Quantum computing will not rescue Moore’s Law

I found this video on quantum computing educational.  It confirmed some things that I've been pondering about quantum computing for a while, notably its limitations, which are discussed after about the five minute mark. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g_IaVepNDT4 The strength of quantum computing is that it makes use of superpositions, the fact that quantum particles can be in multiple … Continue reading Quantum computing will not rescue Moore’s Law

Cosmic rays becoming an increasing problem for microchips. Threat to Moore’s Law?

When I first saw the title of this article, I thought it might be an alarmist piece of some kind about passenger safety from higher radiation doses while in the air, but it's actually about a broader and more serious problem: The $8.5M Race to Protect Planes From Cosmic Rays. It’s an invisible, but looming threat … Continue reading Cosmic rays becoming an increasing problem for microchips. Threat to Moore’s Law?
