Quantum Computation Research Center in Singapore
Singapore is setting up a $98M research center for quantum computation.
Great news, but what in the world does this quote mean?
Professor Artur Ekert, Director, Research Centre of Excellence, said: "At the moment, you can buy quantum cryptography systems, you can use it in some simple applications but somehow you have to trust companies that sell it to you or you have to test the equipment.
"The kind of quantum cryptography we develop here is probably the most sophisticated that is not available in any other countries so we have some ideas to make it so secure that you don't even have to trust equipment that you could buy from a vendor."
