Banking the unbanked of the world is one of the Holy Grails for blockchain technology and could help millions of people around the globe reach financial inclusion. However, it may come as a surprise to many that this is not just a third-world problem or that it doesn’t only affect individuals. A whole industry in the United States is currently operating completely unbanked and cryptocurrencies could save the day.

7 ways to win the quantum race Superconducting uses an electrical current, flowing through special semiconductor chips cooled to near absolute zero, to produce computational “qubits.” Google, IBM, and Intel are pursuing this approach, which has so far been the front-runner. Ion trap relies on charged atoms that are manipulated by lasers in a vacuum, which helps to reduce noisy interference that can contribute to errors. Industrial giant Honeywell is betting on this technique. So is IonQ, a startup with backing from Alphabet. Neutral Atom Similar to the ion-trap method, except it uses, you guessed it, neutral atoms.

Among the most anticipated uses of quantum computers is the ability to create new chemicals, like catalysts for producing nitrogen-based fertilizers or for use in cells in higher-powered batteries. Quantum computing could also be used to crack most commonly used forms of digital encryption. It may one day also be used to streamline logistics and delivery operations, as well as speeding up machine learning applications.

The concept of “quantum supremacy” showcases the resources unique to quantum computers, such as direct access to entanglement and superposition. However, classical computers have resources of their own such as a hierarchy of memories and high-precision computations in hardware, various software assets, and a vast knowledge base of algorithms, and it is important to leverage all such capabilities when comparing quantum to classical.

Preferred Networks(PFN)

Motivation-Driven (熱意を元に): PFNの組織文化を表す上で欠かすことができないのは、メンバーのモチベーション主導である、ということです。モチベーションがある(つまり”熱中している”)ということは、真剣に成果と向き合っている、ということを意味します。プロジェクトの成果に意義を見出し、強いモチベーションがあれば、私たちはそれぞれのチームのメンバーの成果にも貢献しようとします。これはチームワークで成果を出す、ということとも同義です。このカルチャーがあるからこそ、私たちは非常にフラットで、フレキシブル、かつ高いパフォーマンスを誇る組織であり続けられるのです。 Learn or Die (死ぬ気で学べ): PFNのメンバーは全員、学ぶことに非常に貪欲です。PFNが挑戦する分野は変化の大きな分野であり、その中で私たちが最先端であり続ける為には、学ぶことが唯一の方法です。私たちは一つのアイデアや、一つの技術、一つのドメインに固執しません。たとえば、PFNのソフトウェアエンジニアは、ハードウェアで新しいチャレンジをすることを望み、ハードウェアのリサーチャーはHCIデザインに自分の分野を切り替えることにわくわくします。その結果、PFNは多様なバックグラウンドを持つメンバーによって構成される、真の学習組織になるのです。 Proud, but Humble (誇りを持って、しかし謙虚に): PFNはテクノロジーをコアとする会社です。私たちは、自分たちの成果に挑戦し続けます。そうすることで、最高の人材を魅了し、仲間を増やし続けます。同時に私たちは、何が自分たちでは実現できないか、ということについても正しい理解を持っています。世の中に知らない事象や技術があることを認識し、それだからこそ、多様な専門分野を持つメンバーのアイデアを最大限にリスペクトできるのです。 Boldly Do What No One Has Done Before (誰もしたことがないことを大胆に為せ): より良い未来を描いて、技術で世界を変える ー 新しいソフトウェアやハードウェア、新しいサービスやビジネスの変革、これまでにない市場の創出に私たちは挑戦します。「PFNにしかできないこと」をやることが、社会における私たちの使命だと考えます。

イエバエからは植物用の肥料と動物用の飼料を製造することができます。イエバエの幼虫の排泄物をペレット化したものが肥料に、幼虫を乾燥させたものが動物性タンパク質飼料になります。この肥料や飼料の効果は、わかりやすくいえば栄養が豊富なこと。例えばイエバエでつくった餌を食べた魚は、通常の餌で育てるより約4割も大きく育ちます。つまり、餌の量を半分くらいに減らしても、いままでと同じ大きさの食用魚を提供できるわけです。また、最高級飼料よりも魚たちが好んで食べてくれます。肥料には、農作物の収穫量を増やすほか、病原菌を抑制してくれる働きがあります。 さらに注目すべきは、「食料残渣(食品製造や外食産業でうまれる余剰物)」と「畜糞(家畜の排泄物)」を処理できることです。いまは食料残渣の多くが焼却処理されるほか、畜糞は日本だけでも年間8,000万トンが排出されており、現在は広大な土地で2〜3カ月かけて微生物によって分解されています。しかもこの処理でメタンガスなどの有害な発酵ガスが発生します。ところがイエバエの幼虫は、これらを食べてくれます。彼らは畜糞の窒素分を吸収し、消化酵素がかかった土は肥料に変換し、そのあと土から出た幼虫は乾燥して飼料にします。つまり、これまで処理にコストがかかっていた廃棄物が原料になるため、お金をもらいながらイエバエを育てることができる。無から有をつくるのではなく、マイナスだったものからプラスを生み出すことができるんです。 これにより、化学物質に頼らなくても、これまで不要とされてきた畜糞で動物や植物を育てることができる。イエバエの技術をうまく利用できれば、完全に自然な食物連鎖での食糧生産も実現するはずです。

