Stem cell research is one of the fastest-moving fields of science today, with new findings coming one after another. At the Weizmann Institute of Science, in just the past several months alone, researchers have discovered important new information about how stem cells grow, differentiate, and can be reprogrammed. Stem cells have the potential to change medicine as we know it – but there are still many steps ahead. Fortunately, Weizmann scientists never seem to get tired.
If you’re like a lot of people, the words “quantum computing” may make your eyes glaze over – but get ready, because quantum computers will be coming to a desk near you. Electronic computers can’t improve much more, and quantum computers have the potential to be exponentially faster and more powerful. They are the future of computing. The problem: they don’t exist – yet. But you can understand their potential, and the difficulties in developing them, as Dr. Roee Ozeri explains this complex topic – in just a minute and a half.
