The “Blue Brain Project”, a major part of the “Human Brain Project”, which was confidently and loudly advertised by its initiator Henry Markram a few years ago, has for the first […]

An upcoming technological revolution based on a 100-year old, but still not broadly understood physics - The second generation of quantum technologies

100 years ago, physicists were finally ready to tackle a question that goes back to ancient times: “Detect the inmost force which binds the world, and guides its course”. It was the very question about the smallest fundamental particles from which everything is made. At the end of this phase, around the year 1925, stood […]
