Communications, transportation, and commerce have been inextricably intertwined since the beginning of human history until quite recently, and they still remain closely related today.

“The success of the first electronic telegraph line in 1844 opened an era of modern communication in America. Before the telegraph there existed no separation between transportation and communication. Information traveled only as fast as the messenger who carried it.” Media and the American Mind (Czitrom, D. J., 1982)

This reality was even codified in the Dewey Decimal library classification system: 380 Commerce, communications, transportation

  • 'Poor man's qubit' can solve quantum problems...
    on September 18, 2019 at 5:14 pm

    Researchers have built and demonstrated the first hardware for a probabilistic computer, a possible way to bridge the gap between classical and quantum computing.

  • Brain-computer interfaces without the mess
    on September 18, 2019 at 3:24 pm

    It sounds like science fiction: controlling electronic devices with brain waves. But researchers have developed a new type of electroencephalogram (EEG) electrode that can do just that, without the sticky gel required for conventional electrodes. Even better, the devices work through a full head of hair. The researchers now report on the flexible electrodes, which could someday be used in brain-computer interfaces to drive cars or move artificial limbs.

    on September 18, 2019 at 2:02 pm

    Physicists and computer scientists have developed a new approach to the problem of dark matter and dark energy in the universe. Using machine learning tools, they programmed computers to teach themselves how to extract the relevant information from maps of the universe.

    on September 17, 2019 at 2:06 pm

    Researchers have devised a new method -- called image charge detection -- to detect electrons' transitions to quantum states. Electrons can serve as quantum bits, the smallest unit of quantum information; these bits are foundational to larger computational systems. Quantum computers may be used to understand the mechanism of superconductivity, cryptography, artificial intelligence, among other applications.

    on September 16, 2019 at 12:14 pm

    The characterization of complex noise in quantum computers is a critical step toward making the systems more precise.
