Quantum teleportation and space settlements

See on Scoop.itIT News

Dutch scientists have succeeded in transmitting information through quantum teleportation, and thereby they proved that Einstein was wrong on this issue.

 

The essence of quantum teleportation is that information is transferred from A to B, withoutpassing through the intermediate space be it through fibers or radio waves. And because the information does not traverse space, it cannot be intercepted, hence quantum teleportation would allow a totally secure connection. The only thing you need to set up a secure channel, is to create a pair of entangled particles.

Big Data: If and Only If

See on Scoop.itIT News

There’s not a day that goes by where I don’t read about the CIO of some billion dollar company claiming that Big Data has saved his company untold sums of money.  A one percent efficiency increase identified by Big Data resulted in some few million in savings.  Segmentation of transactional sales mapped to a unified customer database revealed a 10% increase in alternate channel sales of related products.   Well, at least we know they’re not liars; a recent Bain and Companystudy found that adopters of Big Data analytics have gained a significant lead over the rest of the corporate world.  Companies with the most advanced analytics capabilities outperform competitors by wide margins.

Could This 20-Year-Old Kid Make Bitcoin Obsolete?

See on Scoop.itCooperative capitalism

Toronto programmer Vitalik Buterin was just 17 when he first became active in the world of Bitcoin. Now, at 20, he’s one of the creators of a new currency called Ethereum, which its founders hope will be the next generation of cryptocurrency.

 

Just as Bitcoin made it possible to send and receive money outside of the traditional banking system, Ethereum could make it possible to set up binding contracts outside of the legal system. In addition to a virtual currency called Ether, Ethereum includes a full-fledged programming language that makes it possible to encode binding agreements embedded in the same transaction record that tracks the flow of Ether.

BroadbandBreakfast.com: Is Internet Interconnection the New Network Neutrality? Panel Suggests a New Regulatory Creep

See on Scoop.itIT News

The Federal Communications Commission is likely to experience increasing pressure to intervene in and resolve disputes involving internet interconnection, experts said on Tuesday at a panel hosted by the Progressive Policy Institute.

Central to the discussion was the question of whether the FCC should go as far as to mandate interconnection, should the agency intervene.

Responses from the panelists were mixed, albeit leaning toward the standpoint that outright mandatory interconnection may be unnecessary, and even counter-productive – although there was dissent from that position.