Problems involving combinatorial and continuous optimization are ubiquitous in our modern life. Classic examples include lead compound optimization in the development of medicine, frequency band and/or transmission power optimization in wireless communications, sparse coding for compressed sensing, Boltzmann sampling in machine learning, portfolio optimization in Fin Tech, and many others. Most of those problems belong to the non-deterministic polynomial (NP), NP-complete, and NP-hard classes in complexity theory and require exponential resources as the problem size increases. The QNN exploits quantum parallel searching at below OPO threshold, collective symmetry breaking at OPO threshold, and exponential probability amplification of the solution state at above OPO threshold to address this limitation.

The Active Denial System (ADS) is needed because it’s the first non-lethal, directed-energy, counter-personnel system with an extended range greater than currently fielded non-lethal weapons. Most counter-personnel non-lethal weapons use kinetic energy (rubber rounds, bean bags, etc.). A kinetic-based system has a higher risk of human injury, and its effectiveness varies in relation to the size, age and gender of the target. The Active Denial System, however, is consistently effective regardless of size, age and gender and has a range greater than small-arms range. The Active Denial System will provide military personnel with a non-lethal weapon that has the same effect on all human targets.

New technology developed by a team of scientists at Harbin Institute of Technology’s Complex Flow and Heat Transfer Lab has made it easier for a submarine, or torpedo, to travel at extremely high speeds underwater. In theory, a supercavitating vessel could reach the speed of sound underwater, or about 5,800km/h, which would reduce the journey time for a transatlantic underwater cruise to less than an hour, and for a transpacific journey to about 100 minutes.

三菱重工業は、防衛省の委託を受けて研究開発を進めているステルス戦闘機の試作機を、来年1月に初飛行させる方針を固めた。国内企業による初のステルス戦闘機開発で、防衛省は性能やコストを確認した上で、実用化するかどうか2018年度までに最終判断する方針だ。 ステルス機は中国やロシアが既に試作機を飛行させるなど開発を進めている。日本も09年に、世界最高のステルス性を備えた米国のF22の導入を目指したが、情報流出を警戒する米国の禁輸措置で断念した。このため、防衛力の強化には独自技術の蓄積が必要と判断。国内企業の戦闘機生産も、日米で共同開発した戦闘機F2全94機の生産が11年に完了してから途絶えており、国内防衛産業の生産基盤や技術の維持、向上を図る狙いもある。 政府は00年度以降、ステルス技術の研究に着手。09年度からは、総事業費392億円をかけて試作機の開発を進めていた。試作機のステルス関連技術はすべて三菱重工業など国内企業が開発。敵のレーダーから届いた電波を真っすぐに反射して探知されないよう、機体や外板接合面の形状を設計した。 航空自衛隊に配備予定の最新鋭ステルス機F35(米ロッキード・マーチン社製)はレーダー上で直径10センチほどの物体として認識されるとされ、試作機もこれと同水準の性能を目指している。IHIや富士重工業なども、エンジンや主翼などの主要部材を受け持つ。 三菱重工がエンジンやシステムの作動テスト、基本的な飛行試験などを行った上で、来年3月末までに防衛省に機体を引き渡す。同省は15年度から2年間かけて実戦を想定した試験飛行を重ね、ステルス性や飛行性能を詳しく検証する方針。航空自衛隊が保有する戦闘機のうち、F2が30年代ごろから退役するため、後継機の選択肢に国産ステルス機を加えたい考えだ。

Weighing only 16 grams, the Black Hornet looks like a tiny toy helicopter. But it’s really a nano-size piece of military hardware unlike anything on the battlefield today — experimental robot flies and hummingbirds not withstanding. The PD-100 Black Hornet Personal Reconnaissance System, unveiled to the American public for the first time last week at the Association of the United States Army Expo in Washington, D.C., is a drone (actually, a pair of them) that a soldier can carry and operate as easily as he or she would a radio.

