The connected car is likely to play a fundamental role in the foreseeable Internet of Things. The connectivity aspect in combination with the available data (e.g. from GPS, on-board diagnostics, road sensors) and video (e.g. from dashcams and traffic cameras) streams enable a range of new applications, e.g., accident avoidance, online route planning, energy optimization, etc. These applications, however, come with an additional set of requirements which are not accommodated by the state-of-the-art stream processing platforms. We have built World-Wide Streams (WWS), a novel stream processing platform that has been explicitly designed with those requirements in mind. In this demo presentation, we will demonstrate a number of connected car scenarios that we have built on top of WWS.

Protecting photonic quantum states using topology

  • Blanco-Redondo A.

The use of topology to protect quantum information is well-known to the condensed-matter community and, indeed, topological quantum computing is a bursting field of research and one of the competing avenues to demonstrate that quantum computers can complete certain problems that classical computers cannot. In photonics, however, we are only ...
