Intel researchers advance quantum computing with spin qubits
QuTech, a research group associated with Intel, reports it was able to develop a spin-based quantum computer with two quantum bits on a single microchip. Meanwhile, physicists at Princeton University say they paired photons to electron spins, an advance that may help in creating larger quantum computers.

Researchers reduce power consumption by 95% in processor
MIT researchers have crafted a neural network processor that has an up to 95% overall power decrease. This advance will enable calculations for artificial intelligence and machine learning on a single system-on-a-chip device, rather than using cloud-based servers to perform the calculations.
