曾蓓教授在和學生演示量子計算機使用方法。

量子計算被視為「決定未來的技術」,但對不少人來說仍屬艱深難明的概念,即使想要學習亦無從入手。香港科技大學(科大)賽馬會高等研究院新設立的量子科技研究中心,近日引入本港首台用於教學用途的商用量子計算機,讓有關量子算法的教學不再停留於理論層面。該量子計算機採用核磁共振原理,運力為兩比特,可實體向同學展示量子計算背後的操作原理和方法,除了科大師生,也開放給本港其他院校、中小學以及公眾觀摩使用。

作為此計算機的主要設計者之一,科大物理學系教授兼量子科技研究中心主任曾蓓教授表示:「與谷歌、微軟等研發的超導量子計算機所要求的極低溫環境不同,...

香港科技大學(科大)及北京天壇醫院的研究團隊近日發現一個新的突變基因,可導致一種名為「腦海綿狀血管瘤」(Cerebral Cavernous Malformation, CCM)的腦血管病變。目前全球約有一千至三千萬的人士患有此症。

雖然科學家已知CCM1、CCM2及CCM3是引致CCM的三個突變基因,但三個基因主要影響有家族遺傳性的CCM病患,而他們只佔所有CCM個案的百分之二十。餘下的百分之八十非家族遺傳個案,至今成因仍然不明。

如今,由生命科學部兼化學及生物工程學系助理教授王吉光以及北京天壇醫院曹勇教授帶領的研究團隊,分析了113名CCM患者的基因組數據後,發現於四種CCM患者當中,...
