UK to build commercially available quantum computer

Christel Deskins

The government has backed a plan to build a quantum computer to serve businesses that want to experiment with quantum computing and how it can be harnessed in their industries.

With a £10m investment from government and industry, the quantum computer will be hosted in the National Quantum Computer Centre (NQCC) in Abingdon in Oxfordshire.

The computer is part of the government’s ambition for the UK to become a quantum-ready economy. In fact, science minister Amanda Solloway said the UK wants to be the world’s first quantum-ready economy.

“[This] could provide UK businesses and industries with billions of pounds worth of opportunities,” she said. “This a key part of our plan to build back better using the latest technology, attract the brightest and best talent to the UK, and encourage world-leading companies to invest here.”

Quantum technologies have the potential to complete complex calculations, which currently take days, orders of

Computer mouse co-inventor William English dies at 91

Christel Deskins

One of the pioneers of the modern computer interface has passed away: the New York Timesreports that William “Bill” English died on July 26th from respiratory failure at the age of 91. Alongside Douglas Englebart at the Stanford Research Institute, English helped develop the first computer mouse and put together a 1968 “Mother of All Demos” that outlined many concepts that would come to PCs over the decades, such as graphical user interfaces, online text editing, video calls and hypertext links.

William ‘Bill’ English

While Englebart was considered the visionary, English was one of the only people who truly grasped the ideas and had the talent to bring them to fruition. He built the mouse after Englebart drew a sketch of it, for example. While Englebart was demonstrating the concepts at that 1968 event, English was orchestrating things behind the scenes.

It’s not hard to see English’s legacy. While

Computer identifies differences in brains of patients with psychiatric disorders

Christel Deskins

Researchers in Japan have developed a machine-learning algorithm that distinguishes between different psychiatric disorders with similar symptoms, such as schizophrenia or autism.

Most of modern medicine has physical tests or objective techniques to define much of what afflicts our minds. But there are currently no blood or genetic tests, or impartial procedures that can definitively diagnose a mental illness. There are also none, as of late, that distinguish between different psychiatric disorders with similar symptoms. To tackle this issue, a study conducted by researchers at the University of Tokyo have combined machine learning with brain imaging tools to “redefine” this standard for diagnosing mental illnesses.

“Psychiatrists, including me, often talk about symptoms and behaviours with patients and their teachers, friends, and parents. We only meet patients in the hospital or clinic, not out in their daily lives. We have to make medical conclusions using subjective, secondhand information,” explained Dr Shinsuke

Computer IDs differences in brains of patients with schizophrenia or autism
MRI images like this one were screened by a machine learning computer algorithm designed by a research team at the University of Tokyo. The algorithm learned to identify the brains of nonpatients, patients diagnosed with autism, and patients diagnosed with schizophrenia based on subtle but statistically important differences in the thickness, volume, or surface area of certain regions of the brain. This tool may help make future mental health diagnosis more objective rather than relying solely on statements from patients and their families. Credit: Shinsuke Koike, CC-BY

Most of modern medicine has physical tests or objective techniques to define much of what ails people. Yet, there is currently no blood or genetic test, or impartial procedure that can definitively diagnose a mental illness, and certainly none to distinguish between different psychiatric disorders with similar symptoms. Experts at the University of Tokyo are combining machine learning with brain imaging tools to

Russell Kirsch, computer scientist who scanned first digital image, dies at 91

Christel Deskins

Russell Kirsch was a 27-year-old computer scientist and, not incidentally, a new father when he did one day in early 1957 what many parents do, and brought a photograph of his baby to the office.

His office was the National Bureau of Standards – now the National Institute of Standards and Technology – where Kirsch was one of the few people authorized to work on the Standards Electronic Automatic Computer, or SEAC, the first programmable computer in the United States.

Although rudimentary compared with modern computers, SEAC was revolutionary for its time. Large enough to fill a room, it was used for purposes including Social Security accounting, Air Force logistics and computations related to the hydrogen bomb.

Kirsch – who joked in an oral history with the Smithsonian Institution that he could “confess to having stolen machine time from purportedly more useful products, like the thermonuclear weapons calculations” – envisioned

Samsung DeX 101: Turn a Galaxy phone or tablet into your primary computer

Christel Deskins

The promise of using your phone as your primary computer is a reality and with flagship Samsung phones priced at more than $1,000 using your phone as your computer may be a way to save money.

Modern smartphones are more powerful than the computers used just a few years ago, but over the past decade, we have seen unsuccessful attempts to turn our handheld devices into computers. Recall the Palm Foleo in 2007, the Redfly Mobile Companion in 2009, or the Motorola Atrix in 2011.
