In a study published June 16 in the journal Nature, researchers at the University of Wisconsin–Madison found that errors are correlated across an entire superconducting quantum computing chip, highlighting a concern that must now be acknowledged and addressed in the quest for fault-tolerant quantum computers. Importantly, their work also points to mitigation strategies.

Just in southeastern Wisconsin, at least two dozen camps focusing on STEM — science, technology, engineering, math — are scheduled for this summer. Some are affiliated with universities; some with museums. Technology companies may get involved; General Electric, for example is sponsoring a girls’ STEM camp at Milwaukee School of Engineering and other sites across the country.
Chicago Prize Postdoctoral Fellowship in Theoretical Quantum Science
Chicago Prize Postdoctoral Fellows will have the opportunity to interact with both computer scientists and physicists at the University of Chicago. Applications focused on collaborative and cross-disciplinary research are especially encouraged.
Deadline: Rolling deadline
