Acronis, a company specialized in new generation data protection, and ID Quantique, a company specialized in quantum-safe crypto solutions, announced a collaboration to help protect companies from future security threats related to advances in decryption techniques and the arrival of quantum computing.
Scientists at Boulder’s National Institute of Standards and Technology published a paper in the scientific journal Optica this week describing how they had recently been able to “perform highly efficient multifold coincidence measurements, resulting in the successful quantum teleportation over 100 km of fiber.”
According to some publications, such as the Christian Science Monitor, this amounts to “breaking the quantum teleportation record.” In a sense, this claim rings true – the previous record using a similar technique was 25 kilometers. However, the researchers are not talking about teleportation in the sense that most readers will think of it. They are not talking [...]
Researchers from Queen Mary University of London and Karlsruhe Institute of Technology have developed a model that applies ideas from the theory of complex networks, such as the brain or the Internet, to the fundamental quantum geometry of space-time.
The first superpower to harnesses quantum science will achieve military super-powers, Defense One reports: unbreakable communication security, and quantum supercomputers much more powerful than today’s machines. As usual, the race is between the US and China.
