Vulnerability of cloud service hardware uncovered

Field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) are kind of like a computer manufacturer's Lego bricks: electronic components that can be employed in a more flexible way than other computer chips. Even large data centers that are ...

Improving quantum computers

For decades, experts have predicted that quantum computers will someday perform difficult tasks, such as simulating complex chemical systems, that can't be done by conventional computers. But so far, these machines haven't ...

Blind quantum computing for everyone

(Phys.org)—For the first time, physicists have demonstrated that clients who possess only classical computers—and no quantum devices—can outsource computing tasks to quantum servers that perform blind quantum computing. ...

Making energy-harvesting computers reliable

A revolutionary and emerging class of energy-harvesting computer systems require neither a battery nor a power outlet to operate, instead operating by harvesting energy from their environment. While radio waves, solar energy, ...

Detecting program-tampering in the cloud

For small and midsize organizations, the outsourcing of demanding computational tasks to the cloud—huge banks of computers accessible over the Internet—can be much more cost-effective than buying their own hardware. But ...

Writing programs using ordinary language

In a pair of recent papers, researchers at MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory have demonstrated that, for a few specific tasks, it's possible to write computer programs using ordinary language rather ...
