Could the Bitcoin blockchain one day run your entire city?

Could the Bitcoin blockchain one day run your entire city? The smart city is not a pipe dream, but it is a big, intimidating problem.At this point, it seems more likely that personal objections to the invasiveness of the programs will do more to block smart city functionality than technological barriers.

Google is testing a Chrome browser that adds post-quantum encryption

Google is testing a Chrome browser that adds post-quantum encryption So, we need a new algorithms for key exchange, or a new way of getting around the requirement for key exchange.Enter, post-quantum cryptography and, in the case of this new experiment from Google, a software solution called CECPQ1.

Electroluminescent diamonds could serve as the heart of quantum networks

Electroluminescent diamonds could serve as the heart of quantum networks But researchers might have solved one of the most challenging problems of quantum communications, by showing that diamonds can be used as ultra-bright single photon emitters.Until now, quantum dots have been the closest we’ve come to real-world quantum cryptographic systems, and bit leakage isn’t the only vulnerability in quantum cryptography.

Google Brain's neural-net AI dreams up its own encryption strategy

Google Brain's neural-net AI dreams up its own encryption strategy The company’s neural net/machine learning project, Google Brain, has been working on problems in medical imaging, robotics, and natural language processing, among others.It’s a machine-learning company,” Matthew Zeiler, a Google Brain alumnus, told Wired.
