(Computing.co.uk) The US Department of Energy is backing a plan by scientists to create a network to be built in Chicago that will prove that quantum physics could provide the basis for an unhackable internet. The quantum network development, supported by the US Department of Energy (DOE), will stretch between the DOE’s Argonne National Laboratory and Fermi National Acceleratory Laboratory,

(Quanta.org) Thomas Lin, Editor-in-Chief of Quanta magazine discusses one relatively recent approach to understanding quantum gravity that makes use of a “holographic duality” from string theory called the AdS-CFT correspondence (Anti-de Sitter space). An animated video accompanies this discussion and further explains quantum gravity in concrete terms: why the earth revolves around the sun or a shark falls back into

(InterestingEngineering) Few scientists have made as much impact on the modern world as Niels Bohr. In honor of the 56th anniversary of his passing, this article delves into his pioneering work on Quantum Mechanics and Complementarity. Bohr’s unique contribution to the philosophy of physics was the complete upending of the classical model of physics that had existed since Newton: electrons

(TechnologyReview) Francesco Tacchino and colleagues at the University of Pavia in Italy have built the world’s first perceptron implemented on a quantum computer and then put it through its paces on some simple image processing tasks. NOTE: A perceptron is a single-layer neural network created by Frank Rosenblatt at the Cornell Aeronautical Laboratory.and the New York Times reported that it

(Phys.org) Scientists from the University of Vienna and the Austrian Academy of Sciences have broken new ground. They sought to use more complex quantum systems than two-dimensionally entangled qubits and thus can increase the information capacity with the same number of particles. The developed methods and technologies could in the future enable the teleportation of complex quantum systems. The idea

(ZDNet) CEO of Australian quantum cybersecurity firm QuintessenceLabs (QLabs) Vikram Sharma recently detailed the plan of the global security industry as it prepares for the reality of a quantum computer within the next decade. “Because of the advances in quantum computation, they are going to put at risk many of the mechanisms we use to secure information today. But interestingly

(LawTechnologyToday) Law is going to look different after the next wave of tech innovations. Algorithms could be smarter than the smartest lawyers in the near future according to this author. While no one knows exactly when quantum computing will take hold and how AI will advance, it’s clear to this auathor that a legal profession that relies exclusively on human
