IIoT, Virtual and Augmented Reality Technologies: Applications to Industry 4.0

on 28-05-2024

... Instituto de Telecomunicações, University of Beira Interior, IEEE ComSoc, and VTS Portugal Chapters are organising the Seminar “IIoT, Virtual and Augmented Reality Technologies: Applications to Industry 4.0”, with the keynote speakers Miroslaw Mazurek and Pawel Dymora, both Professors from Department of Complex Systems, Faculty of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Poland.

The seminars were hosted at the Faculty of Engineering (Amphitheatre 8.01), University of Beira Interior, on May 28, 02:00 p.m.

The seminars will approach the wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) and Information Technology Systems: Security Issues in WSN (Encryption and Cryptography), Virtual Private Networks, and Security Issues in WSN and Internet of Things (IoT) and its implementation in Energy Efficient Systems; and virtual and Augmented Reality Technology and Industry 4.0: selected aspects and applications in aircraft pilot training process, and Non-Destructive Testing and Non-Destructive Evaluation.

What is nonclassical about quantum interference?

on 23-05-2024

... On Quantum Tech Day, Instituto de Telecomunicações, Aveiro, hosts the talk "What is nonclassical about quantum interference?”, with Lorenzo Catani, a researcher at International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory (INL), on 23rd May 2024, 02:30 p.m.

This event occurs in the scope of the Portuguese Quantum Communications Infrastructure - PTQCI project.

Lorenzo Catani's research mostly focuses on the intersection between quantum foundations and quantum computation. In particular, he aims to identify the features of quantum theory that constitute a departure from the classical worldview and to show how these can be resources for quantum computational advantage in information processing tasks. He also is conducting a new mathematical framework that provides a realistic and interpretationally unproblematic account of quantum theory.

He holds a BSc in Physics (2012) and an MSc in Theoretical Physics (2014) from the University of Bologna, where he was also a student of the Collegio Superiore, one of the Superior Graduate Schools in Italy. He also holds an MRes (2015) and a PhD (2018) from University College London, obtained as part of the doctoral training program in delivering quantum technologies. His doctoral thesis was titled Nonclassicality as a computational resource. Before moving to INL, he held postdoctoral positions at Chapman University in California (2018–2021) and Technische Universität Berlin (2021–2023).
