Lockdown Lab Life
Grounded physicists are exploring the use of online and virtual-reality conferencing, and AI-controlled experiments, to maintain social distancing. Post-pandemic, these positive innovations could make science more accessible and environmentally-friendly.

Is Causality Fundamental?
Untangling how the human perception of cause-and-effect might arise from quantum physics, may help us understand the limits and the potential of AI.

Building Agency in the Biology Lab
Physicists are using optogenetics techniques to make a rudimentary agent, from cellular components, which can convert measurements into actions using light.

Think Quantum to Build Better AI
Investigating how quantum memory storage could aid machine learning and how quantum interactions with the environment may have played a role in evolution.

Outside the Box
A proposed quantum set-up that could predict your game-playing strategy resurrects Newcomb’s classic quiz show paradox.

A photon may be considered as a disturbance in the objective reality of the void. What that reality is called makes no difference, except to those with prejudice against any model that states that the void is not a vacuum but must have substance.It is unknowable since we appear to have no information from it that travels across the Prime reality interface to inform our conceptualisation of it.

A disturbance in the objective reality of the void will only be detectable if it is able to...


It is clear that isolated systems do not exist in nature. Thus, the interaction between the target system and its environment always leads to decoherence. The traditional decoherence theory developed by Zeh, Zurek and others is based, however, on linear master equations. As a result, there is a time interval, where decoherence takes place. Recently it was demonstrated that the entropy (information) exchange between the system and its environment results in a nonlinear Schrodinger equation (see...


Plenty of alternative interpretations of the math of micro-physics. Bohmiam physics, for example, and not to mention Werner Hofer's re-evaluation of QM (called micro-dynamics): http://uk.arxiv.org/abs/quant-ph/9806066

I agree fully with prof. Hofer's remarks regarding the arbitrary assumption that defines the QM philosofy, but not necessary agree with all aspects of prof. Hofer's developed microdynamics.

Hofer on QM: "The particle wave has no intrinsic potential energy according...
