Quantum Computers And The End Of Security

Quantum Computers And The End Of Security | Tracking the Future | Scoop.it

Quantum computing and quantum communications; these concepts were invented just 30 years ago, after scientific journals refused to issue earlier publications regarding these subjects because it looked more like science-fiction. Nowadays, quantum systems really do exist, with some of them reaching the stage of commercial sales. Quantum computers raise and answer new questions in the security field, primarily in cryptography.

'Quantum internet': Towards realization of solid-state quantum network

'Quantum internet': Towards realization of solid-state quantum network | Tracking the Future | Scoop.it

Researchers at TU Delft in the Netherlands have managed to bring two electrons, three meters from each other, into a quantum- entangled state. This result marks a major step towards realizing a quantum network that can be used to connect future quantum computers and to send information in a completely secure way by means of 'teleportation'.

How you and I could become nodes in the internet of things

How you and I could become nodes in the internet of things | Tracking the Future | Scoop.it

A group of French researchers believe that the sensors and transmitters we wear will route and relay data, not just collect it. We won’t just be connected to the network. We’ll be the network.

NASA Beams Mona Lisa to Moon with Laser

NASA Beams Mona Lisa to Moon with Laser | Tracking the Future | Scoop.it

Call it the ultimate in high art: Using a well-timed laser, NASA scientists have beamed a picture of Leonardo da Vinci's masterpiece, the Mona Lisa, to a powerful spacecraft orbiting the moon, marking a first in laser communication.

The laser signal, fired from an installation in Maryland, beamed the Mona Lisa to the moon to be received 240,000 miles (384,400 km) away by NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, which has been orbiting the moon since 2009. The Mona Lisa transmission, NASA scientists said, is a major advance in laser communication for interplanetary spacecraft.
