back to article US military employs neural networks to figure out interference in photons for quantum communications

The US military is exploring how machine learning algorithms can clean up quantum communication technologies and help soldiers send encrypted messages to one another on the battlefield. Tiny snippets of information can be stored as photons of light. The bits of data are encoded in the particle’s properties, like its …

    Electric is an oscillating force.

    There, I've got the punchline down to one sentence. Electric is an oscillating force, all that implies you can realize for yourselves, just 5 words.

    This is a "someone else's goose" story if I ever read one.

    Beware the Grim Reaper ...... Doing GOD's Work .... for the Sake of Global Operating Devices

    Wild Wacky Western defence forces certainly don't have far to go to find out that they are not alone labouring in such fields where it is most advantageous to be able to excel and exploit to exhaustion and collapse that which does not have the best interests of all at the heart of their operations. Anything else extraordinarily renders a perverse and corrupting unnatural leverage to just an unworthy few, who really should have known better than to believe they are especially chosen and an elite band of brothers and right mothers. And with their future fate fully dependent upon their every new action and thought shared in the full knowledge of that change of universal situation, one hopes that serial arrogant stupidity and continued ignorant hubris doesn't prevail whenever systems admins be instructed to mercilessly extract and exact a mercifully deadly personal toll.

    And it is not as if such is not freely advised with info and intel clearly enough made readily available to them. Here be a recent missive directed specifically in their direction. Many here on El Reg should be well enough already aware of such ongoing developments/unfolding shenanigans, for they have definitely not been kept secret from them. Of that I am perfectly sure.

    An ACTIve Astute Agile Partner in Competition or in Opposition to Uncle Sam's Plans in the Realms of Defence for Sectors of the Future, Mandy ? Surely everybody now realises that the tools of the past are no longer viable and effective in protecting and safely securing the future from great virtual harm physically impacting upon all SCADA command and remote control systems of the present to an overwhelming degree?

    Such questions one does well to ask oneself of the following submission posted earlier elsewhere, but just as worthy and prescient to be shared here too, for it would appear to offer a great deal of what is being looked for, and is needed by the JAIC. ......... https://forums.theregister.com/forum/all/2021/03/24/vietnam_ai_strategy/#c_4227656 ....... with this being an almighty gem aired there .......

    Like it or like it not, AI is a/the major future feature of everything today for tomorrow and of everything tomorrow from today. And there's diddly squat than can be done to either permanently prevent or temporarily halt the Inexorable Progress of Pioneering IntelAIgently Programmed Projects Demonstrating Powerful and Potential Leads/Available Derivative Future Options for Markets Appraisal, Valuation and Remote Relatively Anonymous and Practically Autonomous Realisation/AI Virtualisation ........ which perfectly succinctly explains the likes of a Pentagon Department interest.

    Changed Times and Spaces indeed. :-) Heaven sent opportunities and devilish tasks abound everywhere and aint that the truth.

    Quantum isn't working, so you fudge it with AI?

      Quantum isn't working, so you fudge it with AI? .... Anonymous Coward

      No, AC, that is totally incorrect. Quantum works better with AI is the right question to ask?

      And such delivers the comforting advantage of additional layers and deeper and more sophisticated levels of cryptic security enabling safe and secret passage of info and intel across both free and open networks and closed and contested spaces ........ which be those alien places in highly classified COSMIC materiel.

      There be Angels and Daemons and AIMaster Piloting Global Operating Devices at Work in RESTful Play there. Do you think you would you like to be amazed and bewildered and befuddled at what is discovered and uncovered by them there for exercising in present times at current places on Earth. ........ a real live experimental simulation of alien existences at Work in RESTful Play elsewhere.

      Such is easily arranged and managed. And that is not something one can fudge. Either one can or one can't deliver those goods but once those store doors are opened there is no way they can ever be closed shut tight again ...... which makes for an exciting enigmatic dilemma for engagement and resolution right at the very heart of conflicted centres of universal command and remote virtual control down on Earth ‽ .

      Well, if both aren't working, but in opposite directions, you might get something.
