In its early years, information theory – which grew out of a landmark 1948 paper by MIT alumnus and future professor Claude Shannon – was dominated by research on error-correcting codes: How do you encode information so as to guarantee its faithful transmission, even in the presence of the corrupting influences engineers call "noise"? Recently, one of the most intriguing developments in information theory has been a different kind of coding, called network coding, in which the...

Expert Predicts Quantum Computing Technology Could Be Near
2012-05-07 04:02:49

A prominent theoretical physicist and the co-author of a book on quantum mechanics believes that research in the field of quantum computing is rapidly progressing, and that the technology is inching ever closer to becoming a reality. In a column written for the Guardian on Saturday, Jeff Forshaw, co-author of the 2011 book 'The Quantum Universe: Everything That Can Happen Does Happen' and a professor at the University of Manchester, said, "Quantum simulations have, in the past year, really...

Quintel Partners with Tier 1 US Operator to Increase Pan Handle Network Capacity in Advance of Spring Break Rochester, New York (PRWEB) May 04, 2012 Quintel®, the leading innovator of highly efficient antennas for wireless networks, has just completed the deployment of its SVP solution for a Tier 1 US operator. This project was triggered by the need for increasing 3G capacity without carving additional spectrum from 2G. In response to increasing penetration of smart phones and...

Theoretical Physicist Michio Kaku: The End Is Near For Moore’s Law
2012-05-01 09:03:39

Brett Smith for Redorbit.com The days of Moore´s Law, which says computer processing capability doubles every 18 months, could be coming to a close according to theoretical physicist Michio Kaku. In a video produced for BigThink.com, Kaku said the smaller and smaller silicon chips that companies are producing might soon reach their processing limits. Once a chip´s layer of silicon reaches the size of about 5 atoms across it will begin to suffer from two particular...

NIST Physicists Benchmark Quantum Simulator With Hundreds Of Qubits
2012-04-25 11:32:05

Physicists at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have built a quantum simulator that can engineer interactions among hundreds of quantum bits (qubits)–10 times more than previous devices. As described in the April 26 issue of Nature*, the simulator has passed a series of important benchmarking tests and scientists are poised to study problems in material science that are impossible to model on conventional computers. Many important problems in...

Researchers have discovered a new way in which computers based on quantum physics could beat the performance of classical computers. The work, by researchers based in Singapore and the UK, implies that a Matrix-like simulation of reality would require less memory on a quantum computer than on a classical computer. It also hints at a way to investigate whether a deeper theory lies beneath quantum theory. The finding emerges from fundamental consideration of how much information is needed to...

One of the strange features of quantum information is that, unlike almost every other type of information, it cannot be perfectly copied. For example, it is impossible to take a single photon and make a number of photons that are in the exact same quantum state. This may seem minor, but it's not. If perfect copying was possible, it would, among other things, be possible to send signals faster than the speed of light. This is forbidden by Einstein's theory of relativity. For years,...
