**We could detect alien civilizations through their interstellar quantum communication**

Where transmissions through interstellar space are concerned, the main issues are distance, free electrons (solar wind), interplanetary dust, and the interstellar medium—low-density clouds of dust and gas. ” These include “gate-keeping,” quantum supremacy, information security, and information efficiency. “Turned the other…

**IBM Publishes Qiskit Modules That Utilize Quantum Computers To**

The IBM team said that quantum computation provides another potential path to boost the ability of machine learning models, and similar research is increasing at an incredible speed. IBM announces Qiskit Machine Learning, an array of new application modules that is a…

**Quantum technologies can transform innovation and mitigate climate change – here’s how**

Other quantum-based technologies, such as quantum simulation, also have the potential to successfully predict the complex behaviour of systems which are quantum in nature. Since this conversation, quantum theory and the resulting technologies have indeed become transformative for our…

**Quantum physics mimics spooky action into the past – Glendive Gazette**

In contrast, so-called separable quantum states allow for a classical description, because every particle has well-defined properties on its own. “Within a naïve classical word view, quantum mechanics can even mimic an influence of future actions on past events”, says…

**Standards bodies to coordinate contributions to quantum information technology**

A variety of standards bodies are developing guidance on the expected evolution of quantum information technologies and associated terminology, testing and evaluation methodologies, interoperability requirements, and quantum-safe security measures. Presentations will be followed by a panel discussion among representatives of standards bodies…
