A New Element for Future Quantum Network | Ytterbium

Element for Future Quantum Network - Ytterbium

Ytterbium-based materials can amplify quantum signals to diffuse them over long distances. The material can preserve photons (carrying quantum data) from external disturbances so that they can be synchronized. Quantum cryptography is an attempt to enable users to communicate via more secure techniques than those guaranteed by conventional cryptography. At present, it uses optical fiber over ...

AI Can Predict Audience Attendance By Analyzing A Movie Trailer

AI Can Predict Audience Attendance from movie trailer

A new machine learning model predicts what audiences will most likely watch a movie based on its trailer.  It uses Collaborative Filtering method to extract trailer features like faces, objects, landscapes, etc.  These features are then combined with attendance and demographic data to the predict audience attendance. Trailers are the most important part of the ...
