Why Artificial Intelligence Like AlphaZero Has Trouble With the Real World
The latest artificial intelligence systems start from zero knowledge of a game and grow to world-beating in a matter of hours. But researchers are struggling to apply these systems beyond the arcade.
Quantum Algorithms Struggle Against Old Foe: Clever Computers
The quest for “quantum supremacy” – unambiguous proof that a quantum computer does something faster than an ordinary computer – has paradoxically led to a boom in quasi-quantum classical algorithms.
Job One for Quantum Computers: Boost Artificial Intelligence
The fusion of quantum computing and machine learning has become a booming research area. Can it possibly live up to its high expectations?
The Era of Quantum Computing Is Here. Outlook: Cloudy
Quantum computers should soon be able to beat classical computers at certain basic tasks. But before they’re truly powerful, researchers have to overcome a number of fundamental roadblocks.
