If it's impossible to accurately predict the future then there may be limits to how smart artificial intelligence can become.
Google claims quantum supremacy – IBM says not so fast. One researcher explains why he doesn't see quantum computers outpacing classical computers any time soon ... and maybe not ever.
To protect the futures of today's children and youth, schools and universities must go beyond Eurocentric approaches that dissect particulars yet miss the larger point.
Manufacturing quantum computers would be a lot easier with existing technology than the exotic components currently used to build them.
When seconds stretch into minutes.
Heisenberg's famous Uncertainty Principle is put to the test to see if things really are uncertain in the quantum world.
Entanglement is the mysterious relationship between two connected atoms. This relationship is the basis of quantum physics, but what is it exactly?
Plenty of movies have tried to play with time travel to help develop their plot. But Avengers: Endgame adds a little quantum mechanics into the mix as well.
Quantum machine learning is an exciting and rapidly growing field.
Quantum physics and its mysteries… And what if this supposedly incomprehensible science weren’t so difficult for non-scientists to understand?
Things get weird at the quantum level and now we know they can happen really fast when a particle pushes through an almost insurmountable barrier.
The study of innovation in large companies and start-ups would benefit from being inspired by physics, which mobilizes different sets of laws for large masses and particles.
From a mysterious energy of empty space to parallel universes, cosmology's view of 'nothing' is anything but boring.
Physicists have designed an electrical component that breaks time-reversal symmetry. Not quite the time machine from Hollywood but it should help with communication technology and quantum computing.
A podcast on intuition: from how it works in the body, to how to harness it, and the story of two scientists who followed a hunch – about quantum biology.
We usually think of quantum entanglement in the realm of atomic systems, but now it's been scaled up to relatively massive objects. This opens the door to new kinds of technology.
Stephen Hawking was a highly creative scientist, pushing past assumptions and playing with "what if" scenarios to take physics to new levels.
Maths and science featured strongly in the 2018 Australian of the Year Awards. Along with physicist Michelle Simmons, maths teacher Eddie Woo and biologist Graham Farquhar were recognised.
A future that continues to have increasingly fast computing depends on quantum physics – but research is showing that there are limits to how fast quantum computers can go.
Researchers' views depend in part on what technology is (or will be) capable of – and in part on what consciousness actually is.
