Today members of Phaeton team were invited to visit the Pawsey Supercomputing Research Centre. This is home to the most powerful research supercomputer in the Southern Hemisphere, helping solve intractable problems at scale.
Pawsey’s house a Hewlett Packard (HPE) Cray EX supercomputer, in the advanced research facility in Perth, Western Australia. The work conducted at Pawsey enables scientist to accelerate discoveries, helping communities address tomorrow’s challenges with answers today.
The urgent problems of the 21st century demand analysis and action sooner than can be achieved by traditional computing. This is where Hewlett Packard’s (HPE) Cray EX supercomputer provides that speed.
Pawsey is also playing a key role in the Australian Space Data Analysis Facility, providing access to businesses to space data and tools, training and capacity building, and analytical expertise to stimulate innovation.
WEB3 data-driven decisions in science and technology
The hidden truth that Data is the new oil
The foundation of good decision making is high-quality data, and as we move further into the digital age of Web3, the future of science will become data-driven and Phaeton intends to assist the movement with protecting data through Phaetons DTL blockchain technology. Whilst also learning how Quantum algorithms acts as a preventive measure against cyber security attacks.
Some of the key advantages is that scientists have the ability to do experiments on a computer first, saving time and money instead of scientific experiments in the laboratory.
We understand that large volumes of data can educate and train a machine learning algorithm to automate a manual process, enabling business organization to spend more time on more important tasks. Collecting, analysing and storing data plays a crucial role against cyber security attacks as well as solving some of Australia’s greatest challenges in the digital revolution. Phaetons Blockchain which is a decentralise ledger technology has the potential to accelerate the research and development for data to have complete immunity.
Quantum is one of our most promising growth opportunities
Whilst we are all trying to understand and address cybersecurity ethical and technical risks in emerging quantum technologies. The Challenge that we face is that Quantum computing has been hailed as the new frontier in computing information, whether that this will be achieved over the next 5–10 years is something all technology companies are eyeing.
Quantum computing diverges from conventional computing primarily in the way that it stores information in ‘qubits’ rather than binary ‘bits’. In a simple analogy, it allows quantum computers to process information at a much faster rate than classic computers making it an interesting case to transmit data more efficiently. The Pawsey Research Centre and Quantum Brilliance specialises in this area of scientific technology which is a huge land make for Australian Technology.
Whilst around the world there are huge demands from technology companies, governments, and private sectors in exploring these new technology advancements. Phaeton intends to become an integral solution for the technology sector in Australia and internationally to support a multi scale decentralise ledger technology solution for business use case applications.
Whether Quantum is market ready or not, researchers working in cyber security and responsible innovation sectors such as Phaeton are actively exploring the challenges of tomorrow’s quantum technologies that may pose to current security systems.
To get a better understanding today’s cloud networking cybersecurity system for sending and storing data rely on encryption (or cryptography). Cryptography is a foundational tool that enables many modern digital services to use as a form to encrypt data. Many software systems use public-key cryptosystems, which are based on complex computational problems in mathematics. Some encryption algorithms could be vulnerable to attack by quantum computers once the technology is more advanced. The time it takes to break an algorithm using quantum computer is significantly reduced making information and data easily available.
These encrypted algorithms help render data unintelligible if breached and create safe spaces in which to conduct online activities. However sensitive personal information can be captured via adversarial eavesdropping and could be retained later to decrypting Cryptography by powerful quantum computers in the future. A world driven by quantum computing raises urgent questions about how we use cryptography today, and the implications quantum technology imposes on the future security and privacy of our data in at the upmost importance topic with Phaeton and its technology partners.
Phaeton Intends to continually explore advance post quantum cryptographic techniques, it may be some time before cryptographic algorithms can be replaced with ethical quantum-safe solutions or Quantum key signatures however exploring opportunities with Phaetons Blockchain (DLT) decentralise ledger technology and (QKS) Quantum key signatures is something that is of interests with all of our partners.
