To find out whether quantum computers will work properly, scientists must simulate them on a classical computer. Now a record-breaking experiment has simulated the largest quantum computer yet.
Researchers actually modeled this plant-watching robot on sloths.
No one really knows how the most advanced algorithms do what they do. That could be a problem.
We are on the cusp of a robotics revolution in which the boundaries between artificial intelligence and biology are blurring.
By detecting trends that humans are unable to spot, researchers hope to treat the disorder more effectively.
Quantum search algorithms could change the face of computing now that physicists have shown how to execute them on a scalable device.
A dexterous new robotic gripper can manipulate unfamiliar objects, and it shares what it learns with a hive mind in the cloud.
Next up on the list of jobs being automated: forklift driver.
As machines take over more decisions from humans, new questions about fairness, ethics, and morality arise.
Its dexterity could make it invaluable in factories and homes.
