It’s Official: Google Claims to Have Achieved Quantum Supremacy

It’s Official: Google Claims to Have Achieved Quantum Supremacy | GLOBAL TECHNOLOGY XYZ | Scoop.it
And that brings us to today, when Google officially published the paper in the prestigious journal Nature. In it, Google claims its Sycamore quantum computer has completed a random number generation-related calculation in just 200 seconds — a task that would take the world’s most powerful supercomputer 10,000 years, according to the tech giant.
Al Cannistra's insight:

10,000 years in 200 seconds....    It's official now says Google....

and I still want Quantum on my desktop

Corsair's new Vengeance DDR4 RAM kits crank memory to blistering speeds

Corsair's new Vengeance DDR4 RAM kits crank memory to blistering speeds | GLOBAL TECHNOLOGY XYZ | Scoop.it
No average PC user needs memory like this in his home rig, however—but isn't it nice to dream?
Al Cannistra's insight:

more than twice as fast as today's RAM - OK, this one goes on the wish list (it says, not for the average user....  so, OK - now for sure it's on the wish list with a Vengence)

A 15-ton computer aims to provide clean water, electricity, and the internet to thousands

A 15-ton computer aims to provide clean water, electricity, and the internet to thousands | GLOBAL TECHNOLOGY XYZ | Scoop.it
The creators of Watly, a 15-ton multitasking thermal dynamic computer, believe their machine could help address three developmental challenges in Africa in one go: clean water, electricity and internet connectivity. The project—which is only in its prototype stage—aims to offer its machines as a solution to the infrastructural problems that communities all over Africa face. Marc

a tad heavier than a notebook.....   but if it gets the job done.....

Cindy Flores's curator insight, September 29, 10:11 PM
I came across this article that spoke on the subject: clean water. The creator of the machine Marco Attisani is an Italian entrepreneur, which he is hoping for developmental challenges such as clean water, electricity, and internet connectivity to be able to reach Africa. Marco states that one machine can purify up to 3 million liters of water a year and has a life span of 15 years, as well as, creating a Wi-Fi zone with a radius of up to 500 meters. In 2013, the first prototype was initially set up in the village of Abenta in Ghana to test the human impact. However, they did not use evidence to support the statements of the measurements Marco stated previously, meaning, that the statements may, in fact, be untrue. In the article, Soumonnia, an innovation scholar at the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, stated that unless the technology has been used it is considered a nonsuccessful innovation. This article does not have any supporting evidence but the author did make the article convincing enough for us to be able to belive the machine will work for those who will be dependent on the machine. The authors seemed neutral about the topic; it provided measurements without evidence but it provided several points of view  (investments, Marco results, and a statement of Soumonnia) instead of just one.

NYC's New Public Wifi Is Obscenely Fast

NYC's New Public Wifi Is Obscenely Fast | GLOBAL TECHNOLOGY XYZ | Scoop.it
Today, the first of New York City’s public, gigabit wifi hotspots opened to the public. I tried them, so take it from me: They’re insanely fast. How fast? Fast enough that Starbucks’ free internet is about to get killed.
Al Cannistra's insight:

obscene is the right word....  check the speed......
