• The impact of quantum computing on internet security will be so great we must start planning now. • Its exponentially higher processing power will render widely used cryptography obsolete. • 'Security agility' – crypto agility – is a key concept in being quantum-ready. Strategic thinking has enabled many of mankind’s greatest successes. But when some leaps are just too big for a single bound, or seem too far into the future, strategic acting – incremental, consistent decision-making consistent with a long-term vision – can serve as an enabler for future success. While an operationally viable quantum computer seems beyond the horizon to most, the steps needed to prepare for its inevitability are indeed within sight. We need more advanced planning in cyberspace to prepare for the impact of quantum computing,...

LG Electronics works with Dutch firm to develop quantum computing technology for multiphysics simulation

LG Electronics works with Dutch firm to develop quantum computing
[Courtesty of LG Electronics] SEOUL -- Dutch quantum-computational software developer Qu&Co tied up with LG Electronics to develop quantum computing technology for multiphysics simulation. They will launch a three-year joint study and use research achievements to solve the problem of multiphysics.Multiphysics is the coupled processes or systems involving more than one simultaneously occurring physical field and the studies of and knowledge about these processes and systems. Multiphysics simulations are used to analyze and validate them.LG Electronics said the joint study would increase the competitiveness of future technologies by utilizing quantum computing that uses quantum bits or qubits, based on the principles of quantum theory, which explains the nature and behavior of energy and matter on the quantum level. Theoretically, a...

LG Electronics to Develop Quantum Computing Tech with Dutch Firm
(image: Korea Bizwire) SEOUL, April 15 (Korea Bizwire) — LG Electronics Inc. said Thursday it has formed ties with Dutch quantum algorithm developer Qu & Co to conduct joint research on quantum computing technology in a move to boost competitiveness in future technologies. Under the research agreement, the two companies will develop quantum computing technology for multiphysic simulations over the next three years. Multiphysics refer to systems that involve simultaneously occurring multiple physical phenomena. Multiphysics simulations are used to analyze and verify such systems. LG said current computers are limited in analyzing complex systems, and expects the substantially faster quantum computing technology to process them and help resolve industrial problems that account for multiple physical phenomena. LG said it expects quantum...

PARIS — Numerous companies and websites in France suffered outages and disruptions to services after a fire swept through a cloud computing provider's facility.Disruption continued Thursday after OVH said the fire erupted early Wednesday in a room at one of its data centres in Strasbourg in eastern France. No one was injured in the blaze, which destroyed one of the site's four data centres and damaged another one.“Firefighters were immediately on the scene but could not control the fire," CEO Octave Klaba tweeted. He advised companies to activate their disaster recovery plans.The company did not give an immediate explanation for the fire. Klaba said the company would work on restoring services and checking fiber optic connections.On Wednesday, Strasbourg Airport tweeted that “due to the fire that broke out last night in the OVH Cloud company...
