Artificial Intelligence That Can Program Computers And Solve A $100 Billion Legacy Code Problem

Artificial Intelligence That Can Program Computers And Solve A $100 Billion Legacy Code Problem

Inspiration for AI for Code IBM Computer scientists have long toyed with the idea of creating computers that could write programs for other computers. Artificial intelligence is an obvious technology for the task. It has been previously used for programming on a small scale but unfortunately the results have been limited. Artificial intelligence is one…

Quantum computers could crack today’s encrypted messages. That’s a problem

Quantum computers could crack today’s encrypted messages. That’s a problem

Google plans to make million-qubit quantum computers by 2029 that are much more powerful than this system it showed in 2019. Stephen Shankland/CNET Quantum computers, if they mature enough, will be able to crack much of today’s encryption. That’ll lay bare private communications, company data and military secrets. Today’s quantum computers are far too primitive…
