A endless knot of the mind samsara picture i reblogged a few weeks ago an om symbol. I really want any of those and I think I might start with nothing and get something later in the center. One of the...
Quantum computing device hints at powerful future... →
scinerds: It uses the strange “quantum states” of matter to perform calculations in a way that, if scaled up, could vastly outperform conventional computers. The 6mm-by-6mm chip holds nine quantum devices, among them four “quantum bits” that do the calculations. The team said further scaling up to 10 qubits should be possible this year. Rather than the ones and zeroes of digital...
