Dell CTO: All computer systems open up, our job is to do that to the cloud

A computer system “starts with a limited set of components and limited optionality so that you have manageable parameters to get to a system outcome,” says Dell Technologies CTO, products and operations, John Roese. “As the system becomes stable, and the system gets utilized, what occurs is diversification of the creative element of what we…

Upgrading your computer to quantum

Computers that can use quantum mechanics’ properties solve problems faster than current technology. This is interesting, but they must overcome a massive disadvantage in doing so. Niobium nitride, a superconducting substance, can be added to a nitride-semiconductor substrate to form a flat, crystalline layer, as demonstrated by Japanese researchers, who may have provided the solution.…

Yes, You Can Use The Steam Deck As A Computer (Here’s How)

It only does…everything?Gif: KotakuThe more time I spend with Valve’s Steam Deck, the more I’m fascinated by it. While it’s obviously rad for the incredibly rich selection of games it plays, I’ve found it’s actually a really solid mini-PC for work, creation, and just everyday PC-related tasks, so today I’ll show you how to get…

Computer Science Proof Unveils Unexpected Form of Entanglement

Kristina Armitage for Quanta MagazineA striking new proof in quantum computational complexity might best be understood with a playful thought experiment. Run a bath, then dump a bunch of floating bar magnets into the water. Each magnet will flip its orientation back and forth, trying to align with its neighbors. It will push and pull…

How Computer Scientists Learned to Reinvent the Proof

Kristina Armitage/Quanta MagazineIf a million computer scientists had dinner together, they’d rack up an enormous bill. And if one of them was feeling particularly thrifty and wanted to check if the bill was correct, the process would be straightforward, if tedious: They’d have to go through the bill and add everything up, one line at…
