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.

  • With Carrier Data, Vistar Media Finds Foothold in Mobile Ad Fray

    … in an anonymized and privacy-sensitive way. Here’s how it works. The ten year-old Airsage has worked out agreements with Sprint and Verizon to install hardware within the carrier’s firewall that collects, anonymizes and sends the switching data to its own servers in real-time. Then, the company uses the raw data, which includes information about…
