Over at MIT Technology Review, Tom Simonite interviews Carver Mead, the computer scientist who came up with the term, “Moore’s Law” on the topic of quantum computing.

Quantum Memory Takes a Leap Forward

Over the BBC, James Morgan writes that researchers have overcome a key barrier to ultrafast computers with a key breakthrough that enabled fragile quantum memory state to be held stable at room temperature for a “world record” 39 minutes.

The Observer Effect – A Sci-Fi Original
