game to 2000 qubits

Universal quantum computers don’t exist, but that hasn’t stopped D-Wave from carving out its own place in the quantum computing market. Today, the 17-year-old company is announcing its f

Why we are still light years away from full artificial intelligence

The future is here... or is it? With so many articles proliferating the media space on how humans are at the cusp of full AI, it’s no wonder that we believe that the future -- which is full of robot

Google starts experimenting with quantum-secure connections in Chrome

If quantum computing ever lives up to its promise (and that’s still a big ‘if’ at this stage), somebody could use this technology to retroactively break any communications that were

Post-quantum crypto startup PQ bags $10.3M Series A

Being first to market with complex technology doesn't usually make for a simple sales proposition. Nor does trying to pioneer an alternative approach as a small security startup vs established industr

IBM launches quantum computing as a cloud service

Quantum computing is still very much in the early research stage, but IBM is hoping to accelerate the progress around it by making a quantum computer available to researchers as a cloud service. It is

In Apple vs. the FBI, technology wins

Government policy and technology usually coexist in harmony. But occasionally, they get into a brawl. When this happens, policy may win a battle or two, but, ultimately, technology always wins. It sim

Inside the Starburst-sized box that could save the Internet

Cybercrime is costing us millions. Hacks drain the average American firm of $15.4 million per year, and, in the resulting panic, companies often spend more than $1.9 million to resolve a single attack

AI is closer than we know

Artificial intelligence is one of the hottest subjects these days, and recent advances in technology make AI even closer to reality than most of us can imagine. The subject really got traction when St

A Turning Point For Quantum Computing

Quantum computing is moving from theory and experimentation into engineering and applications. But now that quantum computing is going mainstream, it is incumbent on businesses and governments to unde

IBM Researchers Can Now Spot Errors In Quantum Calculations

IBM researchers say they've solved a big piece of the quantum computing puzzle with a new system for protecting against errors that can crop up among quantum bits, or 'qubits.' The issue the team i
