Things are quiet in QIRG at the moment, so to liven things up in advance of IETF/IRTF:

Last week, I gave a seminar at National University of Singapore’s Centre for Quantum Technologies (CQT):

Speaker: Rodney Van Meter, Keio University
Abstract: Experimental progress toward a general-purpose Quantum Internet is advancing rapidly, but the challenges in building a Quantum Internet extend far beyond having a physical layer that can create entanglement across a distance. Quantum Internet nodes must share management of distributed tomography, errors, entanglement swapping, multiplexing of resources, selection of routes, and more to support application-requested actions for distributed cryptographic functions, quantum sensor networks, and distributed quantum computation. I will introduce our RuleSet-based Quantum Internet architecture and the simulation tools that are enabling us to develop working protocols, and discuss the need for multi-disciplinary organizations to address the broad range of problems.
