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.

    … is a byproduct, it offers an interesting — if not, flawed — solution to the measurement problem. The accuracy of the data can range from a few hundred meters (roughly the size of a football field) to a few thousand (the size of a few city blocks) depending on the density of the network That means tying a device to a store visit in a remotely dense…
