### The Quest to Quantify Quantumness

What makes a quantum computer more powerful than a classical computer? It’s a surprisingly subtle question that physicists are still grappling with, decades into the quantum age.

### The Deep Link Equating Math Proofs and Computer Programs

Mathematical logic and the code of computer programs are, in an exact way, mirror images of each other.

### Machine Learning Aids Classical Modeling of Quantum Systems

By using “classical shadows,” ordinary computers can beat quantum computers at the tricky task of understanding quantum behaviors.

### New Codes Could Make Quantum Computing 10 Times More Efficient

Quantum computing is still really, really hard. But the rise of a powerful class of error-correcting codes suggests that the task might be slightly more feasible than many feared.

### Data Compression Drives the Internet. Here’s How It Works.

One student’s desire to get out of a final exam led to the ubiquitous algorithm that shrinks data without sacrificing information.

### Physicists Create Elusive Particles That Remember Their Pasts

In two landmark experiments, researchers used quantum processors to engineer exotic particles that have captivated physicists for decades. The work is a step toward crash-proof quantum computers.

### The Most Important Machine That Was Never Built

When he invented Turing machines in 1936, Alan Turing also invented modern computing.

### Bob Metcalfe, Ethernet Pioneer, Wins Turing Award

The American researcher was recognized for his central role in inventing, standardizing and commercializing the ubiquitous networking technology.

### New Chip Expands the Possibilities for AI

An energy-efficient chip called NeuRRAM fixes an old design flaw to run large-scale AI algorithms on smaller devices, reaching the same accuracy as wasteful digital computers.
