What's up in
Computer scientists established a new boundary on computationally verifiable knowledge. In doing so, they solved major open problems in quantum mechanics and pure mathematics.
By ignoring their goals, evolutionary algorithms have solved longstanding challenges in artificial intelligence.
The universe of problems that a computer can check has grown. The researchers’ secret ingredient? Quantum entanglement.
Quantum computers can’t selectively forget information. A new algorithm for multiplication shows a way around that problem.
By chopping up large numbers into smaller ones, researchers have rewritten a fundamental mathematical speed limit.
