Award-winning science writer Rowan Jacobsen will present a talk titled “The Nature of Nature — What Happens When We Start Engineering the Wild?” on Thursday, Sept. 5 at 7:30 p.m. in the Whitney Humanities Center, 53 Wall St. The event is free and open to the public; tickets are available here.
Imagine if all our scientific theories and models told us only about averages: if the best weather forecasts could only give you the average daily amount of rain expected over the next month, or if astronomers could only predict the average time between solar eclipses.
At the core of quantum computing is the qubit. The best ones have a few defining traits, and scientists are looking to everything from lasers to Russian diamonds to help refine the best qubits for the next generation of quantum computing.
In the world of quantum computing, diamonds might be an...
