Elena Kuznetsova, an RQC scientist, stands before a poster paper outlining a new technique for transferring quantum information encoded on single photons to atoms, where they can be processed in a quantum computer.
With the Ukraine situation looking troublesome....sides may have to be taken.....seems the RQC people mentioned have U.S. ties....can the Quantum Computer predict these uncertainties/probabilities? Or do the Chinese already have everybody out-smarted already. The RQC endeavor may go the way of the Crimean McDonalds...
@JannineLove, i also think that most of the work is wrapped under confidentiality agreements. There was a recent news about a Chinese group showing progress on quantum computation but it was a surprise to most of the researcher as noone thought that Chinese group could have been that far in research.
I tripped on the phrase, too, Janine. Whenever I see "uncrackable" in relation to security, I envision a savvy hacker out there who see that as a new challenge. I can almost hear her/him saying: "Let's just see about that!"
I'm thinking about the "uncrackable encryption techniques" mentioned. How much international "sharing" goes on in this field? Seems like there must be a secret arm of the government that monitors/deals with this.
