Researchers disentangle quantum machine learning

A group of international researchers have discovered an important barrier that prevents quantum machine learning from being trained – too much quantum entanglement. Quantum machine learning studies the advantages of…

Artificial intelligence predicts eye movements

A great deal of information constantly flows into our brains via the eyes. Scientists can measure the resulting brain activity using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The precise measurement of eye…

How robust are industrial control systems?

Computer scientists develop new test approach. How do industrial control systems react to disturbances? To analyze the reaction to a particular type of disturbance, caused by computational errors, Saarbrücken computer…

Speech recognition for the hospitality sector

Fraunhofer IDMT is making an important contribution to the digitalization of the hospitality sector within the newly established Foodservice Digital Hub. September 2021 saw the launch of the innovation network…

First prototype for digital twins of patients

Optimum prevention, diagnosis and treatment in just one click. As part of the “MED²ICIN” lighthouse project, seven Fraunhofer Institutes are presenting the first prototype of a digital patient model. This…

A superconducting silicon-photonic chip for quantum communication

Researchers resolve a long-standing challenge in quantum optics: optimal Bell-state measurement of time-bin encoded qubits, to enhance the key rate of secure quantum communication. Integrated quantum photonics (IQP) is a…

High-speed laser writing method could pack 500 terabytes of data into CD-sized glass disc

Advances make high-density, 5D optical storage practical for long-term data archiving. Researchers have developed a fast and energy-efficient laser-writing method for producing high-density nanostructures in silica glass. These tiny structures…

Wireless communication devices without batteries?

Research and sustainability, united through light. A research team of IMDEA Networks Institute has introduced Internet of Things (IoT) devices that communicate without any batteries and harvest energy and receive…

Toshiba shrinks quantum key distribution technology to a semiconductor chip

Toshiba develops world’s first QKD system based on quantum transmitter, receiver and random number generator chips; Quantum chips manufactured using standard semiconductor processes; Significant advance towards mass deployment of quantum…

Controlling light with a material three atoms thick

Most of us control light all the time without even thinking about it, usually in mundane ways: we don a pair of sunglasses and put on sunscreen, and close—or open—our…
