Quantum computing researchers at the University of Oxford have developed a logic gate with a precision of 99.9%.That's not only a new record, it also hits the theoretical benchmark necessary to build a real quantum computer.Logic gates are one of the crucial components inside every computer, and - for that matter - pretty much any digital system.They change inputs into outputs based on a certain logic.An AND gate, for example, will only switch on its output if both of its two inputs are activated.Researchers have done this before, but this time the fidelity of the link was substantially greater than any previous attempt.
File - In this March 6, 2013, file photo, Dan Phillips, a member of the San Antonio Living History Association, patrols the Alamo during a pre-dawn memorial ceremony to remember the 1836 Battle of the Alamo and those who fell on both sides.Archaeologists digging at the Alamo may be close to locating the site of the historic compound s main gate.Experts discovered stones beneath San Antonio s Alamo Plaza last week that could be associated with the main gate of the 18th century Mision San Antonio de Valero, as the Alamo Mission was originally known.The stones are near the possible site of the Alamo s south wall and gate, according to Nesta Anderson, the dig s lead investigator and senior archaeologist at Pape-Dawson Engineers."They are in the right place, so we're hopeful that that is associated with the gate," she said."This would have been the entrance to the Alamo - all the traffic into the walled enclosure would have come through that gate, from the south."
The sword fragment Reimagine the Alamo .Archaeologists digging near the Alamo have unearthed the broken tip of a Mexican soldier s sword that may have been used in the famous 1836 battle.We re pretty excited, we didn t expect it, explained Nesta Anderson, the dig s lead investigator and senior archaeologist at Pape-Dawson Engineers, during a press conference Thursday.The sword tip was found in the dirt near the possible site of the Alamo s south wall and gate.The heavily-corroded fragment, which is almost six inches long, was identified by Sam Nesmith of the Texas Museum of Military History.It would have been issued to a non-commissioned officer in the Mexican infantry, said Anderson.
Swann — a leading home security company — announced a brand-new lineup of do-it-yourself security solutions today, fit for both a residential home or a business.Known mainly for its plug-n-play style of security monitoring equipment, Swann s latest releases plan to continue this tradition by following the company s tried and true formula.After unveiling a total of four new products — including a Garage Parking Sensor and Driveway Alert kit — perhaps Swann s biggest announcement was the fact each device was made immediately available following the reveal.In addition to the above mentioned Garage Parking Sensor and Driveway Alert kit, Swann also announced the release of a Wireless Doorbell and Gate Alert setup.Though each model differs slightly, all four boast the capability of being set up in a matter of minutes, only requiring a minimal amount of mounting and pairing.Once installed, the units then have the ability to accurately monitor and sense any motion near where an owner has installed either variety.

Schroedinger's snake slithers into Bank's quantum simAustralia's Commonwealth Bank has bought a simulated quantum computer that you can program with Python.Yes, that Python – the scripting language created by Guido van Rossum, beloved of web developers and adapted into kiddie-coding tool Scratch.Python may appear an odd choice for a quantum computer, seeing as they're ever-so-exotic that discussions of the technology recognise that building one will be a significant feat.Programming one will be even harder and creating an IDE that doesn't challenge human cognition will be a major achievement.The Bank thinks it has that licked, because it's cooked up “Python libraries which includes qubit initialisation, and gate operations.”
If I want to send a qubit from a lab in Europe to somewhere in New York, that qubit has to make it all the way by itself—you can't read and replace it along the way.To do that in a flexible way that allows computation, you need to store quantum states as they arrive.The bit is then sent to both gates.This can be done because the bit consists of many charges, so the junction simply sends half the charge to one gate and half to the other.Of course there are limits to that approach but, even if I needed to branch many more times, I could simply increase the amount of charge in each copy of the bit through some kind of amplifier.In a similar vein, consider a logical AND gate.
