The purpose of a quantum internet is to enable applications that are fundamentally out of reach for the classical internet.
University of Sussex scientists develop technique to isolate quantum computers from disruptive environmental noise
A team of scientists, led by Professor Winfried Hensinger at the University of Sussex, have made a major breakthrough concerning one of the biggest problems facing quantum computing: how to reduce the disruptive effects of environmental “noise” on the highly sensitive function of a large-scale quantum computer.
A group of international researchers (U.Alvarez-Rodriguez, M.Sanz, L.Lamata & E.Solano) used the IBM quantum computer (available online for free at IBM Quantum Experience) to carry on a research to mimic common stages of life in a controlled virtual environment.
By 2025, up to 10% of global GDP (Gross Domestic Product) is likely to be stored on blockchains. A blockchain is a digital tool that uses cryptography techniques to protect information from unauthorized changes. It lies at the root of the Bitcoin cryptocurrency. Blockchain-related products are used everywhere from finance and manufacturing to healthcare, in a market worth more than US$150 billion.
On October 29th 2018 the Quantum Flagship officially started, the European initiative that foresees 1 billion euros of investments in quantum technologies over the next ten years.
Quantum computing is getting a significant amount of attention these days, especially since IBM put a real 5-qubit machine online in May 2016 IBM Q Experience
Yale Researchers "Teleport" a Quantum Gate Yale University researchers have demonstrated one of the key steps in building the architecture for modular quantum computers: the "teleportation" of a quantum gate between two qubits, on demand. Their work has been published on Nature. The key principle behind this new work is quantum teleportation, a unique feature of quantum mechanics that has previously been used to transmit unknown quantum states between two parties without physically sending the state itself. Using a theoretical protocol developed in the 1990s, Yale researchers experimentally demonstrated a quantum operation, or "gate," without relying on any direct interaction. [...]
China’s Quantum Key Network demonstration. China has the quantum technology to perfectly encrypt useful signals over distances far vaster than anyone has ever accomplished, spanning Europe and Asia, according to a stunning research paper published this year on Physical Review Letters. “We have demonstrated intercontinental quantum communication among multiple locations on Earth with a maximal separation of 7,600 kilometers” say the teams, which are led by Anton Zeilinger at the University of Vienna and by Jian-Wei Pan at the University of Science and Technology of China in Hefei, China. University of Science and Technology of China Bits of [...]
