Running an ad on Pornhub so don't be surprised if there's more porn that get uploaded.
To those coming from the ad, welcome!
While still "under construction," the /sci/ board over on fatchan has been opened. We take a different approach to science than both the 20th century mainstream and the 21st century dissidents, come by and check it out sometime: https://fatchan.org/sci/index.html
Thoughts on alternate methods of computation? Have you heard anything big about them recently? Any ideas about feasibility or what might be the next tech to make it big?
It's been a while since I kept up with any news related to the field, but I saw an article recently that said Google is looking to build quantum computers for business and standard commercial operation by 2029. It reminded me that new computation methods are slowly developing and I don't think people talk about them enough. They all focus on quantum computing which is cool and all, but it's all anyone talks about when talking about non-traditional computing.
Back in 2014-2015 I remember being excited about all the new developments with memristors and how they I think it was HP were able to start calculations with a few bits already. I haven't heard anything new since then. Optical still seems to have the same size issues as before from a quick search. Spintronics are neat and have been useful in hard drives for years already, but I really want to see where the use of skyrmion manipulation goes. The idea of read data from, and performing computation using psuedo-particles based on vortices in magnetic fields is just too cool.
