A new optical chip that can process photons in a dizzying number of infinite ways has been developed by two research teams. Researchers from the University of Bristol in the UK and Nippon Telegraph and Telephone in Japan (NTT) are behind the breakthrough in quantum computing.
The means to solve daunting problems such as the ability to design new life-saving drugs; perform advanced calculations that are a step or two beyond even supercomputers; and analyze weather patterns for more accurate forecasting has just received a major boost.
A group of researchers have pulled [...]
In five years, the world is moving toward an average of 10 devices per household. By 2020, predictions account for 20 billion devices globally. Connectivity is becoming a way of life. The mobile healthcare market, for example, is expected to grow to $60 billion in 2015. Concepts such as “Continuous Healthcare” would use telepresence to change interactions between patients and doctors.
Below are some predictions for disruptions changing healthcare and extending human life by the year 2025 or beyond.Regrowing Body Parts/3D printing
