Better info transfer marks step forward for quantum computing By Lance VaughnMay 07, 2021 Quantum science has the potential to revolutionize modern technology with more efficient computers, communication, and sensing devices. But challenges remain in achieving these technological goals, especially when it comes to effectively transferring information in quantum systems. A regular computer consists of billions of transistors, called bits. Quantum computers, on the other hand, are based on quantum bits, also known as qubits, which can be made from a single electron. Unlike ordinary transistors, which can be either “0” (off) or “1” (on), qubits can be both “0” and “1” at the same time. The ability of individual qubits to occupy these so-called superposition states, where they...

The Eclipse Foundation Unveils its New Vision for Managing and Operating Edge Computing Environments via Open Source Software

BRUSSELS, Belgium, April 29, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Eclipse Foundation, one of the world’s largest open source software foundations, as well as the Edge Native Working Group, today announced the release of a new white paper entitled “EdgeOps: A New Vision For Edge Computing” The paper articulates a new approach for building software solutions for edge computing environments, with an emphasis on open source. EdgeOps is an adaptation of DevOps, with a focus on software, tooling and processes for edge computing environments. It specifically addresses the challenges of edge computing, such as power, security, latency, communication protocols, etc., and takes into account the characteristics of edge computing solutions and associated deployment approaches required in an edge environment. The white paper is available now as a free...

Now that’s edge computing — GCN

Now that’s edge computing Astronauts at the International Space Station will soon be taking delivery of an HPE Spaceborne Computer-2 (SBC-2). Expected to be in service for two to three years, the edge computing device will connect ISS users to Microsoft’s Azure cloud. In 2107, NASA sent the first Spaceborne Computer, an HPE Linux machine, to the ISS to give astronauts high-performance computing capabilities for onboard operations and provide extra power for their experiments.   The ruggedized SBC-2 is built on the HPE Edgeline Converged Edge system and offers twice the compute speed as the original Spaceborne Computer. GPUs allow SBC-2 to more easily ingest and process image-intensive data from satellites, environmental sensors and cameras in real time. The GPU capabilities will also support specific...
