Researchers create a first frequency comb of time-bin entangled qubits

Posted by in categories: computing, particle physics, quantum physics, security

Quantum mechanics, with its counter-intuitive rules for describing the behavior of tiny particles like photons and atoms, holds great promise for profound advances in the security and speed of how we communicate and compute.

Now an international team of researchers has built a chip that generates multiple frequencies from a robust quantum system that produces time-bin entangled photons. In contrast to other quantum state realizations, entangled photons don’t need bulky equipment to keep them in their quantum state, and they can transmit quantum information across long distances. The new device creates entangled photons that span the traditional telecommunications spectrum, making it appealing for multi-channel quantum communication and more powerful quantum computers.

“The advantages of our chip are that it’s compact and cheap. It’s also unique that it operates on multiple channels,” said Michael Kues, Institut National de la Recherche Scientifique (INRS), University of Quebec, Canada.

“The point of this excursion into tech history is that a technology often produces its best results just when it’s ready to be replaced — it’s the best it’s ever been, but it’s also the best it could ever be.”

AI talent grab sparks excitement and concern

Posted by in categories: computing, robotics/AI

AI talent from academia is not surprising; however, another area where AI talent has existed in the US is in the national labs such as those Computer Scientists and Architects at ORNL (X-10, K-25, Y-12) during the years of 1990s, 2000s, and 2010-today as well as other labs such as Los Alamos, etc… I know this because I was one and worked with many AI specialists and researchers. I will say some of this talent has gone into the private sector; however, many still work on AI. In case companies are interested in trying to locate solid AI specialists.

Google, Facebook and other tech firms are changing how artificial-intelligence research is done.

Google Glass to ‘rehumanise’ doctor-patient relationship

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, business, computing, health

Using Google Glass, Augmedix has developed a platform for doctors to collect, update and recall patient and other medical data in real time, technology website TechCrunch reported on Tuesday.

Google Glass is no longer available for consumers but its enterprise business continues to rise especially in the health care sector.

“When you are with doctors without Glass, they are charting and clicking on computers for a lot of the time and not focusing on their patients,” Ian Shakil, CEO of Augmedix was quoted as saying.

Hi-res nanoparticle maps reveal best shape for batteries

Posted by in categories: biological, computing, nanotechnology, particle physics

Many recent big technological advances in computing, communications, energy, and biology have relied on nanoparticles. It can be hard to determine the best nanomaterials for these applications, however, because observing nanoparticles in action requires high spatial resolution in “messy,” dynamic environments.

In a recent step in this direction, a team of engineers has obtained a first look inside phase-changing nanoparticles, showing how their shape and crystallinity—the arrangement of atoms within the crystal—can have dramatic effects on their performance.

The work, which appears in Nature Materials, has immediate applications in the design of energy storage materials, but could eventually find its way into data storage, electronic switches, and any device in which the phase transformation of a material regulates its performance.

Want a career in artificial intelligence? Here’s a guide

Posted by in categories: computing, employment, information science, robotics/AI

Good article overall highlighting the gaps in AI talent. I do know that some of the best AI SMEs in the US all have worked somewhere in their careers at the US National Labs because many us had to build “real time” systems that leveraged complex algorithms to self-monitor conditions and react independently under certain conditions arise and in some cases we leveraged the super computer to prove theories as well. I suggest locate where some of these folks exist because you will find your talent pool.

Artificial Intelligence is the field where jobs continue to grow, provided you have the desired skill sets

Europe’s billion Euro bet on quantum computing

Posted by in categories: computing, neuroscience, quantum physics, space travel


Quantum computers have been hailed for their revolutionary potential in everything from space exploration to cancer treatment, so it might not come as a surprise that Europe is betting big on the ultra-powerful machines.

A new €1 billion ($1.13 billion) project has been announced by the European Commission aimed at developing quantum technologies over the next 10 years and placing Europe at the forefront of “the second quantum revolution.”
