Quantum Squeezing and AI Game Building

Quantum squeezing, a novel method aimed at enhancing sensor sensitivity, is being tapped by researchers in the science community. These scientists are engaged in studying cosmic phenomena like the spiralling collision of two black holes, which create space-time ripples commonly known as gravitational waves. Capturing these waves is quite challenging as their intensity dissipates when they reach Earth, necessitating exceptionally fine detection equipment. The advent of ‘quantum squeezing’ serves as a promising solution to this challenge and may find applications in the manufacture of more precise gyroscopes, magnetometers, and clocks – all vital tools for navigation. This technique is now being explored by tech companies and military organizations, like Canadian start-up Xanadu and DARPA’s Inspired initiative.

In other leading tech news, Google DeepMind has developed a new generative model that can transform text into video games. Termed ‘Genie’, this model uses a simple text description or a sketch to develop a basic, playable video game reminiscent of 2D console classics like Super Mario Bros. However, these games function at one frame per second, as opposed to the standard 30-60 frames per second seen in modern video games. While Genie is not ready for public release, it could transform into a tool for creating video games and also contribute to advancements in robotics.
