Quantum entanglement—where two particles belong to one state and thus act in concert even when separated over a vast distance—may yield unconditionally secure cryptographic systems, something not feasible today.
But will an entangled quantum state survive over the fiber-optic network?
Experiments being conducted at AT&T Research are starting to reveal answers, and helping scientists and engineers take the next steps toward harnessing quantum powers for real-world applications. Read more
Vlingo and AT&T are partnering on speech apps that let you tell your phone what you want. With AT&T WATSON providing speech recognition, Vlingo adds context information to make interacting with small devices easier, more natural.
In this interview, Vlingo’s CTO and co-founder Mike Phillips talks about how both partners benefit.
The FTC's "Do Not Track" mechanism proposal for the Internet requires understanding on how tracking data is collected and used.
AT&T Researcher Balachander Krishnamurthy and co-author Craig Wills showed in two separate papers in 2009 (go here and here) how aggregators gather tracking data on traditional Websites and how personal data is leaked via social network sites.
Her recent work in building statistics-based prediction models has resulted in a tool capable of predicting with 80% accuracy where bugs will occur in software systems with millions of lines of code.
For the paper's impressive results in discrete mathematics, the authors were awarded the Mathematical Association of America's David P. Robbins Prize.
Walter Willinger’s paper “Mathematics and the Internet: A Source of Enormous Confusion and Great Potential” was selected for inclusion in the book The Best Writing on Mathematics 2010 (Mircea Pitici, editor).
The main ideas from the paper are summarized in Network Science and the Internet: Lessons Learned.
Data from mobile devices is adding immeasurably to the statistics that surround us, providing new information that communities, companies, and people themselves can use to make better decisions.
Here statistician Chris Volinsky talks about the potential uses of this data and the best ways to visualize and interpret it.
Dressed for the RSA's PechaKucha talks, he easily reels off four rising security concerns.
Of four teams competing, AT&T's system most often provided bus riders with the information they sought. The team, led by Jason D. Williams, included Alistair Conkie, Iker Arizmendi, Danilo Giulianelli.
High school senior James Ting, a Davidson Institute scholarship winner and a subject of the TV program NJN Classroom Close Up, is working on innovative Internet routing methods at AT&T Research, where he is being mentored by Robert Doverspike and Dahai Xu.
