I recently visited HP Labs and spoke with Stan Williams, senior fellow at Hewlett-Packard and director of Quantum Science Research, about an incredible semiconductor device — the memristor.Until fairly recently, the memristor, short for memory resistor, was a mythical electronic component. It had been predicted to exist by a mathematician, Leon Chua, a professor at UC Berkeley, in an 1971 paper.
Moore's Law wasn't just about building better transistors; it was a way of organizing the tech business. What happens when that computing strength matters less to a company, thanks to cloud computing? Read Post
D-Wave Systems is moving closer all the time to commercializing its cloud quantum computing service. In the process, it is demonstrating just how fast quantum computing science is developing. Read Post
