Quantum computing will ultimately speed up the computational power that drives many industries and could affect everything from drug discovery to how data is secured.Oliver Berg | Picture Alliance | Getty ImagesQuantum computing was already gathering pace in Japan and elsewhere in Asia when the University of Tokyo and IBM launched their new quantum computer last year. The computer was the second such system built outside the United States by IBM — the latest in a string of key moves in quantum research. The university and IBM have led the Quantum Innovation Initiative Consortium alongside heavyweights of Japanese industry like Toyota and Sony — all with a view to nailing the quantum question. Quantum computing refers to the use of quantum mechanics to run calculations. Quantum computing can run multiple processes at once by using quantum bits, unlike binary bits which power traditional computing.

    Former President Trump condemned his successor's handling of the crisis in Afghanistan on Friday, as the Taliban continued their lightning advance and U.S. personnel prepared to destroy documents and evacuate the embassy in Kabul.   'Tragic mess in Afghanistan, a completely open and broken Border, Crime at record levels, oil prices through the roof, inflation rising, and taken advantage of by the entire world—DO YOU MISS ME YET?' he said in a short emailed statement. His administration negotiated the terms of a U.S. withdrawal in talks with the Taliban last year. Now the speed of a Taliban advance has rattled officials three weeks ahead of President Biden's August 31 deadline to bring all troops home. Biden has repeatedly said he has no regrets about pushing ahead on the timetable.  But on Friday insurgents captured another four provincial capitals in southern Afghanistan as they encircle the capital Kabul.  The result is a growing humanitarian emergency and frantic efforts to evacuate western embassies. 'It's normal procedure to destroy anything sensitive before getting out, but it suggests that things are much further along than...
    BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Baltimore City officials held an event at Gilmor Homes on Thursday to sign up residents in Housing Authority of Baltimore City units for free broadband internet and to distribute computers and devices for access. The internet service is part of a federal program, Emergency Broadband Benefit, created to help low-income Americans stay connected during the COVID-19 pandemic. HABC residents can choose their provider. The group PCs for People also distributed hundreds of free refurbished computers, many of them being old machines from local government agencies that were then refurbished. “Lack of access to technology for remote work, virtual learning, and telehealth continues to undermine the potential of our communities,” Mayor Brandon Scott said in a statement. “The pandemic may have exacerbated the digital divide. It is imperative that we remain laser-focused on ensuring that all City residents are connected to the internet and have access to a device. The HABC Resident Connect event is an example of the importance of public-private partnerships in Baltimore. It will take all of us to work to close the digital divide and deliver...
    With a young man in shorts strumming his guitar and desks littered with water bottles and coffee cups, it could be a scene from any trendy tech start-up firm. But this picture is believed to be the first from inside the lair of a so-called ransomware gang. The fast-growing crime involves hackers seizing control of an IT system or data and demanding money to release it. In the photograph – accompanied by a caption in Chinese reading ‘Wow! Little brother playing guitar’ – a second man peers at a screen, possibly orchestrating a fresh crime. This picture is believed to be the first from inside the lair of a so-called ransomware gang Unearthed by cyber security firm Internet 2.0, the photo is thought to show members of APT41, a Chinese group blamed for more than 100 hacks, including ransomware attacks, up to last year. The FBI issued a wanted poster last September featuring the faces of five APT41 members wanted for questioning over a string of raids in the US, UK, Australia and Taiwan.  The group is also suspected of...

    Barely a month remains until the first anniversary of the declaration of the state of alarm on March 14, with which Spain and its citizens were aware that they had to face a global pandemic, many of them without knowing exactly its meaning. and what it would entail. Thus, the expansion of Covid-19 has brought hand an unprecedented global economic crisis, causing the closure of thousands of businesses and a significant increase in unemployment rates. How could it be otherwise, the pandemic has also caused changes in the price of products that are commonly consumed. Although logic could invite one to think that prices have decreased – as has happened with average wages – this has not been the case. According to data from the Consumer Price Index (CPI), published by the National Institute of Statistics (INE), the interannual rate has risen one point, reaching 0.5%, which means its first positive rate after nine months in negative values. This data translates into an increase in the average price of the shopping basket compared to January 2020, despite the...
    Intel is updating its Next Unit of Computing (NUC) lineup of miniature computers with its 11th Gen processors, and it’s again including a gaming-focused model. The NUC 11 Enthusiast is a follow-up to the NUC 8 Hades Canyon from 2018, which managed to pack triple-A gaming performance (not to mention I/O that rivaled a full-size desktop) into a tiny enclosure. Included in the refresh are updates to the company’s more traditional small-cube NUC Performance Mini computers, which previously had 10th Gen processors. The upgrade brings Wi-Fi 6 and Intel Xe graphics to the i5 and i7 models. Intel has also added a NUC Pro line, some of which have vPro-enabled CPUs and all of which can drive 8K displays. There’s also a NUC 11 compute unit, which is just a board meant to be integrated into future computers. This isn’t the first time Intel has had that idea, but we’ll get more into that in just a moment. The NUC 11 Pro computers come in many sizes.Image: Intel NUCs, however, are notable because...
    MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Want to look forward to a career that can pay up to $90,000 a year with no student loans to pay off? The nation’s workforce is short of people who can make and fix things.

The local car dealership has created a training program to turn their own workers into good technicians that can staff a dealership service department. “This program, after they are done after a year, they should be making over $90,000 a year,” said Warren Henry Automotive Technician Training instructor Ronald Miranda. “It is proof that you do not need a college degree to make six figures.” More from CBSMiami.com ‘Trump Supporters Hurling Homophobic Slurs’ Met With Message Of Love In Wilton Manors Broward Makes History Electing 3 Black Men As Sheriff, State Attorney & Public Defender Multiple Weapons, Counterfeit Credit Cards Seized During Arrest Of Wanted Fugitive In Miramar A traditional automobile tech school could cost as much $20,000 to $50,000.

    The Kano PC, built by London-based startup Kano in partnership with Microsoft.Kano Microsoft is betting that a British computing start-up can take on Google in the educational technology industry, which has thrived during the coronavirus pandemic. London-headquartered Kano, which is focused on teaching kids how to code, raised more than $1 million in an investment from Microsoft, with the tech giant taking a minority stake. The company has raised a total of about $45.5 million to date from investors including Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff. The deal, announced Tuesday, expands on an existing partnership with Microsoft on Kano's bright orange Windows-powered PC. It also sees Kano join the ranks of large IT players like Lenovo and Dell in obtaining original equipment manufacturer licensing from Microsoft. That means Kano is now able to ship its PCs with Windows 10 Pro — a premium version of Microsoft's operating system — to schools and has also formed a co-selling agreement with Microsoft. Kano has received a tender from the Japanese government to sell 3 million of its devices in the country and is in talks...
