Major international research programme on Life as learning
Mobile phones are the new learning tools of the future
Mobile phones look set to become an important new learning tool for the future. One of the projects under the umbrella of the Academy of Finland international research programme Life as Learning (or LEARN for short) is working on theoretical models and practical applications that will facilitate the use of mobile technology in learning. In charge of this project is Professor Jari Multisilta from the Tampere University of Technology (Finland): he says that the aim is to develop palmtop computers, communicators and videophones for different learning applications.
The project will be creating theoretical models of future learning that will be tested in different situations primarily by university students. Business companies are already closely involved in the project, and this cooperation will certainly be continued. In the business context mobile technology provides a valuable tool for on-the-job training. A good example, Professor Multisilta says, is having the maintenance instructions for a paper machine sent by mobile phone to the machine operator:

Researchers led by Francesca Ferlaino from the University of Innsbruck and the Austrian Academy of Sciences report in Physical Review X on the observation of supersolid behavior in dipolar quantum gases of erbium and dysprosium. In the dysprosium gas these properties are unprecedentedly long-lived. This sets the stage for future investigations into the nature of this exotic phase of matter.
Supersolidity is a paradoxical state where the matter is both crystallized and superfluid. Predicted 50 years ago, such a counter-intuitive phase, featuring...

A localization phenomenon boosts the accuracy of solving quantum many-body problems with quantum computers which are otherwise challenging for conventional computers. This brings such digital quantum simulation within reach on quantum devices available today.
Quantum computers promise to solve certain computational problems exponentially faster than any classical machine. “A particularly promising application is the...
