A simulated version of Paris where universities and telecommunication hubs are connected by a quantum communication network suggests that existing technology is already nearing the ability to create functional “quantum cities”
21 November 2022
Soon, we may be living in quantum cities. A computer simulation of a city where universities, data centres and telecommunication hubs are connected by quantum internet suggests that existing technology is close to making it a reality.
In a quantum city, telecommunications and institutions that deal with vast quantities of data would be connected in a network that uses quantum devices instead of modems and routers. These devices would take advantage of quantum effects to make information sharing …
