Quantum Super Computer Detects and Self-corrects its Errors

Quantum Super Computer Detects and Self-corrects its Errors

How would you feel when the one thing that separates humans from machines is drawn out. Feverish? Happy? Weird? Yes, this new generation  quantum computer will do the irreversible. It has got conscience. It can self-check for errors and suppresses them without human invigilation.

Ateam of quantum physicists in Martinis Lab have come a step closer in creating the circuitry that would allow them to process super computing done by quantum computers. The revolution is promised by the new quantum bits (qubits) compared to the previously done classical computing. Qubits infuse the system with high levels of reliability and speed, thus building foundations for large scale superconducting quantum computers.Till now computing has been done by classical methods in which the bits were either in states 0 or 1, but qubits exist at all the positions simultaneously, in different dimensions. This special property of being omnipresent is called ‘superpositioning’. However, one of the difficulties is keeping the qubits stable to reproduce same result each time. This superpositioning characteristic makes qubits prone to ‘flipping’, therefore making it difficult to work with.

Julian Kelly, graduate student researcher and co-lead author of a research paper that was published in the journal Nature said:

It’s hard to process information if it disappears.

​Don’t laugh: Google’s Parsey McParseface is a serious IQ boost for computers

​Don’t laugh: Google’s Parsey McParseface is a serious IQ boost for computers

Google has just created possibly the world’s best computer program designed to understand the English language but this cutting-edge technology may just be the tip of the iceberg.

A new theory could be about to unlock the secrets of how naturally human language really works, putting an end to a question that has troubled linguists for more than half a century.

By empowering artificial intelligence with these secrets, it may finally be possible to create a ‘bolloxometer’, which could instantly cut through the rhetoric of language online to determine its reliability.

No more lying politicians. No more lawyers spinning a story. No more advertisers hoodwinking us into buying their products. Just switch on the bolloxometer and watch the truth unfold.

Google researchers are getting a bit of software widely noticed by calling it Parsey McParseface.  They picked the name on a whim after they had failed to come up with one that suited after 18 months of work on the project. It comes after a public vote almost saw a £200 million British polar research vessel named “Boaty McBoatface” after more than 100,000 people voted for the name.

Parsey McParseface has major importance.  Parsing a piece of language correctly is the key to getting the computer to truly understand what language means and to be able to act on it.

Up to now, machine parsers have been limited to working out the ‘parts of speech’ of words and their structural interrelationships within a sentence.  That’s useful.  For example, in speech recognition, the computer can reject analyses of speech sounds that add up to ungrammatical sentences.

But there are problems. The computer cannot easily reject grammatical-but-nonsensical analyses.  And even the best parsers struggle with very long sentences and with unusual constructions and idioms.

Actually the statistical methods had to be adopted because linguistics failed to develop a full set of grammar rules from the ideas of Noam Chomsky .

Google CEO: “Era Of Computers Will End Very Soon, AI Will Rule”

Google CEO: “Era Of Computers Will End Very Soon, AI Will Rule”

According to Google CEO Sundar Pichai, the next big evolution in the technology will be Artifical Intelligence. As of now, the devices represent different technologies, however, in the future, the concept of the devices might fade away and it will be taken over by the artificial intelligence in the different forms.

Over the time, the devices in any form, mobile or a wristband, would not just play the role of merely being a device but they will work as a personal assistant in the future powered by AI.

If we look at the paradigm shift trend in the world of technology, most of the major technical giants like Facebook, Microsoft, Amazon, Google etc. are moving towards a technological shift in AI.

Until now, Google had the largest cup of tea in terms of AI but it looks like other technological giants are not too far behind. Facebook is also putting a lot of efforts in machine learning and artificial intelligence. Also, it is building a smart assistant called “M”. Cortana from Microsoft and Siri from Apple are not new to the market.

How Industrial Revolution 4.0 will Prove far more Divisive

How Industrial Revolution 4.0 will Prove far more Divisive

The “Fourth Industrial Revolution,” as described by the founder and executive chairman of World Economic Forum, will fundamentally alter the way we live, work and relate to one another. Here’s how…

The world has undergone three industrial revolutions that caused a lot of disruption, but also dramatically changed our lives. The First Industrial Revolution used water and steam power to mechanize production. The Second Industrial Revolution used electric power to create mass production. The Third Industrial Revolution used electronics, digital and information technology to automate production.
