Robotic Brain Training Relieves Paralysis in Duke Study

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, computing, cyborgs, neuroscience, robotics/AI

Excellent! Super human capabilities at work via brain-controlled robotics.

Eight people who spent years paralyzed from spinal cord injuries have regained partial control of their lower limbs as well as some sensation following work with brain-controlled robotics. Five of the participants had been paralyzed for at least five years and two had been paralyzed for more than ten.

It took seven months of training before most of the subjects saw any changes. After a year, four patients’ sensation and muscle control changed significantly enough that doctors upgraded their diagnoses from complete to partial paralysis.

CERN & D-Wave’s Quantum Key To The Abyss & Beyond

Posted by in categories: computing, quantum physics

Interesting recorded show on how each person has been assigned a unique node which can replicate the person digitally in a virtual world. And, how DoD and D-Wave is involved. Not sure how factual this is; but an interesting concept.

Anthony Patch, author researcher & public speacker, is back on The Kev Baker Show. This time out we discuss how CERN & quantum computers literally hold the key to unlocking a multidimensional reality.

New Condensed Matter State Paves the Way for Scalable Quantum Computers

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

Rice physicists are closing in on a method that will create a new condensed matter state in which all electrons in a material act as one by manipulating them with light and a magnetic field. This research advance technologies such as quantum computers.

For particle physicists, studying the interactions between photons and electrons has long been an area of interest. After all, observing such phenomena could eventually lead us to the creation of a viable quantum computer.

Physicist Junichiro Kono and his colleagues at Rice University are making headway on a method to create a new condensed matter state, where electrons in a material “couple” after they are manipulated with light and a magnetic field.

Building devices from colloidal quantum dots

Posted by in categories: materials, quantum physics

Meet the punk rock version of Device making via Q-Dots.

A wide range of materials can now be synthesized into semiconducting quantum dots. Because these materials grow from solutions, there is scope to combine quantum dots into devices by using simple, low-cost manufacturing processes. Kagan et al. review recent progress in tailoring and combining quantum dots to build electronic and optoelectronic devices. Because it is possible to tune the size, shape, and connectivity of each of the quantum dots, there is potential for fabricating electronic materials with properties that are not available in traditional bulk semiconductors.

So your company’s been hacked: How to handle the aftermath

Posted by in categories: cybercrime/malcode, education, encryption

I can honestly say that many of us working with QC hasn’t warned folks for a while on the hacking risks around QC going against even today’s most sophisticated encryption models & methods; and to be developing a strategy in how to best handle this risk. With last weeks launch by China has shown the world that we are definitely not a decade away from this risk.

Education and planning are key, cyber-security expert Tyler Cohen Wood says.