As Annette Long, a flight attendant with 13 years of experience, previously told Business Insider, people often think there's glamour associated with her job.Long said that many passengers often get the wrong idea of what airline workers do for a living.To set the record straight, Business Insider asked more than 80 airline workers including flight attendants, gate agents, ticket agents, and other airport customer service reps to weigh in on some of the most common misconceptions out there.We've anonymously included some of their answers here:Flight attendants party all the time"Most layovers are short, and you barely have time for food and a good night's sleep."
At its Think conference in Las Vegas, IBM on Tuesday took the wraps off Watson Assistant, a virtual helper it's been developing with its customers for over a year.Don't expect to start saying, "Watson, what's the weather?"or "Watson, play They Might be Giants" to an IBM-branded speaker anytime soon.Instead, Watson Assistant will function as the behind-the-scenes brains for a variety of new digital helpers made by a variety of businesses for your home and in stores, airports, hotels and cars.For example, Watson Assistant is already in use at Munich Airport to power a robot that can tell you directions and gate information.Also, Chameleon Technology in the UK created a Watson Assistant-driven platform called I-VIE that helps people manage their energy usage.
Finding your way through an airport can be an infuriating task.With cancellations, delays, and gate switches, you could find yourself running in circles forever before you board.KLM Royal Dutch Airlines wants to help make that jaunt from security to your gate a little less hectic with a little blue robot.The robot, Care-E, will meet you at the security checkpoint and take you wherever you need to go with your carry-on luggage on its back.To start your trip with the robot, it will prompt you to scan your boarding pass through nonverbal sounds and cues on its screen.KLM will launch the device at New York’s JFK and San Francisco’s International airports before the company decides if it will provide the service elsewhere.
Flow cytometry is a method of studying heterogeneous population of cells and chromosomes and it is a powerful tool as it simultaneously allows multiparametric analysis of physical and chemical characteristics of thousands of partials per second.FMO Control Flow Cytometry or Fluorescence Minus One Control flow cytometry is a type of control used to properly identify and gate cells in the context of flow cytometry data in a given panel, spread due to the multiple fluorochromes.Thousands of microscopic particles can be analysed every second using flow cytometry method with detection apparatus while the cells are held in the fluid.Flow Cytometry System is much faster than other options and the data it produces is also detailed that includes the percentage of red cells compared with green cells and can go even further by providing information of bright-green and dull-green cells.Flow cytometry technique is used to spot things that alternatives don’t and you can look at uniform cells populations has the benefit of always highlighting any non-uniformity.Using flow cytometry you can measure single cells and a large number of cells using high-speed analysis depending on the flow rate.

We've just wakened up to 2019 and have basically already forgotten 2018.The pace will not slow during this newborn year.Some reflections: 2018 was the year when the food sector started to realize it is all about data and in 2019 we will see a lot of implementation, some will be rather puerile but some will actually mean an opening of the closely-held data sets so that tech entrepreneurs can do their thing.2019 will also be the year when the food sector realizes that the customer food data they have is not as valuable as they think, since it is data on old consumption patterns, you know, the patterns we need to abandon (meat, processed food, sugar etc).The valuable data for the food sector will increasingly be captured by people themselves (health, aspirations, etc) and not necessarily handed over to retailers or Big Food.But who will help the customers save and crunch their food data?
Radar, a fledgling platform that combines radio frequency identification (RFID) with computer vision to help retailers automate inventory management and more, announced that it has raised $16 million in a round of funding from Ashton Kutcher’s Sound Ventures, NTT Docomo Ventures, Align Ventures, Beanstalk Ventures, Colle Capital, Founders Fund Pathfinder, and Novel TMT.The company said that a couple of its stealth customers — two undisclosed billion-dollar retailers — also invested in the round.An estimated $1.1 trillion is lost each year to “inventory distortion,” defined as any situation in which a customer intent on buying an item isn’t able to due to misplaced or out-of-stock goods.The tags can be used to check boxes or pallets into a store or storage facility and even to track individual items (rather than the broader SKU) at any point in their journey.And unlike barcodes, RFID relies on low-power radio waves that don’t require line-of-sight to identify items.But RFID isn’t a perfect solution for every scenario — for example, it may not be able to tell you the precise location of an RFID-tagged item, which could be essential in future retail outlets.
