Researchers in Delft have succeeded in teleporting quantum information across a rudimentary network. This first of its kind is an important step towards a future quantum internet. This breakthrough was made possible by a greatly improved quantum memory and enhanced quality of the quantum links between the three nodes of the network. The researchers, working at QuTech—a collaboration between Delft University of

If we’ve learned anything about financial planning in the last few years, it’s that past performance is not the sole indicator of future performance. The economic unpredictability we’ve experienced accelerated the need for organizations to become more agile, and while CFOs are still engaged in the functions that traditionally defined the role — such as optimizing for control, transparency and visibility — they are now being tasked with taking on new responsibilities that enable organizational agility. These responsibilities require modernization and digitization.

While finance teams continue to produce forecasts and generate statutory and board reporting, C-suites are

RIT offers new minor in emerging field of quantum information science and technology

Mabel R. Acton

Rochester Institute of Technology students can soon begin earning a minor in an emerging field that could disrupt the science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) disciplines. RIT students can now take classes toward a minor in quantum information science and technology.

“This is a hot field garnering a lot of attention and we are excited to offer students a chance to gain some technical depth in quantum so they can take this knowledge and go the next step with their careers,” said Ben Zwickl, associate professor in RIT’s School of Physics and Astronomy and advisor for the minor. “It will
