Computer model shows moon's core surrounded by liquid and it's caused by Earth's gravity
Scientists track quantum errors in real time
(Phys.org) —Scientists at Yale University have demonstrated the ability to track real quantum errors as they occur, a major step in the development of reliable quantum computers. They report their results ...
Uncertainty gives scientists new confidence in search for novel materials
Scientists at Stanford University and the Department of Energy's SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory have found a way to estimate uncertainties in computer calculations that are widely used to speed the ...
Earth-crushing pressure? This electron spin doesn't care
(Phys.org) —To fully understand something, it is often instructive to view it at its extremes. How do materials behave when their bits are forced much closer together than is comfortable? How do electrons ...
Simulations show Mercury may have been victim of hit-and-run collision
Remote quantum applications, teleportation enabled by calling long distance between superconducting qubits
(Phys.org) —Researchers have developed a way for superconducting quantum chips to talk to each other over large distances through an optical fibre, allowing quantum entanglement or teleportation - both ...
Ask the crowd: Robots learn faster, better with online helpers
University of Washington computer scientists have shown that crowdsourcing can be a quick and effective way to teach a robot how to complete tasks. Instead of learning from just one human, robots could one ...
New study suggests more and longer atmospheric stagnation events due to global warming
Researchers unveil experimental 36-core chip
The more cores—or processing units—a computer chip has, the bigger the problem of communication between cores becomes. For years, Li-Shiuan Peh, the Singapore Research Professor of Electrical Engineering ...
