Update, 23 October, 5:40 a.m.: A study from Google claiming quantum supremacy, accidentally leaked online last month, has now been published in Nature. The Google group reiterates its claim that its 53 qubit computer performed, in 200 seconds, an arcane task that would take 10,000 years for Summit, a supercomputer IBM built for the Department of Energy that is currently the world s fastest. But IBM appears to have already rebutted Google s claim. On 21 October, it announced that, by tweaking the way Summit approaches the task, it can do it far faster: in 2.5 days. IBM says the threshold for quantum supremacy doing something a classical computer can t has thus still not been met. The race continues. Read our 23 September story here:
Andreessen Horowitz;s Late Stage Venture Fund led the round with new investors BlackRock, Inc., T. Rowe Price Associates, Inc. and Tiger Global Management also participating.

"We are one of the fastest growing cloud enterprise software companies on record, which means we have a lot of access to capital as this fundraise shows. The revenue is growing gangbusters, and the brand is also really well known. So an IPO is not something that we 're optimizing for, but it ''s something that ''s definitely going to happen down the line in the not too distant future, " Ghodsi told TechCrunch.

Viruses, like those that cause colds and flu, are some of the fastest evolving forms of life on Earth. That s why there are no permanent cures for these common illnesses. Any time scientists come up with a vaccine, it doesn t affect all strains of the virus and even those that are inhibited by it can evolve resistance to the drug pretty quickly.While many researchers are experimenting with the biology of the viruses themselves to find new weaknesses, a new study by scientists at Stanford and the University of California San Francisco (UCSF) may have found a target on the cells they infect instead.
You might feel like it is better to lose weight quickly and then just maintain it for the rest of your life. And countless advertisements promising miraculous weight loss in just days help to reinforce this belief in you. But what these advertisements are not revealing is the health cost of these weight loss plans.

Your body is not made to handle that kind of pressure. These over the top plans make you go through some tough starvation techniques, which can have some severe side effects. And, what if I tell you that you will not lose any weight from these plans? According to a study published in the journal American Psychologist, researchers have found that two thirds of people who initially drop their weight through these programmes, gain even more with time.
