There may be only one way a quantum computer could more accurately predict an election’s outcome than a professional poll: by knowing perhaps too much about you. Luckily, that’s a feasibility.
Using a method called quantum annealing, D-Wave's researchers demonstrated that a quantum computational advantage could be achieved over classical means.
If a quantum system can predict the locations of air molecules in a hurricane, you’d think predicting election results would be a much simpler problem. A quantum physicist and a neuroscientist tell us otherwise.

Here's what we know about Apple's new M1 SoC.
CEO Tim Cook and Company show off next generation Mac computers and a whole lot more...
AMD hopes that by adding Athlon and Ryzen 3000 C-series processors to the lineup, AMD wants to move Chromebooks out of the realm of everyday tasks such as web browsing and casual gaming, and offer silicon capable of handling heavy multitasking and smooth gaming.
AMD takes on Intel's Xeon processors with the new Threadripper PRO 3000WX series.
We've known it was going to happen for years, and that day has now come. Apple has announced the fourth evolution for the Mac -- a slow, but inevitable move away from Intel to Apple Silicon.
AMD is pitching its new Ryzen PRO 4000 processors as "the new standard for modern business PCs" offering what is claimed to be the best performing processor, the most advanced technology, and, perhaps more significant for business, the most modern security.
AMD's Ryzen PRO 4000 chips, aimed at business users who demand security-centric features and enterprise-grade reliability.
The spread of COVID-19 has a small silver lining: highlighting how innovative humankind can be under pressure. Here are our favorite examples.
A timeline of Google Maps through the years since it was launched in 2005.
We have the technology. We can build it. We can make it better, smaller, and more plastic than the prototype demo. But we can be demo accurate, too. Our windows are as shattered as our souls.
A sneak peak into the lab where the sole purpose is to get things to break.
A tour through some of most popular - and most unusual - Windows devices of the last two decades, from Tablet PCs to the Surface Duo.

IonQ CEO Peter Chapman argues that the road to adoption for quantum computing is happening faster than originally thought due to the cloud. Here's Chapman's take on adoption, enterprise applications, innovation, and the future developer. Read more: https://zd.net/2K0rjve
CES is as much a showcase for the latest business technology as it is for consumer electronics. Enterprise technologies like AI, data analytics, and 5G underpin the latest IoT gadgets, smart devices, and autonomous vehicles and will be on full display at the all digital CES 2021.
Tiernan Ray explains that software startup Zapata Computing of Boston, which makes developer tools to program quantum computers, says companies need to get a handle on things like data cleaning and prep now if they want to be prepared for when the most powerful quantum machines arrive, perhaps in a decade’s time.

A few hundred small servers, scattered throughout the country and linked by fiber optic cable, should theoretically be capable of providing the same value to customers as one hyperscale data center. Just because something can be done, however, should it?
The original idea of the “edge cloud” was to extend the reach of data center services in telecommunications networks, by positioning compute and storage resources closer to customers. That’s part of what 5G was supposed to be about. But now that content providers are leading the way in fiber optic cable investments, will the edge eventually be closer to them instead? Scott Fulton reports. Read more: https://zd.net/302L2NF
The EU competition watchdog is looking at whether top IoT providers are building unfair monopolies.
How do you measure crowds without violating privacy? How about using a wireless band?
It will start building the network in the second half of this year.
The medical research industry has been dealt a critical blow by the pandemic. Clinical trials have to be restarted, in an era where patients are less willing to risk their lives further by visiting a clinic. A combination of telecommunications, mobile apps, and wearable devices could reassemble a shattered industry. But first, research technology must take a leap of faith.
