Charting a course toward quantum simulations of nuclear physics

Posted by in categories: computing, cosmology, particle physics, quantum physics, transportation

In nuclear physics, like much of science, detailed theories alone aren’t always enough to unlock solid predictions. There are often too many pieces, interacting in complex ways, for researchers to follow the logic of a theory through to its end. It’s one reason there are still so many mysteries in nature, including how the universe’s basic building blocks coalesce and form stars and galaxies. The same is true in high-energy experiments, in which particles like protons smash together at incredible speeds to create extreme conditions similar to those just after the Big Bang.

Fortunately, scientists can often wield simulations to cut through the intricacies. A represents the important aspects of one system—such as a plane, a town’s traffic flow or an atom—as part of another, more accessible system (like a or a scale model). Researchers have used their creativity to make simulations cheaper, quicker or easier to work with than the formidable subjects they investigate—like proton collisions or black holes.

Simulations go beyond a matter of convenience; they are essential for tackling cases that are both too difficult to directly observe in experiments and too complex for scientists to tease out every logical conclusion from basic principles. Diverse research breakthroughs—from modeling the complex interactions of the molecules behind life to predicting the experimental signatures that ultimately allowed the identification of the Higgs boson—have resulted from the ingenious use of simulations.

Billions Of Google Chrome Users Now Have Another Surprising Option

Posted by in categories: bitcoin, internet, security

Google Chrome has dominated the internet browser market for the last decade with a staggering near-60% market share and users stretching into the billions.

Rivals to Google Chrome, including Apple’s Safari, Microsoft’s Edge (formerly known as Internet Explorer), and Mozilla’s Firefox have largely failed to convince users to switch—but browser choices are becoming more complex.

Users’ desire for greater security, better privacy, and an ill-defined need to “take back control” from the likes of Google and Microsoft has opened the door for alternatives—including blockchain-based privacy browser Brave, whose chief executive thinks Google “is going to be taken apart over coming years.”

The future is nano, and it will revolutionise medical science Essays

Posted by in categories: bioengineering, biotech/medical, computing, nanotechnology, science

If you’ve been interested in nanotech, but have been too afraid to ask, here is an introductory and interesting article that I’d like to recommend.

My interest in nanotech is based on my hope that nanotech can lead to methods of constructing substrates that are suitable for mind uploading. It may lead to a technique to create duplicate minds.

“These ‘biological engineering’ technologies have made real one of the dreams of the nanotechnology pioneers: the deployment of molecular assemblers able to construct any shape with atomic precision, following a rational design.”

Vitamin C Infusion for the Treatment of Severe 2019-nCoV Infected Pneumonia

Posted by in category: biotech/medical

Ongoing clinical trial to test the effectiveness of vitamin C infusion to help fight against Covid-19:


2019 new coronavirus (2019-nCoV) infected pneumonia, namely severe acute respiratory infection (SARI) has caused global concern and emergency. There is a lack of effective targeted antiviral drugs, and symptomatic supportive treatment is still the current main treatment for SARI.

Vitamin C is significant to human body and plays a role in reducing inflammatory response and preventing common cold. In addtion, a few studies have shown that vitamin C deficiency is related to the increased risk and severity of influenza infections.

Hyperautomation: A Moonshot To Intelligent Processes

Posted by in categories: business, robotics/AI

We could essentially use deep learning to get to the theory of everything if we digitize all processes.


By Rajat Jain, SAP

No single technology can ever replace humans and their unique value. Yet, the addition of hyperautomation is opening a world of new possibilities for the strategic nature of the employee experience – turning highly manual, labor-intensive tasks into nearly no-touch, rules-based processes.

WO2010143206A1 — Infinite engine

Posted by in category: futurism

An infinitegine which electricity from magnetism of magnets directly is provided. The magnets are magnets. The infinitegine consists of magnets (M) which certain of magnetic field. The mobile rotating parts are made of ferromagnetic magnets and will do similar functions like spinning tops vertically aligned to the earth’s gravity. A motor is used to this spinning motion, and it has a function of putting the rotating part in the in rotary motion. The magnetic field of the magnets (M) can be used as anergy source.

Fine-tuning magnetic spin for faster, smaller memory devices

Posted by in categories: computing, quantum physics

Unlike the magnetic materials used to make a typical memory device, antiferromagnets won’t stick to your fridge. That’s because the magnetic spins in antiferromagnets are oppositely aligned and cancel each other out.

Scientists have long theorized that antiferromagnets have potential as materials for ultrafast stable memories. But no one could figure out how to manipulate their magnetization to read and write information in a device.

Now, a team of researchers at Berkeley Lab and UC Berkeley working in the Center for Novel Pathways to Quantum Coherence in Materials, an Energy Frontier Research Center funded by the U.S. Department of Energy, have developed an antiferromagnetic switch for computer memory and processing applications. Their findings, published in the journal Nature Materials, have implications for further miniaturizing computing devices and personal electronics without loss of performance.
