For years, Quantum’s news cycle has been dominated by headlines about the record-breaking system. Contrary to the trend of packing processors with more and more qubits, or “qubits,” this year researchers are moving away from the hype train and into the real world, opting for fewer but higher-quality qubits.
Additionally, the company announced new chips designed to connect directly with each other. The move is anticipated to expedite the transition to “modular” quantum computers and significantly aid the machines’ scaling along the way. Read the complete text.
We possess multiple biological clocks. In addition to the one that advances with age, the biological clock in our brain regulates the rhythm of our body. This clock helps us regulate our wake-up, meal, and sleep times.
But that is not all. It influences hundreds of molecular clocks in our cells and organs, regulating our metabolism and controlling how our genes make proteins, among other subtle aspects of how our bodies operate.
Currently, scientists are attempting to tailor treatments to our circadian rhythms. Laboratories are developing drugs that specifically target the watch. In the future, could we manipulate our biological clocks to improve our health? Read the complete text.
