Can you encode data at one ground station and have it immediately received at the other?
We are talking correlation only, never information transfer.
1) Arrange to create a single quantum system, from which you can split off two qubits
2) Transport qubits to where the business ends are: A. B
3) Extract classical bit from qubit 1 on location A at time T1: cbA. This is a random bit.
4) Extract classical bit from qubit 2 on location B at time T2: cbB. This is a random bit.
5) However we have correlation: cbA = ~cbB (so it's "correlation at a distance", not "action at a distance")
6) If QM is correct, the "single quantum system" effect holds over arbitrarily large distances, and even across time (whatever T1 and T2 are, and they can be exchanged due to special relativity)
After the CIA narrative outlet "The Washington Post" got bought, I figured the next move would be to get moneyed yuppies eat LSD unawares.
This must be it.
Whole-Food fed upper-class crusties consensualized by WaPo augmented reality, while Amazon tat & toilet paper ordered via Alexa is being delivered by drone to their well-defended burbclaves as Deep State operatives monitor their contentment level from Blue Horizon spysats.
Maybe the public cloud sucks it all up?
They also go massively into the RAM-rich smartphones, so production of modules for smartphones has been increased to the detriment of modules used in servers.
However, Forbes says that Gartner predicts:
Now, Gartner has predicted that DRAM and NAND prices could begin to decline next year, while potentially crashing in 2019. There have been some current trends that support this outlook. For instance, over the last two quarters, expenditures on equipment to produce DRAM is up by about 46%. Major manufacturers are also planning to limit memory content on devices. For instance, the DRAM content of the upcoming iPhone 8 is rumored to be capped at 3 GB, much like the current generation iPhone 7 Plus, as the company looks to keep costs in check.
A bunch of Oompah-Loompas, toiling behind the scenes at removing bales of hate from the premises all day long, singing loudly while they do so.

Shurely you are joking Mr. Hagan, or do you intend to imply that Mr. Babbage was up to more than he let on?
If you are sadistic, you give the ghosts their own machine learning algorithm...
In the sense of a Spitfire being a refinement of a Wright Brothers plane: Yes.
See my answer above.
Machines operate in an environment where the rules prevent them ever doing anything else, so it literally bounds their possible actions.
Well, the point is to allow the rules to be generated, discarded, rebuild, recompressed, weighted, tuned, indexed. analyzed, briefed, debriefed etc. at runtime.
So there are really are no fixed rules, except for the most simple reactive systems. It's like with the spoon, of which you have to realize there is none.
Morpheus knew this: You will always be faster... because they live in a world built on rules.
Morpheus reads a script...
(More in the area of "logic-based rule-based systems" as opposed "let's mess around till it works rule-based systems", there is actually a nice softcover by Cambrdige University Press by Robert Kowalski (who injected the mathematical logic part into Prolog) on what "rule-based systems and logical thinking" are about: "Computational Logic and Human Thinking: How to be Artificially Intelligent". (PDF here)Seems to be a good intro and a contender for a 21st-century update on all those books with titles "how to think logically" etc. that go back to the 19th century at least ... well the book on what is called Port Royal Logic came out in 1683, I see.)
"Blank Slate" AI has died back in the 60s I think (so has "Blank Slate" cognitivie science I would hope).
Well, "Artificial Life/Evolution" would be the closest to it nowadays, but that's a few layers down, so to say.

My dear academic fellow,
I contend that this is squarely in the tradition of
A better writeup can also be found here:
There is also this mucho-bucko paywalled article in the IEEE Computational Intelligence: A Survey of Learning Classifier Systems in Games which I'm currently reading, indeed I hadn't encountered the framework of the LCS until I stumbled upon said paper (even though I have a copy of Reinforcement Learning: An Introduction, printed 1998, somewhere. Getting old.)
The earlier-talked-about ALPHA air combat NPC also fits into this tradition, it just uses a fuzzy inference system (not sure what that is exactly, it involved another set of equations with sigmas, pis and indexed and/or hatted variables) to do its thing.
This will be 2020, so China may well have the tech in 2 months.
PUTIN PUTIN PUTLER! KIM JON UHNNN!
I had a good laugh earlier, as the Qatar-Saudi split-of-the.terror-supporters is now re-memed to be the work of ... "Russian Hackers"?
The narrative blaming Russia for the Qatar split does not have any evidence to substantiate it, and Sen. Warren went out of her way to ensure none might be revealed today. It is worth pointing out, however, that President Trump personally took credit for the split himself when it first happened, crediting it to his visit to Saudi Arabia just days prior.
Rather, it originates from Qatari state media having quoted the Qatari Emir saying something the Saudis didn’t like, and subsequently attributing the quote to “hackers.” US media outlets saw the word hackers, and naturally assumed Russia, and it appears that as with everything, this has quickly become something everyone is willing to assume is the case.
Is there anything these Russian Hackers can't do? Can they manipulated base reality by the power of Peek and Poke alone? Was phish-multiplying Jesus actually secretly Russian? More on this ... after this message!
(Maybe the Eurasian continent should start thinking about a first strike against the US with all that there is, a last-ditch effort to try to save the world from brainrot and insanity.)
It's not too slow, it's not too fast, it just has speed 1.
"While reaching this moment has certainly been a long road traveled (travelled?), it marks the end of an era for Yahoo!, as well as the beginning of a new chapter – it's an emotional time for all of us. Given the inherent changes to my role, I'll be leaving the company."
The paragraph's turn from auspicious young lady talk into an all-too-sudden "I'll be leaving the company" certainly caused some cognitive dissonance.
Woah. That drone sure comes in peace.
Also good against protestors wielding placards with various nonsensical statements.
I don't think anyone is suggesting that
You are trying to find meaning in a stament that is meant to confuse and dissemble.
You have already lost the game.
Let's have a framework here:
A year-long campaign to influence election outcomes is available for just $400,000, the study says. Whether such listings are in themselves an attempt at disinformation is certainly debatable. US intel agencies, Western politicians and security firms are nigh-on unanimous that attempts to influence the US presidential election last year were the work of the Kremlin.
Thank you for the daily anti-Putler inoculation, but that 400K number seems low fer sure. Lobbyists from at least two well-known Middle Eastern "US allies" implementing alternate forks of Abrahamian religions, as well as influential players like Soros G.. or Adelson S. (et al.) must think they are a bit of a sucker due to overspending?
I have heard you can order a box of loyalty on Amazon now.
Often bought together: a box of loyalty and a box of pride. Now with 20% off.
Same day shipping!
Yes, that's a buttabyte sized pic, right there!
Yes, like Sarah Connor.
> One only has to notice the outcome.
The outcome wasn't bad considering what was on offer. Sometimes you have to roll the hard six.
At least we haven't WWIII yet, even if Trump has been assimiliated by the swamp things he was supposed to be draining and we are moving to the realization of the neocon wet dream fast.
But I want my weekly Ukraine-victimizing / probably Putler financed hacker story!
I'm sure that's an anagram of something.

