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.
Today’s theme is beyond Moore’s Law. For almost 50 years, tech has progressed under the dogma that computing power will double every two years. But Moore’s Law is approaching its physical limit. What comes next? Physicist and futuri... 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
