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

    … calculations leave behind a binary residue — a pool of unstructured data that carriers originally kept to improve the workings of its network. When analyzed correctly, the so-called switching data holds the key to something much more powerful: the daily movements of millions of people throughout their day. Vistar, a digital-out-of-home startup, wants…
