Quantum computing may someday blow away today's smartest machines. It's weird and heavy on the physics, but Microsoft thinks you can handle it.
Big Blue sets a five-year plan to figure out the manufacturing technology for the great-grandchild of today's chip tech -- and the even more different generations beyond that.
The D-Wave Two quantum computer clocks in no faster than a standard PC, but those already well-known results still leave us scratching our heads over speed testing.
The spy agency is reportedly in a race to build its own quantum computer to stay ahead of others seeking to own the mother of all decryption machines.
The search giant's new Quantum Artificial Intelligence Lab will be home to a new supercomputer from D-Wave Systems.
Researchers at Harvard and Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics make progress on scalable designs for potentially super powerful computers that harness the weird laws of quantum mechanics.
With its latest research, Big Blue says it's reached device performance close to the minimum requirements for implementing a "practical quantum computer." But many hurdles remain.
Seeking to keep Moore's Law on pace, researchers have developed a repeatable technique for assembling a single-atom version of the transistor--the building block of semiconductors and computers.
Swiss researchers have made a prototype microchip using a substance called molybdenite, which could prove to be a rival to both silicon and graphene.
The transparent, super-strong material that won UK scientists the Nobel last month could be on prototype Samsung mobiles by next summer, according to one of the winners.
