Interesting Links from Around the Web
https://www.math.columbia.edu/~woit/wordpress/?p=13367: An interesting write-up of some of the challenges posed by the path-integral formulation to quantum mechanics. The piece links to this paper by Witten on topological interpretations of path integrals https://arxiv.org/abs/1009.6032.
https://scottaaronson.blog/?p=7042: Scott Aaronson’s take on GPT.
https://www.science.org/content/blog-post/future-toxicology: A write up about a recent review of toxicology
https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-023-00509-z: An interesting write-up of ongoing work in neuroimmunology
https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-023-00536-w: Google achieves a major milestone on the pathway to a working quantum computer by using a quantum error correction code to (slightly) slower error rates on quantum calculations. However, qubit lifetimes are still too low to scale error correction to practical scales.
