Radar trends to watch: May 2021

RIP Dan Kaminski, master hacker, teacher, FOO, and a great showman who could make some of the more arcane corners of security fun. The Signal app, probably the most widely used app for truly private communication, has wrapped itself in controversy by incorporating a peer-to-peer…

Tomorrow’s computer, yesterday

Curiously, Ed Fredkin, the MIT professor who cosponsored the Endicott Conference with Landauer, had arrived at this same conclusion independently, despite never having earned even an undergraduate degree. Physics of Computation Conference, Endicott House, MIT, May 6–8, 1981. Modern computers, after all, are deterministic: give them the same…

7 Companies Using AI for Drug Discovery

7 Companies Using AI for Drug Discovery

Instead, the AI platform learns the limited possible approaches used in traditional drug discovery from human chemists, such as retrosynthetic analysis, and improves with each sequential iteration. The company has recently announced its first AI-designed molecule for treating cancer using the body’s own immune…

Quantum Computing and Reinforcement Learning Are Joining Forces to Make Faster AI

Quantum Computing and Reinforcement Learning Are Joining Forces to Make Faster AI

In this way, a hybrid reinforcement learning agent alternates between quantum and classical computing, trying out ideas in wibbly-wobbly “multiverse” land while obtaining feedback in grounded, classic physics “normality.” Although only challenged with a “toy problem” in the study,…
