Quantum Computers Pose Imminent Threat to Bitcoin Security /?id=2176:2017-quantum-computers /?id=2176:2017-quantum-computers Research by Assistant Professor Divesh Aggarwal and his colleagues have estimated that quantum computers might be able to break bitcoin's security as early as 2027. Bitcoin encrytion today is ensured by the difficulty of cracking its code using existing computers, but quantum computers will be able to work much faster because they are not constrained to working with bits (values that are either 0 or 1).

Local charity organisations use chatbots for social cause /?id=2165:2017-charities-chatbots /?id=2165:2017-charities-chatbots Provost's Chair Professor Ng Hwee Tou explains how chatbots operate on finding fixed keywords from a user's sentences and sends out answers based on these keywords. This hinders communication between chatbots and their users due to the limitation of chatbots to detect the nuances in human languages, and may leave users feeling disappointed with the communication.
