89th Tech Day – Industry 4.0

on 28-04-2017

... Industry 4.0 is the fourth industrial revolution. It focuses on the total digitization of physical assets and their integration into digital ecosystems with the various suppliers of the value chain.
Due to society digitalization, all companies are facing profound (digital) transformations which they have to convert into competitive advantages in order to become true digital companies. With their products enhanced by digital interfaces and services powered by data, companies will build digital ecosystems more powerfull, optimized and flexible.
The 89th TechDay@AlticeLabs, focused on Industry 4.0, will explain what really is industry 4.0 not only from R&D Institutes and Government their point of view but also from the industry players point of view highlighting 2 case studies to better illustrate what is being said. The event will also include a discussion pannel with all the attendees.

The event will be held on the next April 28th (14h00-17h00) in the Altice Labs Amphitheatre, in Aveiro. More Information..

We introduce the concept of degree of quantumness in quantum synchronization, a measure of the quantum natu re of synchronization in quantum systems. Following techniques from quantum information to quantify the quantumness of a dynamics, we propose a measure based on the number of non-commuting observables that synchronize. The degree of quantumness is compatible with already existing synchronization measurements, and it captures different physical properties. We illustrate the definition in a quantum system consisting of two weakly interacting cavity-qubit systems, which are coupled via the exchange of bosonic excitations between the cavities, and the synchronization of the expectation values of the Pauli operators is studied. We additionally propose a feasible superconducting circuit system in which the experiment can be carried out. Finally, we briefly discuss the degree of quantumness in the synchronization between two quantum van der Pol oscillators.
