Microsoft Will Use Quantum Tools with Classical Computing

Microsoft’s topological qubit architecture is not ready. Microsofts Nadella highlighted a “quantum on classical” approach. Quantum tools will be used alongside classical computation to optimize the algorithms for simulating complex phenomena. Quantum-inspired algorithms can optimize MRI scans. Once the scan is done, the 3-D visualization can be viewed using Microsoft’s HoloLens augmented-reality headset. “Working with …

When future historians look back at 2010-2050

When historians look back at the period from 1490 to 1530, the main way they frame it is that it was part of the Renaissance (1400-1700) and the beginning of the Age of Exploration (1500-1800). The successful Spacex BFR (150 ton fully reusable rocket) will be part of starting a true space age. With the …
