Microsoft makes play for next wave of computing with quantum computing toolkit - 1 views

  •  
    At its Ignite conference today, Microsoft announced its moves to embrace the next big thing in computing: quantum computing. Later this year, Microsoft will release a new quantum computing programming language, with full Visual Studio integration, along with a quantum computing simulator. With these, developers will be able to both develop and debug quantum programs implementing quantum algorithms.

    "Publishing industry exerts too much influence over what scientists choose to study, which is ultimately bad for science itself"
  •  
    On a related topic - a nice read written in 1939 from Abraham Flexner the founder of Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, home of some great minds on the "Usefulness of Useless Knowledge". Enjoy

Black Hole Power: How String Theory Idea Could Lead to New Thermal-Energy Harvesting Te... - 0 views

  •  
    A new class of exotic materials could find its way into next-generation technologies that efficiently convert waste heat into electrical current according to new research. Both the exotic materials and the means by which they generate electricity rely on a hybrid of advanced concepts-including string theory combined with black holes combined with cutting-edge condensed matter physics.
