Scientists are one step closer to error-correcting quantum computers

Mistakes happen — especially in quantum computers. The fragile quantum bits, or qubits, that make up the machines are notoriously error-prone, but now scientists have shown that they can fix the flubs.

Computers that harness the rules of quantum mechanics show promise for making calculations far out of reach for standard computers (SN: 6/29/17). But without a mechanism for fixing the computers’ mistakes, the answers that a quantum computer spits out could be gobbledygook (SN: 6/22/20).

Combining the power of multiple qubits into one can solve the error woes, researchers report October 4 in Nature

The importance of computer security to store valuable information

In layman’s terms, computer security is all about safeguarding computing systems and their data.

As vital as it is to master computer security, everyone should learn it. About 90% of security measures are in the hands of the user. To keep people’s computers, devices, and data safe, everyone who uses a computer or smartphone should be able to comprehend how to do it. Anyone can help secure a computer.

People rely on computers to do their job and research; thus, their security must be taken seriously. In addition, the information safeguards and its implementation facilitates critical business operations.

Smart contracts are coming to Bitcoin through Dfinity’s Internet Computer

Dfinity Foundation’s Internet Computer blockchain is bringing smart-contract capabilities to the Bitcoin (BTC) network, potentially opening the door to new use cases for the premier cryptocurrency. 

Internet Computer will utilize its so-called chain key cryptography to integrate with Bitcoin, paving the way for smart contracts with native BTC addresses that are hosted directly on Internet Computer, Dfinity Foundation announced Tuesday.

“Internet Computer smart contracts will gain access to bitcoin liquidity, and Bitcoin will gain powerful new smart contract functionality, without the need for insecure and cumbersome trusted bridging services,” explained Dominic Williams, the founder and chief scientist of Dfinity Foundation.

The DFINITY Foundation Announces Internet Computer And Bitcoin Integration – Smart Contracts Come To Bitcoin

ZURICH–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The Internet Computer blockchain launched by the DFINITY Foundation will leverage new cryptography techniques to integrate with the Bitcoin network, resulting in smart contracts that directly operate on bitcoin balances for the first time. Related R&D work performed by DFINITY will be realized after the Internet Computer community passed a Network Nervous System (NNS) proposal on September 17 with 96.55% approval. It was already the 20,586th proposal sent to the NNS since the network launched in May.

Today, the Bitcoin network hosts almost a trillion dollars of value. However, the Bitcoin network does not currently host “Turing-complete”
