I was completely inspired and impressed by this. When we put this online less than two years ago, we had no idea whether people would use it or what they would use it for. I just want to share a quick summary of five very cool research papers that I think exemplify our extraordinarily talented community. Advancing the theory Entropic uncertainty and measurement reversibilityBerta, Wehner, and Wilde This paper unifies two features of quantum mechanics into a single relationship:
May 31, 8: Tucker has penned an article to accompany a little-reported research paper that was published last October. Brennen, a researcher at the Centre for Quantum Technologies at the National University of Singapore, Tucker has concluded that quantum computing was not nearly the fatalistic threat that many tout it to be to cryptocurrencies.
Quantum computers have often been cited as an irrefutable kill switch for Bitcoin.
The idea is that quantum machines, capable of processing data hundreds of times faster than the most advanced computers today, could either brute force signatures in little time or solve proof-of-work algorithms fast enough to pose a threat to the security of the Bitcoin network.
This would render Bitcoin and other similar cryptocurrencies entirely useless. Although Brennan et al. In fact, given that quantum computing is still being developed, the authors believe that there is plenty of time to protect networks against it.
When addressing the issue of quantum machines dominating proof-of-work, he references the original material: However, such a development is unlikely in the next decade, at which point classical hardware may be much faster, and quantum technology might be so widespread that no single quantum enabled agent could dominate the PoW problem.
The problems in the fiat status quo are enormous enough to fill whole libraries starting with certain obvious problems: The problems revealed themselves in The system has not been repaired in a way that can prevent a repeat of that experience. May 31st, by Rick D.Now, with the small quantum computers at hand, and new developments coming swiftly, scientists and corporations are preparing for a new .
The Air Force wants white papers that describe new ways quantum computing could help achieve its mission, a ccording to an amended Broad Agency Announcement posted Friday.
Eventually, the government could provide a test-bed where a contractor might install, develop and test a quantum computing system, according to the announcement.
