seguridad cuántica

Algorithms for a safe Quantum messaging system

Grupo AIA ´s new project kick-off brings this technology closer to industrialization.

This is a previous project follow-up for the Institute of Photonic Sciences (ICFO), involved in error correction algorithms for encoding and decoding messages using “LDPC” (Low Density Parity Codes) for the encryption of messages transmitted by a quantum channel through optical fiber.

This second phase is targeted to industrialization – the before mentioned algorithms will be implemented using a specially-designed hardware (GPU’s) which considers the characteristics of parallel computation and memory management for optimal performance.

The developed software will manage safe key distribution for any application requiringit.

This technology will ensure a totally safe messaging system due to its quantum characteristics that will prevent intercepting and decrypting messages, unlike current technology which could eventually be compromised with the advancement of computational capacity.

Grupo AIA develops algorithms for Quantum Cryptography

AIA’s Innovation Team has completed a software library for post processing in Quantum Key Distribution. With this software, the Institute of Photonic Sciences (ICFO) will be able to implement fully secure communications over conventional optical fiber. Quantum Cryptography is posed as a key technology to replace current cryptographic methods, which face a growing risk of becoming obsolete because of the rapid advances in Quantum Computing.

A thesis transferring neutrino ´s experience to the industrial sector

Last November 27th, Sebastian Piña Otey has successfully defended his doctoral thesis entitled “Deep learning and Bayesian techniques applied to Big Data in the industry and neutrino oscillations”. Although this doctorate thesis is physics centered, there is also an industrial component developed with AIA within the industrial doctorate program framework sponsored by the Catalonian Government called: “Doctorats Industrials de la Generalitat. Sebastian ´s thesis, codirected by Vicens Gaitan, AIA´s representative, along with Thorsten Lux, neutrino´s team main researcher from the Institut de Física d’Altes Energies (IFAE), has developed a project that connects neutrino oscillations (mentioned in a previous blog post) with cutting-edge Deep Learning technology.

The thesis has focused on a new approach for data analysis and extraction of relevant information for the T2K neutrino experiment (Tokai to Kamioka) in Japan. In particle physics experiments, and more particularly, neutrino experiments, data analysis has three main components: detectors´ direct data processing, theoretical model simulation and model parameters determination. These three key aspects are essential for a rigorous and correct scientifically based results´ delivery. Sebastian ´s research had an impact on all three aspects by introducing different proofs of concepts of new technologies.

Firstly, he has successfully implemented an algorithm of Graph Neural Networks to help detecting not physic ambiguous signs during the simulation of a T2K future detector. As a result, the effect on the neutrino can be rebuilt correctly, increasing the performance as compared to traditional techniques. (The paper has been submitted to the Physical Review D and is currently under evaluation. Pre-publication can be download at https://www.tdx.cat/ )

Secondly, Sebastian has combined the normalizing flows technology, invertible neural networks that allow to evaluate and generate data from a probability distribution based on traditional statistical techniques, rejection sampling under the algorithm of Exhaustive Neural Importance Sampling (ENIS). More precisely, along with his supervisors, they have applied ENIS to generate data from a typical neutrino event in T2K, the interaction called charged-current quasi-elastic (CCQE). This paper was published on July 16th in the Physical Review D

Finally, as mentioned in our previous blog post, the normalizing flows were used to determine the parameters of the two neutrino flavors oscillation model. This paper was also published in the Physical Review D on June 2nd

However, the experience gained by the somewhat exotic application of the neutrino oscillations was also transferred to the industrial field. Sebastian and Vicens worked with Red Eléctrica Española through Elewit and could show the impact and value added of these techniques on potential projects of our clients. Thus, Sebastian has successfully achieved our first industrial doctorate, potentiating AIA´s relation with the IFAE and showing the contribution of the industrial sector to pure research.

COP25-cumbre-clima

Regina Llopis participates at the Climate Change World Summit

What can women contribute to climate change prevention?  Based on this premise, a round table was held at the green zone of the Climate Change World Summit in Madrid, COP25, with the special participation of influential women from different fields to discuss Climate Change problems and how they could help to combat it.

Regina Llopis, president of Grupo AIA, Andrea Barber, cofounder and CEP of Rated Power; Mari Luz Cádiz, researcher at Universidad de Oporto); Patricia Fernández, researcher at Centro de Biotecnología y Genómica de Plantas, (UPM-INIA); Cristina Romera, researcher at the Instituto de Ciencias del Mar (CESIC) and moderated by Ángeles Heras, Secretary of State for Universities, Research, Development, and Innovation have participated at this round table and was promoted by the Women Observatory, Science and Innovation.

A variety of problems and challenges facing the planet were exposed at this Climate Summit.  Among the solutions proposed, Cristina Romera has mentioned the research done on plastic recycling and new materials to replace the oil by-product. Patricia Fernández explained how the research on plants is combating pests and allowing the formulation of new pesticides based on plants´ natural defense mechanisms, so efforts have been made towards intelligent and sustainable agriculture.

However, implementing these ideas would entail moving from the research area to the business one, and knowledge transfer to the industry to implement the changes required against climate change. On this issue, Regina Llopis, president of Grupo AIA, reminded the slim participation of women in entrepreneurship.

Regina Llopis highlighted that only 7% of the capital risk in Europe goes to businesses created and managed by women and in Spain, only 8% of women are business angels, in other words, investors at the first stages of the business development.

These figures show the low participation of women in the business world and the also president of WA4STEAM has urged women to be involved in climate change combat through the creation of technological-based businesses. Areas such as artificial intelligence, Physics, Mathematics, or Engineering allow promoting a more sustainable world.
