AI can now write its own computer code. That’s good news for humans

As soon as Tom Smith got his hands on Codex — a new artificial intelligence technology that writes its own computer programs — he gave it a job interview.

He asked if it could tackle the “coding challenges” that programmers often face when interviewing for big-money jobs at Silicon Valley companies like Google and Facebook. Could it write a program that replaces all the spaces in a sentence with dashes? Even better, could it write one that identifies invalid ZIP codes?

It did both instantly, before completing several other tasks. “These are problems that would be tough for a lot

Scientists discover ‘missing piece’ in quantum computing breakthrough | Science & Tech News

Scientists from the University of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia, have announced the discovery of a major breakthrough in quantum computing.

To date, quantum scientists and computer engineers have only been able to use proof-of-concept models of quantum processors that work with just a few spin qubits, the quantum equivalent of a bit.

Now, new research published in the journal Science Advances has identified a technique which the researchers claim will enable them to control millions of these qubits.

The team considers their design the “missing jigsaw piece” in quantum computer architecture.