That or your "real time" is actually really...slow.
Recommending Greg Egan's "Permutation City". Read it now!
We just don't know.
So is this the first large-scale simulation since the Millenium simulation more than 10 years ago
Back then we had: This progress has been made possible by important algorithmic improvements in the employed simulation code, and the high degree of parallelization reached with it, allowing the computation to be done efficiently on a 512 processor partition of the IBM p690 supercomputer of the Computing Center of the Max-Planck Society (RZG). (That machine was actually POWER4 based)
Fantastic job, you get algorithm design, SCIENCE, investment in high-performance computing and massive parallelism (i.e. ENGINEERING), happy Nvidia shareholders, busy PhD-chaser and irate creationists all in one action. More like this!
crawl back to your sitcom reruns
Read again after update. It wasn't.
But what if the government covers up natural, replicable causes ...
Or a government cover-up actually is a natural, replicable cause?
It is more likely our current theories are woefully incomplete
I beg to differ. There is strong evidence that our current theories, though more "effective" than "fundamental", are quite complete indeed.
There is tons of things to work out and possibly a complete remodeling will be needed, but the speed of light is quite the fulcrum of everything.
These days, "alien contactors" need to show that they have at a minimum tenuous links to Russia, otherwise they won't make headlines.
This is what other people have to endure if the US blows up their whole power distribution infrastructure with carbon chaff because reasons.
Only in that case it's permanent.

No, society teaches it.
"Russian Hackers here, Russian Hackers there, subverting Britney Spears, poisoning muh democratic atmosphere"
RUSKERS shall be the neologism for "Russian Hackers", which for some reson have replaced Greys as eyeball-pulling headlineware. It's short, it's pity, it's to the point. You know you want it.
CHINKERS, NORKERS and ... uh ... ISRAKERS?
The fact they tried to hack registration databases and voting software should be very concerning
There is not even any information about that at all.
So he'd probably love it if the democrats take back the house and senate, to guarantee a state of partisan gridlock.
Back to the Clinton years? Then we watch OJ making a run for the border again. Oh great.
CNN reported suspected Russian fake news plants precipitated the crisis that has seen several Arab states impose sanctions on Qatar.
Yup, blame all of Eurasia's unforessen events on "fake news" that made it past goodthink control, planted by those wiley Eastasians.
WHY DOESN'T BIG BROTHER DO SOMETHING?
I haven't been following this stupidity much because it has been well-known that Qatar likes to transfer money to Sunni Wahabbis and Takfiris of the most flamboyant colour for about 2 decades now. What makes it ridiculous is that Qatar is being accused of supporting Shia Iran. I mean, what the actual f... Is a new media bubble is being created for a little Riyad-supported takeover? I mean, it worked in Yemen, right?
Why doesn't El Reg open a sidebar on "sponsored news about Russia".
Then we could find out about evil undermining termitic Russians (and now Chinese) separately from all the rest.
> the FBI's independence.
I spilled my coffee you bastards.
Suicide bomber outfits may think this a good metric.
It feels like the early 90s again.
Then in the late 90s companies noticed that they had hollowed out their skills base and stopped the madness. Outsourcing morphed into "Rightsourcing" (yes I know, management fad designations are even worse than IT fad designators, but we have "node.js" as the kewl way of saying "i'm totally hip to using an interpreter for one of the worst languages ever in an arse-backwards scenario", right?)
So, when will the pendulum swing back again?
(These exoplanet dispatches increasingly read like something from Frederick Pohl's "Gateway". No Heechees though)
They set a Slamhound on Turner's trail in New Delhi, slotted it to his pheromones and the color of his hair. It caught up with him on a street called Chandni Chauk and came scrambling for his rented BMW through a forest of bare brown legs and pedicab tires. Its core was a kilogram of recrystallized hexogene and flaked TNT.
He didn't see it coming. The last he saw of India was the pink stucco façade of a place called the Khush-Oil Hotel.
