Researchers on two continents are reporting two big breakthroughs in quantum computing today — a quantum system built on the familiar von Neumann processor-memory architecture , and a working digital quantum simulator built on a quantum-computer platform. Although these developments are still constrained to the lab, they’re yet another sign that a quantum leap in computing may be just around the corner.
Chip for Quantum Computing The two black squares are the qubits, or processor; the center meandering line is the quantum bus; and the lateral meandering lines are the quantum memory.

A change that will tear down silos, empower users and create opportunities to take software and collaboration to new levels.
When it comes to contracting for a computer service, there is little choice but hoping for the best.
Creeping Balkanization is the internet’s worst enemy. As worldwide literacy grows exponentially, for the web, such expansion results in increasing pressure from corporate interests and regulatory nationalisms.

Social networking has become a pervasive part of our everyday online experience, and by extension, that means the analysis and application of social data is an essential component of business. In the following interview, " Social Network Analysis for Startups " co-author Maksim Tsvetovat ( @maksim2042 ) offers a primer on social network analysis (SNA) and how it has relevance beyond social-networking services. What is social network analysis (SNA)?