Successful testing yesterday with our Quantum Stealth (light bending material) covering a UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle). The UAV was able to taking off, fly a course at high speed, return back and land, repeating these tasks multiple times without any apparent change in the flight characteristics of the UAV. Currently only special authorized groups in the Canadian and U.S. militaries have access to the material and Quantum Stealth has been classified by both countries …

Mriya has set up 240 world records including transportation of the heaviest cargo with mass of 253 tons, the heaviest single peace of cargo with mass of 186,7 t as well as the longest cargo having length of 42,1 m. But the main thing is that Mriya serves people reliably. The airplane repeatedly participated in humanitarian operations. Thus in October, 2009 the AN-225 performed several flights on delivery generators to Samoa. They were necessary for renewal of work of Satala electric station damaged by tsunami. Only spacious cabin of the AN-225 could accommodate ten 12-tons generators at once. Each of them was as large as 6-meters container.

ICT投資という視点で国際比較すると、韓国、米国は21世紀以降も投資額が増えているにも関わらず、日本は減っています。その要因はずばり「情報の集積と利活用の遅れ」の影響が大きいと思われます。世界と比べると、わが国では新たに蓄積されるデータ量が少ないことが分かっています。さらに、蓄積された膨大な情報をいかに分析し、有用な情報を得るかということも大切なのですが、深い分析をするための訓練を受けた新たな大学卒業生数がわが国では少ないといえます。わが国の弱点は、こうしたところに課題を抱えており、またこの部分をどうするかというところに新たなビジネスチャンスも考えられます。

In the end, the location of the new economy is not in the technology, be it the microchip or the global telecommunications network. It is in the human mind. You can’t judge great teachers by their looks. Or their English. Or their profession. Or their education. Or where they were born, where they live, how they dress, how much money they make.

Every day, millions of office workers prepare memos and reports using scissors and paste, and store data on floppy disks, though they have plenty of digital memory in their computers and the cloud. Smartphone-toting executives have their mail dumped into in-boxes, one corporate message atop another. They are not using these objects, of course, but clicking on the pictures of them in popular word-processing programs like Microsoft Word or Google Docs. The icons linger like vestigial organs of an old-style office, 31 years after IBM’s personal computer brought work into the software age. They symbolize an old style of office software, built for the time when the desktop computer was … Continue reading

Space has been expanding since the Big Bang 13.7 billion years ago. And we know that when you look at some of the cosmology models, there were early periods of the universe where there was explosive inflation, where two points would’ve went receding away from each other at very rapid speeds. Nature can do it. So the question is, can we do it?

Russia’s Proton rocket crashed less than a minute after its liftoff from Baikonur, Kazakhstan on July 2, 2013. The rocket started veering off course right after leaving the pad, deviating from the vertical path in various directions and then plunged to the ground seconds later nose first. The payload section and the upper stage were sheered off the vehicle moments before it impacted the ground and exploded. By July 9, it is transpired that investigators sifting through the wreckage of the doomed rocket had found critical angular velocity sensors, DUS, installed upside down. Each of those sensors had an arrow that was suppose to point toward the top of the … Continue reading

(Your novel raises the question of whether technology will save us or destroy us. Which do you believe?) I believe science will save us…although I tend to be an optimist. Obviously, science has wonderful potential to control disease, create new fuel supplies, engineer efficient food sources, and even allow us to migrate to new worlds. The problem, of course, is that every technology is a double-edged sword. The rocket engine that carries the space shuttle can also carry warheads. The medical breakthroughs that can eradicate disease–genetic research, for example-if misused, can bring about the end of the human race. The question is not whether or not science will expand to … Continue reading

Recent studies on the functional morphology of fins of fishes show a surprising biomechanical effect of the fin rays. The bionic implementations of these constructions led to shape-adaptive wing profiles and flow control devices. The functional principle has been patented as “Fin Ray Effect” and a line of products based on this effect is currently being developed.

The U.S. Army Research Laboratory

The U.S. Army Research Laboratory’s (ARL), Army Research Office’s (ARO) initial concept of exploring DNA as a tagging and tracking method has led to the discovery of an optical scanning technology that can identify counterfeit electronic components before they are integrated into Army materiel. The technology also provides the capability to identify and track materiel in the absence of external tags or barcodes. This timely discovery will help address a significant challenge within the Army and DoD: the presence of counterfeit electronic components in military equipment.
