Canada's Defense Department Is Funding a Quantum Radar System

Cutting-edge physics has driven military innovation for over a century, from Marie Curie’s x-ray machines of World War I to the quest for the atomic bomb during World War II. But these days, government defense departments are funding even more esoteric pursuits. We learned recently that the US Department of Defense is…Read more...

New Research Could Help Bring Secure Quantum Communication to Everyone

In September, the Chinese Academy of Sciences president Chunli Bai, and President Anton Zeilinger of the Austria Academy of Sciences in Vienna, made the first quantum-secured video call. But when will you get to take part in this? Will there ever be a secure quantum Slack at your workplace?Read more...

The subtle way Google plans to use its greatest skill to combat ISIS (GOOG, GOOGL)

The 13-year-old girl's explanation for why she had decided to leave her happy family in London to fly East and join ISIS was frighteningly naive: "She told me, 'Well, I was looking at photos online and I thought I was going to go live in the Islamic Disneyworld,'" quotes Yasmin Green, head of research and development at Jigsaw, the think-tank spun out of Google earlier this year.  " It's so incredible because what you and I see in the media, nothing would support the impression that this is...

Why people Join ISIS: 3 Studies

A study has been released that provides some statistical data regarding different reasons that Americans and other Westerners join ISIS. The study can be found here: http://www.defenseone.com/threats/20...seone_today_nl "Topping the list: defending Sunni Muslims. At bottom: rejection of Western culture." "It is a small sample," writes Defense One's Patrick Tucker, and "not entirely random, but given the difficulty of surveying a group like ISIS, still provides value. How much value? Micha...
