Breakthrough in quantum cloud computing ensures its security and privacy | TechRepublic

“Businesses are one step closer to quantum cloud computing, thanks to a breakthrough made in its security and privacy by scientists at Oxford University. … The researchers used an approach dubbed ‘blind quantum computing’ to connect two quantum computing entities; this simulates the situation where an employee at home or in an office remotely connects to a quantum server via the cloud. With this method, the quantum server provider does not need to know any details of the computation for it to be carried out, keeping the user’s proprietary work secure.”

I scream, you scream, we all scream for… Dice Cream?! [Partner]

Yeah, you read that right. Dice Cream is the revolutionary new bot that serves ice cream in fun square-shaped servings. The idea is simple: Minimize the costs and labor required at your traditional brick-and-mortar ice cream parlor and replace it with robots. While there’s already a functioning prototype, they need more support from investors like you to help bring it fully to life. Shares start at just $250 a pop with eligibility for bonus shares for any investment over $1,500. Invest today to become part of the future of robotics and, more importantly, ice cream. [Ad]

Deepfake detection improves when using algorithms that are more aware of demographic diversity | The Conversation

“Deepfakes – essentially putting words in someone else’s mouth in a very believable way – are becoming more sophisticated by the day and increasingly hard to spot. … Although companies have created detectors to help spot deepfakes, studies have found that biases in the data used to train these tools can lead to certain demographic groups being unfairly targeted.”

$300,000 robotic micro-factories pump out custom-designed homes | New Atlas

“Construction is the world’s largest industry, employing seven percent of the planet's working-age adults, contributing 13 percent of the world’s GDP and completing floor space equivalent to the city of Paris every seven days. … British company Automated Architecture (AUAR) has a thoroughly ingenious solution. … AUAR partners with home builders and contractors in Europe and North America, licensing its micro-factory and all the digital technology to build low-energy homes at the price of normal homes, at any scale. The idea is to provide the tools to empower local ecosystems of communities, contractors, architects and developers to build better homes.”

New Xbox release date and what to expect from Microsoft's next console | The Shortcut

“The Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S have been thoroughly trounced by Sony’s PS5 when it comes to sales, but that hasn’t deterred Microsoft from announcing it’s working on a next-gen console to compete against the inevitable Sony PS6. Speaking on the Official Xbox podcast, the president of Xbox Sarah Bond said: ‘There’s some exciting stuff coming out in hardware that we’re gonna share this holiday, and we’re also invested in the next-generation roadmap.’ Bond went on to say that the team at Xbox is ‘moving full speed ahead on our next generation hardware, focused on delivering the biggest technological leap ever in a generation.’”
