A simple two-dimensional grid can convey a lot of information – whether making pictures with Lite-Brite or storing data in DNA.
DNA has been storing vast amounts of biological information for billions of years. Researchers are working to harness DNA for archiving data. A new method uses light to simplify the process.
The Conversation published a story earlier today that was incorrect. The story, titled “We have less than three months to opt out before the My Health Record system has our details, and no-one told us…
Detecting the errors in data is one thing, but correction them is still possible at the quantum computing level.
One of the challenges for quantum computing is knowing how to detect and correct errors that may occur in the data. And we can do that without even knowing what the data says.
