IBM makes quantum computing available free on IBM Cloud You can run real or simulated experiments on an IBM quantum processor May 3, 2016 [image: Layout of IBM's five superconducting quantum bit device. In 2015, IBM scientists demonstrated critical breakthroughs to detect quantum errors by combining superconducting qubits in latticed arrangements, and whose quantum circuit design is the only physical architecture that can scale to larger dimensions. Now, IBM scientists have achieved a further advance by combining five qubits in the lattice architecture, which demonstrates a key operat...mais »
More evidence that you’re a mindless robot with no free will How we may confabulate reality and rationalize irrational behavior May 4, 2016 [image: (Credit: iStockphoto)] The results of two Yale University psychology experiments suggest that what we believe to be a conscious choice may actually be constructed, or confabulated, unconsciously *after* we act — to rationalize our decisions. A trick of the mind. “Our minds may be rewriting history,” said Adam Bear, a Ph.D. student in the Department of Psychology and lead author of a paper published April 28…* read more* *Topics:* Cognitive ...mais »
Garage Biotech: New drugs using only a computer, the internet and free online dataMay 5, 2016 [image: garage startup ft] *By David Glance* *Director of UWA Centre for Software Practice, University of Western Australia* Pharmaceutical companies typically develop new drugs with thousands of staff and budgets that run into the billions of dollars. One estimate puts the cost of bringing a new drug to market at $2.6 billion with others suggesting that it could be double that cost at $5 billion.

DYING WELL BY WUDAN YAN MAY 4, 2016 Despite technological advances in health care, physicians and family members still have trouble talking candidly about what dying well means, and what their loved ones want when their time comes. And yet no one thought to actually survey the very elderly (those older than 95) on their feelings about death until recently, when researchers at the University of Cambridge surveyed 33individuals over 95 on their attitudes towards dying. The very elderly often accept that the end is near, and have plenty to say about how they want it to go. Some of the...mais »

Reversing Genetic Changes That May Spur Alzheimer’s With Experimental Drug NEUROSCIENCE NEWSMAY 3, 2016 *Aging takes its toll on the brain, and the cells of the hippocampus–a brain region with circuitry crucial to learning and memory–are particularly vulnerable to changes that can lead to Alzheimer’s disease or cognitive decline. With the hope of counteracting the changes that can lead to these two conditions, researchers at Rockefeller University and their colleagues have begun examining the effects of a drug known to affect this circuitry.* In new research described recently in *Mole...mais »
