deep learningNeural Nets to Simulate Molecular Motion

Artificial neural nets can be trained to encode quantum mechanical laws to describe the motions of molecules, supercharging simulations potentially across a broad range of fields. New deep learning models predict the interactions between atoms in organic molecules. These models …

futureIronbridge Quantum Communication

Cambridge Quantum Computing uses photonics and quantum entanglement to generate truly random numbers. They also constantly verify that quantum randomness is being maintained. Failure to of quantum randomness tests indicates that there has been interference and tampering. Brian Wang Brian Wang …

chinaChina’s Quantum Satellite Security Has Been Broken

China created a satellite for secure distribution of keys for encrypted data. The hope was that this would enable totally secure unbreakable transmission of the keys for coded data. Quantum key distribution (QKD) is a secure communication method which implements …
