It may not be the teleportation you saw in Star Trek, but researchers have sent information across a city via quantum entanglement.
Two separate teams of scientists have taken quantum teleportation from the lab into the real world.
Researchers working in Calgary, Canada and Hefei, China, used existing fiber optics networks to transmit small units of information across cities viaquantum entanglement — Einstein’s “spooky action at a distance.”
According to quantum mechanics, some objects, like photons or electrons, can be entangled. This means that no matter how far apart they are, what happens to one will affect the other instantaneously. To Einstein, this seemed ridiculous, because it entailed information moving faster than the speed of light, something he deemed impossible. But, numerous experiments have shown that entanglement does indeed exist. The challenge was putting it to use.Their breakthrough, published in two separate papers today in Nature Photonics, promises to offer important advancements for communications and encryption technologies....
Unexpected convergent consequences…this is what happens when eight different exponential technologies all explode onto the scene at once. This post (the second of seven) is a look at artificial intelligence.
School administrators and educators are currently zealous about the idea that every student should learn computer science. “Think about the world we live in now,” says New York Mayor Bill de Blasio, “Hundreds of thousands of good jobs will be accessible to those with coding and other essential skills.” I agree that everyone should learn to program, but I disagree with Mayor de Blasio’s motivations. You shouldn’t learn to program in order to get a good job. Learning to think computationally can give you a new way to understand and describe your world. Learning to program can make you a more expressive person.
