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

    … for a location strategy is coming from,” said Provenzano who sold Invite Media, a desktop DSP he co-founded, to Google for $81 million in 2010. “What made online [advertising] grow fast was cookie-based behavioral targeting. What’s the equivalent of that in the real world – not the virtual one?” Because location data derived from carrier networks…
