Researchers at the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) performed the first demonstration of quantum-enhanced noise radar, opening the door to promising advancements in radar technology.
The researchers showed how the quantum process can outperform a classical version of the radar by a factor of 10, enabling the detection of objects that are faster, smaller, or further away – all while making the radar less detectable to targets.
Originally built as a way to secure cryptocurrency transactions, blockchain is a digital platform that verifies and records exchanges. Blockchains are global networks that can have millions of users, each adding information/data which is secured through cryptography. This creates an indisputable history of these transactions that cannot be modified by a single user, eliminating opportunities for fraud, and it is this feature that has some heralding blockchain as as a way of increasing cybersecurity.
Scientists say they have developed a new quantum sensor that can outperform existing technologies and promises significant advancements in long-range 3D imaging and monitoring the success of cancer treatments...
Each year, the Canadian Engineering Competition (CEC) brings together 150 of the most innovative and creative engineering undergraduate students from across the nation to compete against each other in design, consulting, presentation and debate. This year, CEC 2019 was held here at the University of Waterloo – and the Programming competition was coordinated by our own computer engineering student, Thomas Dedinsky. Not only was Dedinsky dedicated to help organize the event, he also created the code that powered the Programming competition.
We are so very saddened to hear of the passing of one of our own students, Mohammad “Mishkat” Islam, who was in his second year of our undergraduate program. On behalf of the ECE department, we send our heartfelt condolences to Mishkat’s family and loved ones.
