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.
Even if your next computer isn't made of water, it may still outpace Moore's law. IBM has rededicated resources and personnel to its quantum computing project in the hope that a five-year push will produce tangible and profound impr... 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
