IN OCTOBER 2016, while working in Rwanda, a biologist named Jordi Galbany heard about a new online game on one of his favorite podcasts, a Catalan-language radio show called "Versió Rac 1." Playing was simple, he learned: All you did was frantically press 1’s and 0’s as randomly as possible. Galbany was in. Between days of

Before that, the atom served as an increasingly useful hypothetical construct. At the same time, Einstein defined a new entity: a particle of light, the “light quantum,” now called the photon. Until then, everyone considered light to be a kind of wave. It didn’t bother Einstein that no one could observe this new thing. “It

Researchers from The Flatiron Institute in New York recently developed a method they believe will change how we measure quantum states. The team’s approach involved the creation of a software tool that uses neural networks to predict the various positions a quantum bit (qubit) can be in. As Giuseppe Carleo, a researcher for The Flatiron Institute and

  PAUL DIRAC wanted to be seduced, and he wasn’t afraid to admit it. In a 1963 essay recalling his role in discovering the strange-but-true laws of quantum theory, he wrote “it is more important to have beauty in one’s equations than to have them fit experiment”— Read on
