The Rosatom Corporate Academy, together with PostNauka, launched the Quantum World educational project, collecting the advanced knowledge of Russian scientists about
quantum mechanics and quantum technologies, including the quantum computer.
The project is a travel guide of three guides, each of which contains five multimedia explainers with infographics, tasks, video lectures and interviews with experts.
The content is open to a wide audience on the PostNauki website. The project is timed to coincide with the Year of Science and Technology in Russia and in an accessible form reveals to the visitors of the portal the field of quantum computing,
which has now become the subject of global technological competition.
According to PostNauka experts, if scientists manage to maintain high rates of increase in productivity, then in a decade quantum computers will be created that can support
train neural networks with several trillions of parameters and create models of complex chemical compounds.
Portal consultant, chief researcher of the Raman scattering laboratory of the P.N. Lebedev of the Russian Academy of Sciences Anatoly Masalov called the information
security is one of the most pressing areas of application of quantum technologies: “The widely used fiber communication today is not completely secure, because an attacker can
It is relatively easy to split off some of the light, “listen” to the stream of pulses, and try to decode the information transmitted along the fiber. Therefore, a fiber communication method was developed in which
information propagates in the form of light pulses containing single photons, not a multitude of them. Eavesdropping on such communication channels becomes impossible. ”
Alexey Akimov, Candidate of Physical and Mathematical Sciences, head of the Quantum Simulators group of the Russian Quantum Center, acted as a scientific consultant for the “Quantum World” project.
