Researchers develop platform to probe, control qubits in silicon for quantum networks

Posted by in categories: internet, quantum physics

The quantum internet would be a lot easier to build if we could use existing telecommunications technologies and infrastructure. Over the past few years, researchers have discovered defects in silicon—a ubiquitous semiconductor material—that could be used to send and store quantum information over widely used telecommunications wavelengths. Could these defects in silicon be the best choice among all the promising candidates to host qubits for quantum communications?

Building quantum computers just got easier with new technique

Posted by in categories: computing, internet, quantum physics

Researchers have devised a new method of building quantum computers, creating and “annihilating” qubits on demand, using a femtosecond laser to dope silicon with hydrogen.

This breakthrough could pave the way for quantum computers that use programmable optical qubits or “spin-photon qubits” to connect quantum nodes across a remote network.

In turn, this creates a quantum internet that is more secure and capable of transmitting more data than current optical-fiber information technologies.

How to opt out of Meta’s AI training

Posted by in categories: internet, robotics/AI

Internet data scraping is one of the biggest fights in AI right now. Tech companies argue that anything on the public internet is fair game, but they are facing a barrage of lawsuits over their data practices and copyright. It will likely take years until clear rules are in place.

In the meantime, they are running out of training data to build even bigger, more powerful models, and to Meta, your posts are a gold mine.

If you’re uncomfortable with having Meta use your personal information and intellectual property to train its AI models in perpetuity, consider opting out. Although Meta does not guarantee it will allow this, it does say it will “review objection requests in accordance with relevant data protection laws.”

The Future of AI and 5G: Scientists Develop the First Universal, Programmable, and Multifunctional Photonic Chip

Posted by in categories: drones, internet, quantum physics, robotics/AI, satellites

Researchers from the Photonics Research Laboratory (PRL)-iTEAM at the Universitat Politècnica de València, in collaboration with iPRONICS, have developed a groundbreaking photonic chip. This chip is the world’s first to be universal, programmable, and multifunctional, making it a significant advancement for the telecommunications industry, data centers, and AI computing infrastructures. It is poised to enhance a variety of applications including 5G communications, quantum computing, data centers, artificial intelligence, satellites, drones, and autonomous vehicles.

The development of this revolutionary chip is the main result of the European project UMWP-Chip, led by researcher José Capmany and funded by an ERC Advanced Grant from the European Research Council. The work has been published in the Nature Communications journal.

Vandenberg SFB Sees Third Launch of Week with SpaceX Rocket’s Liftoff

Posted by in categories: internet, satellites

SpaceX continued expanding the Starlink constellation’s direct-to-cell capabilities by sending another 13 satellites plus seven others into orbit aboard a Falcon 9 rocket launched early Saturday from Vandenberg Space Force Base.

The 20 new Starlink satellites, including a baker’s dozen with direct-to-cell capabilities, lifted off at 5:58 a.m. Saturday as a stubborn marine layer interfered with those hoping to see it.

After completing its tasks, the first-stage booster, making its 21st flight, landed on the Of Course I Still Love You droneship positioned in the Pacific Ocean hundreds of miles south of the base. Saturday’s mission marked the 301st successful Falcon landing.

All-powerful, ever-pervasive AI is running out of internet

Posted by in categories: information science, internet, robotics/AI

TO AVOID DATA COLLAPSE, Algorithmic Input models must have human-generated inputs, but those inputs are “running out” if only those existing on the internet are used.

There is no such thing as unlimited data.
