Quantum Computing Becomes More Practical

IBM researchers say they’ve found a better way to detect and correct errors that could compromise quantum computing. Specifically, they can detect two types of error at the same time, something previously not possible. Quantum computing is based around a simple, if somewhat mindnumbing concept. ‘Traditional’ computing breaks information down into bits, which can each […]

Tesla Brings Batteries To The Home

Tesla is launching the “Powerwall”, a high capacity battery for powering a home. It’s designed to work with mains (household line) power, solar panels, or a mix of the two. The basics of Powerwall are nothing new: each battery unit will actually be made up of multiple lithium-ion batteries of the type Tesla already uses […]
