Intel processors are still vulnerable to attack according to computer scientists at KU Leuven. Computer scientists at KU Leuven have once again exposed a security flaw in Intel processors. Jo Van Bulck, Frank Piessens, and their colleagues in Austria, the United States, and Australia gave the manufacturer one year’s time […]

Looking a bit like a bowl of spaghetti, this map shows the general scheme of the US stock market — formally known as the National Market System — as described by a team of scientist at the University of Vermont and The MITRE Corporation. Spread out between four communities in northern […]

Researchers from MIT, Google, and elsewhere have designed a novel method for verifying when quantum processors have accurately performed complex computations that classical computers can’t. They validate their method on a custom system (pictured) that’s able to capture how accurately a photonic chip (“PNP”) computed a notoriously difficult quantum problem. […]

Researchers have created a new open-source data-management system for scientists, with the hope that the system might make collaboration easier. Simplifying How Scientists Share Data Data is often at the heart of science – researchers track velocities, measure light coming from stars, analyze heart rates and cholesterol levels and scan […]

When satellites break, which is surprisingly often, there isn’t much you […]

Google announced this fall to much fanfare that it had demonstrated “quantum supremacy” – that is, it performed a specific quantum computation far faster than the best classical computers could achieve. IBM promptly critiqued the claim, saying that its own classical supercomputer could perform the computation at nearly the same speed […]
