Twin-Field QKD allows secure quantum key distribution over 500 km of optical fibre.
STG conversational dialogue system paired with semantic knowledge bases that connect to linked data supporting complex queries has been accepted to be presented in the forthcoming and highly competitive conference, SIGDial2018 in Australia, July 12–14 2018, Melbourne.
An architecture for an intelligent personal assistant that allows users to explore an information space by conversing with STG spoken Dialogue system has been demonstrated at IEEE ICASSP conference during the Show&Tell sessions in April 2018, Calgary Canada.
STG invites PhD students with strong background in machine learning, deep learning or signal processing, who are in their second year of higher to apply for internships with us by sending their CV to firstname.lastname@example.org
Looking forward for the top performance in the new ASR challenge: CHiME5.
TREL shows in Nature Communications that quantum dot devices based on indium phosphide are capable of electrically injected single photon and entangled photon pair emission around 1550 nm. Entanglement fidelity of 87 ± 4% is sufficient for the application of one-way error correction protocols and the emission at 1550 nm can be directly integrated with existing long distance quantum communication and cryptography systems.
Proof-of-principle demonstration of quantum digital signatures (QDS) mediated by measurement-device-independent quantum key distribution (MDI-QKD). Published today in Nature Communications TREL has devised an efficient protocol to distil multiple signatures from the same block of data, thus reducing the statistical fluctuations in the sample and greatly enhancing the final QDS rate in the finite-size scenario.
SCAVENGE tackles sustainable design, protocols, architectures and algorithms for next generation 5G cellular networks. Our overall purpose is to allow mobile systems and especially their constituting base stations, femto, small-cells, mobile devices and sensors to take advantage of sources harvesting ambient energy (such as renewable sources).
Besides, SCAVENGE will set up a training network for early-stage researchers (ESRs), who will contribute to the design and implementation of sustainable 5G mobile networks in Europe, and lead the related key scientific, technological, and industrial initiatives.
Replicate is a Smart Cities and Communities lighthouse project comprised of 36 partners across Europe (Bristol being one of the lighthouse cities), funded by the EC’s H2020 research and innovation programme and ranked #1 amongst all proposals in the call. This project aims to bring together cities, industry and citizens to demonstrate smart city solutions across energy, transport & ICT and business models that can be scaled up and replicated, and that lead to measurable benefits for all.
Clear5G’s objective is to design, develop, validate, and demonstrate an integrated convergent wireless network for Machine Type and Mission Critical Communication (MTC/MCC) services for Factories of the Future (FoF). Clear5G will deliver technical solutions addressing the challenges of massive deployment of connected devices, security, ultra-low latency and ultra-high reliability in FoF applications, like remote maintenance and closed loop control systems. The requirements of these complex scenarios will be met through the convergence of different wireless technologies, enabled by protocol and architecture enhancements proposed by Clear5G.
BT and Toshiba today opened the UK’s first secure quantum communication showcase at BT’s research and development centre in Ipswich.
