Worlds smallest molecular transistor reboots Moore’s Law

WHY THIS MATTERS IN BRIEF Scientists have demonstrated a new 0.167nm transistor.   It’s no secret that companies like Intel have been finding it increasingly difficult and, perhaps more pertinently, costly to keep pace with the expectations of Moore’s Law so it came as no surprise when in early 2016 a consortium...

Google’s new quantum computer is 100 million times faster than your PC

WHY THIS MATTERS IN BRIEF Googles D-Wave quantum computer breaks the speed barrier and leaves everything else in its dust.   Google announced a breakthrough in the field of Quantum computing on Wednesday. The company thinks it’s found a quantum algorithm that solves problems 100 million times faster than conventional processes. If...
