Lee Smolin — Is the Universe Fine-Tuned for Life and Mind?

Posted by in categories: alien life, quantum physics

If the deep laws of the universe had been ever so slightly different human beings wouldn’t, and couldn’t, exist. All explanations of this exquisite fine-tuning, obvious and not-so-obvious, have problems or complexities. Natural or supernatural, that is the question.

The experimental demonstration of a verifiable blind quantum computing protocol

Posted by in categories: cybercrime/malcode, quantum physics

Quantum computers, systems that process and store information leveraging quantum mechanical phenomena, could eventually outperform classical computers on numerous tasks. Among other things, these computers could allow researchers to tackle complex optimization problems, speed up drug discovery and better protect users against cyber-security threats.

Private Quantum Cloud: Oxford University Physicists Make Advance in ‘Blind Quantum Computing’

Posted by in categories: computing, encryption, finance, quantum physics, security

PRESS RELEASE — The full power of next-generation quantum computing could soon be harnessed by millions of individuals and companies, thanks to a breakthrough by scientists at Oxford University Physics guaranteeing security and privacy. This advance promises to unlock the transformative potential of cloud-based quantum computing and is detailed in a new study published in the influential U.S. scientific journal Physical Review Letters.

Quantum computing is developing rapidly, paving the way for new applications which could transform services in many areas like healthcare and financial services. It works in a fundamentally different way to conventional computing and is potentially far more powerful. However, it currently requires controlled conditions to remain stable and there are concerns around data authenticity and the effectiveness of current security and encryption systems.

Several leading providers of cloud-based services, like Google, Amazon, and IBM, already separately offer some elements of quantum computing. Safeguarding the privacy and security of customer data is a vital precursor to scaling up and expending its use, and for the development of new applications as the technology advances. The new study by researchers at Oxford University Physics addresses these challenges.

Fresh Mitochondria as a Parkinson’s Treatment

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, life extension, neuroscience

Scientists have tested a novel method of providing cells with healthy mitochondria to fight Parkinson’s disease [1].

Parkinson’s disease is the second-most prevalent neurodegenerative disorder, and it affects 10 million people worldwide. The disease is age-related, as its prevalence rises rapidly in people older than 65, although some people are diagnosed much earlier. Parkinson’s disease is characterized by both motor and mental problems: tremor, rigidity (stiffness), and slowness of movement along with memory and thinking deficits.

Parkinson’s disease is caused by the loss of dopamine-producing (dopaminergic) neurons in a brain region called the substantia nigra. Therapeutic options are limited, and some of the existing ones cause nasty side effects.

China creates world’s first AI child — shows human emotion

Posted by in category: robotics/AI

Chinese scientists have unveiled what they are calling the world’s first artificial intelligence (AI) child.

Developed by the Beijing Institute for General Artificial Intelligence (BIGAI), Tong Tong or Little Girl’s virtual AI avatar was recently introduced for the first time in Beijing.

BIGAI sees Tong Tong as a giant step toward achieving a general artificial intelligence (AGI) agent when a machine can think and reason like a human being.
