Computer Science

  • In the last episode of Science Next, we learned how quantum computers could solve more complicated problems much faster than today's computers thanks to a quantum mechanics phenomenon called superposition.
  • Big tech companies like Google and IBM are pouring billions into the study of the tiny, subatomic particles involved in quantum mechanics. Why? So they can stay in the international race to build the first universal quantum computer.
  • In the fields of medicine and pharmacology, drugs have historically been discovered either by identifying active ingredients from traditional remedies, or by serendipity, similar to how penicillin was discovered in 1928. But modern scientists have found an alternative method that makes the hunt for new pharmaceuticals quicker, cheaper and more effective.
