When quantum computers forget: Overcoming decoherence

LoRa takes a trip to the moon and back, chirping all the way

LoRa takes a trip to the moon and back, chirping all the way

LoRa wireless that's used in IoT networks is known as a low-power, long-range technology—long-range enough to carry a message between Earth and the moon.

Quantum primacy: Is it real (and if so, does it matter)?

Quantum primacy: Is it real (and if so, does it matter)?

Developers of quantum computers are vying to show that theirs can out-perform classical computers but perhaps not replace them.

Department of Defense works to integrate battlefield intel networks

The goal of the DoD'S Joint All-Domain Command and Control (JADC2) initiative is a concept quite familiar to enterprise IT pros: wholly integrated networks that are fast, reliable, flexible, scalable, and secure.

Experimental Morpheus CPU is ‘mind-bogglingly terrible’ to crack

Experimental Morpheus CPU is ‘mind-bogglingly terrible’ to crack

Researchers say their Morpheus processor changes its underlying implementation hundreds of times per second, giving attackers a very small time window to create and execute exploits.

Could antiferromagnetic chips replace silicon?

Could antiferromagnetic chips replace silicon?

Attractive properties of antiferromagnetic memory would include greater density of transistors than silicon provides and be immune to magnets erasing data.
