Researchers on a path to build powerful and practical quantum computer

Angelena Iglesia

WASHINGTON — For the first time, researchers have designed a fully connected 32-qubit trapped-ion quantum computer register operating at cryogenic temperatures. The new system represents an important step toward developing practical quantum computers.

Junki Kim from Duke University will present the new hardware design at the inaugural OSA Quantum 2.0 conference to be co-located as an all-virtual event with OSA Frontiers in Optics and Laser Science APS/DLS (FiO + LS) conference 14 – 17 September.

Instead of using traditional computer bits that can only be a zero or a one, quantum computers use qubits that can be in a superposition of computational states. This allows quantum computers to solve problems that are too complex for traditional computers.

Trapped-ion quantum computers are among the most promising type of quantum technology for quantum computing, but it has been challenging to create these computers with enough qubits for practical use.

Health care technology and the pandemic (updated)

Angelena Iglesia

During the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, Dr. Arnold Pallay of Consensus Health received call after call from patients around the country who had seen him before, seeking guidance from a doctor they trusted. On those same days, he would handle dozens of COVID-positive individuals.

Without the mass utilization of telemedicine that happened so quickly over the course of the pandemic, that wouldn’t have been possible, he said.

Pallay spoke alongside three other panelists at NJBIZ’s virtual Health Care Technology panel discussion Monday afternoon.

The panel, moderated by Health Care Institute of New Jersey Chief Executive Officer Dean Paranicas, also included Grassi Healthcare Advisors Partner Joseph Tomaino, New Jersey Innovation Institute Senior Vice President and General Manager Jennifer D’Angelo, and RWJBarnabas Health Chief Innovation Officer and Vice President Jordan Ruch addressing the advancement in health care technology that was accelerated by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Apple iMac 27-inch (2020)

Two-minute review

Recommending a product while it’s going through a transition is always hard and that’s exactly what’s planned for the entire Mac line-up. Apple is moving away from Intel processors to Apple Silicon over the next couple of years. That does not mean that Apple will stop supporting Intel based Macs but they are to become the company’s history and not its future. Keeping that in mind, let’s take a look at the latest 27-inch iMac that is powered by an Intel processor. 

You won’t really notice much of a difference if you keep the 2020 version of the iMac 27-inch next to the one released before it, or the one before it or the one released in 2012. Apple hasn’t changed the design of their all-in-one computer for some time now and it a safe bet to assume that the

Ex-Horry County IT employee heads to prison in $345K computer theft scheme

Angelena Iglesia

A former Horry County technology employee will spend two years in federal prison after stealing computer equipment.

Terry Shawn Petrill, 48, of Myrtle Beach, pleaded guilty to theft of federal funds and was sentenced to two years in prison. He will also have to pay back more than $340,000 in restitution.

Federal officials say that between June 2015 and August 2018, Petrill ordered 41 computer network switches for Horry County. At that time, he was employed with the county.

A switch works similar to a home router and allows multiple computers to connect to the Internet.

The timetable of his crime coincided with various equipment being stolen from the Horry County IT Department, according to a police report, which states an IT worker learned of the missing items during an inventory.

Officials were mum after announcing the investigation and called in the FBI to assist.

Petrill told others he
