The guest of the release leads the theoretical group of the laboratory of quantum processes and measurements, regularly participates in pop science podcasts and a show where in simple words talks about physics, new type of communication systems, data encryption and “quantum hacking“.

His name is Anton Kozubov… For our podcast, he parsed the topic quantum key distribution… More – talked about industry specifics and shared his views on alternative scientific theories in this area and issues of differentiation of fundamental and applied science.

The essence of the quantum key distribution is that for all Eve’s attacks, we can allocate such an amount of allocated bits that will be known only to Alice and only to Bob. Eve won’t know about him. This is the main goal of our work.

But it’s interesting for me to come up with such attacks so that Alice and Bob are confident in safety, and Eve would arrange everything in such a way as to bypass the defense.

Igor Lositskiy is the head of our youth laboratory and helps the children to get to the presentation of their own robotic projects at the largest Russian and international competitions in one or two years. During our conversation, we remembered prize-winning projects and figured out how to parents to choose robotic circles for children.

We strive for justified complexity and originality, so that our developments find a response in the human soul and evoke emotions. In addition to the technical component, the interest of the developers themselves is important to us.

Her name is Ekaterina Skorb, and today she is developing our center of infochemistry. We built an interview around him – we talked about practical relevance and design for the consumer, opportunities for newbies and plans for the future.

It is a “classic” episode in terms of duration for our podcast. However, the content may seem a little complicated. Consider this when choosing a place and time to listen.

The guest of this issue has developed platform for those involved in sports programming, and has assembled a large community. He shares his views on how this field is developing, talks about the role of ICPC “graduates”, comments on the device Codeforces and interest of companies to those who are familiar with sports programming.

Previously, competitions were one of the few social lifts: the day before yesterday you were still a schoolboy from a factory district of an incomprehensible city, and then you started to study and after a few years ended up in top companies to the best employers in the world.

Now the number of such lifts has increased – internships and hackathons have appeared, but the focus was somewhat blurred. But this is life, and it’s good that there are alternatives.
