Big things happen when computers get smaller. Or faster. And quantum computing is about chasing perhaps the biggest performance boost in the history of technology. The basic idea is to smash some barriers that limit the speed of existing computers by harnessing the counterintuitive physics of subatomic scales.

The first electrified road capable of charging EVs as they drive across it is now open outside of Stockholm, Sweden. While the road — which links Stockholm Arlanda airport to a nearby logistics site — is only two kilometers long, it is a significant step forward in Sweden’s strategic plan for energy and climate change. The country aims to become independent of fossil fuels by 2030 – a task that will require a 70 percent reduction in emissions from the transportation sector. Once expanded, the electric roadways and highways in Sweden will make it convenient to charge electric vehicles and ease the country’s transition from traditional combustion engine vehicles.

Henry Ford and Thomas Edison collaborated on an electric car. Electric cars were the future – a century in the past.

“The Woz,” who drives a Tesla Model S, is concerned some people are mistaking Tesla’s current Autopilot system as a completely capable self-driving program. In reality, Tesla’s Autopilot feature is classified by the federal government as a “level two” autonomous driving system, which means the car is only partially automated, meaning it will steer itself, accelerate, and decelerate — but the driver must always be prepared to take control of the vehicle.
