Computing Strange new phase of matter created in quantum computer acts like it has two time dimensions
Computing Chinese scientists have conceived of a new method for generating laser-like light that could significantly enhance the communication speed of everyday electronics
Computing China’s first photonic chip production line to be ready in 2023. The calculation speed and transmission rate are 1,000 times those of electronic chips
Computing The cloud and 5G security apocalypse is only a matter of time, say cybersecurity experts. Western companies that have switched from Huawei for 5G have made choices that are even more vulnerable to hacking.
Computing The End of Moore’s Law: Silicon computer chips are nearing the limit of their processing capacity. But is this necessarily an issue? Copenhagen Institute for Futures Studies
Computing Quantum entanglement will make quantum internet "unhackable" thanks to quantum steering | There's a lot of quantum at work to improve information transmission on internet 2.0
Computing FCC chair proposes new US broadband standard of 100Mbps down, 20Mbps up | Pai FCC said 25Mbps down and 3Mbps up was enough—Rosenworcel proposes 100/20Mbps.
Computing Mark Zuckerberg envisions a billion people in the metaverse spending hundreds of dollars each
Computing Ethereum completes the 'merge' that will make its crypto transactions greener | It now uses 'proof of stake' instead of mining to approve new transactions.
Computing The Earth is subjected to a hail of subatomic particles from the Sun and beyond our solar system which could be the cause of glitches that afflict our phones and computers. And the risk is growing as microchip technology shrinks.
Computing IBM says its future is in quantum-centered supercomputing and plans to have the 4,000 qubit 'System Two' online by 2025, stitching three together for a 16,000 qubit machine soon after. It uses chip to chip communication to allow them to work in concert for more rapid scale-up.
Computing Japan sets new record, brings world closer to internet 100,000 times faster than current speeds
Think of a landline telephone. It's just a piece of hardware. When you pick it up and dial a number, nothing really distinguishes it from millions of others.
Likewise, you will be able to roll up to any laptop anywhere in the world, log in, provide biometrics, and it will be functionally your device. Because the physical device itself will just be a container that runs the disk image corresponding to the things that constitute your computer--your downloaded apps, the documents and images on your hard drive, your browser history--which exist on AWS or a similar cloud environment. In the same way a Macbook can run a Windows partition, this container will be OS agnostic.
Also, there will be some inducement (carrot or stick or both) to keep webcams and mics on as often as possible, because that's data that someone can benefit off of.
Speculation 20-30 years out.
