Microsoft made Mesh generally available. Why this is an important milestone? Mesh is about the importance of deep human connections in the workplace and how they are crucial for increasing engagement, stimulating performance, and retaining talent. It helps in that remote and hybrid work arrangements no longer to pose challenges in building personal connections. According to Microsoft's Work Trend Index report, 43 percent of leaders find relationship building to be a significant challenge in remote and hybrid work - so this problem needed to be addressed. To address this issue, Microsoft has introduced "Microsoft Mesh," a technology that powers 3D immersive experiences to make virtual connections feel more like face-to-face interactions.
There has been a breakthrough in achieving quantum coherence of entangled multiexcitons at room temperature, which is crucial for quantum computing and sensing technologies.
One the challenges with leveraging quantum computing stems from the error-prone nature of the basic unit of quantum information, quantum bits, or qubits. By leveraging the unique properties of superposition, simultaneously existing as a state of 0 and 1, as well as entanglement, qubits enable complex computations in fields such as finance. There is a trade off however that, currently, a large amount of effort must go into quantum error correction for this to be useful.
The story started with TCL RayNeo X2 and TCL NXTWEAR S at the beginning of the year, continued by TCL announcing RayNeo Air 2. Yes, you spotted well, they never had a RayNeo Air 1 Although they claim it is lighter, sleeker, advanced display and audio, etc. compared to the previous one.
Azure Quantum Elements is a new service that integrates the latest breakthroughs in high-performance computing, artificial intelligence, and quantum computing to accelerate scientific discovery in chemistry and materials science.
Every morning when I check the news I see another story about concerns and horror stories in AI, talking about how it will end the world.
The first of the key topics discussed by the brain trust really focused on the complexities and challenges associated with achieving reproducibility in the context of AI models.
Google announced plans to add support for quantum-resistant encryption algorithms in its Chrome browser, starting with version 116.
Microsoft announced the general availability of the Azure NDV5 VM series. Each NDV5 VM comes with 8 NVIDIA H100 GPUs, each providing 3,958 teraFLOPS (8-bit FP8), 80GB of GPU memory, and 3.35TB/s of GPU memory bandwidth.
Analog Iterative Machines introduce a new approach to optimization problems, which are often hard to solve using conventional digital computers. The approach is based on analog iterative machines, which are devices that use physical phenomena to perform computations in parallel and continuously.
