Quantum computers can’t selectively forget information. A new algorithm for multiplication shows a way around that problem.
To make headway on the mystery of consciousness, some researchers are trying a rigorous new way to test competing theories.
Neural networks can be as unpredictable as they are powerful. Now mathematicians are beginning to reveal how a neural network’s form will influence its function.
Neural networks are famously incomprehensible, so Been Kim is developing a “translator for humans.”
In a Paris lab, researchers have shown for the first time that quantum methods of transmitting information are superior to classical ones.
Digital security depends on the difficulty of factoring large numbers. A new proof shows why one method for breaking digital encryption won’t work.
