Microsoft and other major tech firms around the world are working hard towards the next breakthrough in computing, something many pinning their hopes on quantum computing. One of Microsoft's top researchers, Michael Freedman, has been with the company for twenty years and has put Microsoft on the path to build the first topological qubit. A topological qubit is a robust type of quantum bit that Microsoft hopes will serve as the basis for a scalable, general purpose quantum computer system. The discovery of this qubit would also be a major breakthrough in quantum physics as well. "We’re seeing the... Read more...
Microsoft’s big slip-up is our gain, as the Redmond software giant today accidentally hit the publish button a little too soon on a major announcement. The company will be hosting the Connect() developer conference later this week, but one of the biggest announcements was pushed through today: Visual Studio for Mac.
