Quantum computer: we’re planning to create one that acts like a brain

The human brain has amazing capabilities making it in many ways more powerful than the world’s most advanced computers. So it’s not surprising that engineers have long been trying to copy it. Today, artificial neural networks inspired by the structure of the brain are used to tackle some of the most difficult problems in artificial intelligence (AI). But this approach typically involves building s...[Read More]

Ultra-Light Start – Google’s quantum PC, super-expensive iPhone cans, and Rolls Royce cocktails
