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.
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!"
@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.
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...
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