A revealing cluster of emails leaked to Business Insider offers a glimpse at how Facebook decides what content is objectionable in high profile cases.In this instance, a group of executives at Facebook went hands on in determining if an Alex Jones Instagram post violated the platform’s terms of service or not.The company removed 23 of 500 comments on the post that it interpreted to be in clear violation of Facebook policy.Later in the conversation, some of the UK-based Instagram and Facebook executives on the email provided more context for their US-based peers.Last year, a controversy over the same painting erupted when British politician Jeremy Corbyn argued in support of the mural’s creator after the art was removed from a wall in East London due what many believed to be antisemitic overtones.According to the emails, Alex Jones’ Instagram account “does not currently violate [the rules]” as “an IG account has to have at least 30% of content violating at any given time as per our regular guidelines.” That fact might prove puzzling once you know that Alex Jones got his main account booted off Facebook itself in 2018 — and the company did another sweep for Jones-linked pages last month.
Reimagining credit card payments on the iPhone is a bold, brilliant move that has nothing to do with the service itself and everything to do with drawing you deeper into Apple's ecosystem.It gives you up to 3 percent cash back and a visual financial tracker that helps you stay on top of your payments.And there are no fees for going over your limit, using the card internationally or even paying off the card late -- things that other cards are happy to charge for.Apple has an uncanny ability to leverage its cult status to create hype around products and services in a way that compels others to follow, even if they got there first.But it's Apple's rival phone brands that should be most concerned -- Samsung, Huawei and Google's Pixel -- not because they may want to create their own credit cards (they probably won't), but because anyone who signs up for an Apple Card is essentially binding themselves to the iPhone for as long as they have the card.iMessages and Notes on the iPhone also sync with the Mac, for example, and AirDrop is a wonderful way to seamlessly transfer files between devices.
Spend any time in the greater Seattle area and you can't help but notice the palpable tension between the Microsoft camp and the Amazon camp.Microsofties used to be the top dog of the area, beloved and hated in equal measure.But the rise of Amazon has changed that, much the same way that the rise of Facebook knocked Google off its king-of-the-hill perch in Silicon Valley.It is backing a plan to raises taxes on the state's high tech sector, making companies with annual revenues that exceed $100 billion a year pay even more.Read: 11 enterprise rock stars that have quietly been responsible for some of the most successful cloud services in the worldThere are only two companies there that fit that bill: Microsoft and Amazon.
Boston Dynamics — producers of everyone’s favorite robots that can run, backflip, and generally unnerve the human population — is back with its latest bot: a “reimagined” version of its Handle robot from 2017.And this time, it’s really, really good at stacking boxes.The original Handle was designed largely as an experiment that applied Boston Dynamics’ robot know-how (typically used for bipedal or quadrupedal bots) to one with wheels.The new version looks far more polished, though, applying the original into an actually useful machine that can automatically load and unload pallets of products in a warehouse, as demonstrated in the video.It’s easy to see the applications of Handle in automating warehouse work (like say, Amazon’s fulfillment centers), with fleets of robots rolling around and grabbing boxes to build into a perfect, giant stack.On a technical side, Boston Dynamics says that Handle can life up to 30-pound boxes (although the video used roughly 12-pound boxes), and can stack pallets up to 4 feet deep and up to 5.5 feet tall.
Sure, you could buy Apple's newest iPad for $500.But you can also get a full-service laptop with a keyboard and everything instead.How much computer can you really get for less than $500?Quite a bit, as long as you manage your expectations.Chrome OS isn't nearly as power-hungry as Windows, so you can get by with a lower-end processor, slower storage and less memory -- many of the components that make a laptop expensive.They're great if you spend most of your time roaming the web, writing, streaming video or playing Android games.
