GCN : May 2015
34 GCN MAY 2015 • GCN.COM WishList Tech we hope to see in the public sector IBM quantum computing Quantum computing has the potential to make Moore’s Law moot — if only quantum errors could be better managed. Traditional computing deals in bits — each bit is either 0 or 1, and will generally stay that way until it’s deliberately changed. Quantum computing involves qubits, which can hold values of 0, 1, 0+1 or 0-1 — but qubits can “flip” without warning. IBM scientists, however, have designed a square lattice of four superconducting qubits, where two qubits essentially monitor the other two for errors. Mass-manufacturing such chips is not yet practical, but IBM says the design itself will scale. For cryptography, analytics and data-intensive research, that would mean a whole new ballgame. ReadMe Deloitte has deemed “the API economy” a key tech trend for 2015, and application programming interfaces are critical to making open government data truly useful. An API is not much good, however, if no one knows how to use it. ReadMe aims to take the myster y out of your application or platform. The new service creates easy API documentation, generates application keys and gives interested users the ability to test-drive the API from within the hosted developer hub. It also syncs with GitHub to keep reference docs current with the actual code. Microsoft HoloLens Microsoft’s augmented reality system has been in the works for some time now, and Technical Fellow Alex Kipman announced at the company ’s Build 2015 conference that HoloLens has improved exponentially over the last year or two. The headset device is now ready for developers to start tinkering. HoloLens can layer interactive holograms into the real world, allowing the wearer to “step into” building designs, control robots via gestures or monitor security. (NASA has already been testing the devices.) And virtual training — a big priority for the Defense Department and many other agencies — co uld get very, very interesting. 0515gcn_034.indd 34 4/30/15 11:16 AM
