Quantum ‘hack’ to unleash computing power

Modifying surface codes can improve error correction 400 percent. The instability of qubits – the building blocks of quantum computers – means they are susceptible to error. Our physicists have found that tweaking error coding can open the door to huge efficiency gains.

Quantum algorithm could help AI think faster

One of the ways that computers ‘think’ is by analysing relationships within large sets of data. CQT’s Jansen (Zhikuan) Zhao, Anupam Prakash and their collaborator have shown that quantum computers can do one such analysis faster than classical computers, for a wider array of data types than was previously expected.

A High(er)-Definition Nose — Drexel’s MXene Material Could Improve Sensors That Sniff

Sensors that sniff out chemicals in the air to warn us about everything from fires to carbon monoxide to drunk drivers to explosive devices hidden in luggage have improved so much that they can even detect diseases on a person’s breath. Researchers from Drexel University and the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology have made a discovery that could make our best “chemical noses” even more sensitive.
