Measurement Problem

The measurement problem in quantum mechanics is the unresolved problem of how (or if) wavefunction collapse occurs. The inability to observe this process directly has given rise to different interpretations of quantum mechanics, and poses a key set of questions that each interpretation must answer. The wavefunction in quantum mechanics evolves deterministically according to the Schrödinger equation as a linear superposition of different states, but actual measurements always find the physical system in a definite state.

That means that as the market for location data expands, and companies such as Airsage expand from serving backwater industries such as transportation to a more divisive digital marketing industry, there’s no assurance that a privacy backlash might force Sprint and Verizon to scale back its efforts.
