    This looks very interesting....block chain, crypto-currencies and associated infrastructure.
    it's a new technology which can completely change the financial landscape. And it seems Russia is ahead in it

    US calls for international regulation of Crypto-currency

    Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil country that prints green toilet paper without any limits wants to regulate others' hurricanes. Oh yes for prosperity and democracy right?



    By coincidence the new president incumbent Vladimir Putin

    MOSCOW, October 24. / TASS /. Before July 1, 2018, Russian President Vladimir Putin instructed the government, together with the Central Bank, in the implementation of the Digital Economy program, to ensure that changes to the legislation of the Russian Federation on regulating the public attraction of crypto-currencies and cash by placing tokens (ICOs) by analogy with the regulation of the primary offering of securities . The corresponding instruction was published on the official website of the Kremlin.
    The president also instructed to determine the status of digital technologies and corresponding concepts (in particular, "token", "crypto-currency", "smart contract", "digital mortgage") applied in the financial sphere, based on the obligation of the ruble as the only legal tender in the country.
    The head of state instructed the Central Bank and the government of the Russian Federation to establish requirements for the organization and implementation of production based on the principles of cryptography in the medium of distributed registries ("mining"), including the registration of economic entities carrying out such activities, and determining the procedure for its taxation.
    According to the text of the instruction, the President is waiting for proposals till December 20 on the creation of a special regulatory platform ("sandbox") on the basis of the Central Bank for approbation of innovative financial technologies, products and services, before establishing rules for regulating relations related to their application in the financial market.

    You do realize that the total number of usable computer clusters in Russia is much higher than in Poland, don't you?

    It would be rather idiotic if Russia had only three usable machines. I use such systems on a daily basis and one has to compete for
    resources with dozens and hundreds of other users and jobs sit in a queue for half the time. I would rather have a dedicated cluster all to
    myself (or my immediate colleagues) than the kitchen sink paradigm followed by these TOP 500 systems. Total Petaflops counts for much
    less in the real world since no user actually gets to see this total.

    Of course. Russia should still rank higher, though. Realistically, I think they should have atleast 20 computers in top 500. 30-40 would be great.

    (Also guys, don't shoot the messenger.)

    But yeah, that's a good point and exactly what I was thinking after posting that comment yesterday. Russia must have a lot of "supercomputers", many times more than Poland for sure, atleast a similar number per capita, they just don't make the list. That is probably the case with countries like South Korea, Spain, Brazil and India as well.

    South Korea in particular usually does were well in these kind of comparisons (patents, industrial robots, R&D spending...), but it somehow has only 5 computers on the list, which is really odd. Poland is the opposite, it usually doesn't rank particularly well, while of course being the number 2 in eastern Europe after Russia, but somehow it has as many supercomputers in top 500 as South Korea. That doesn't mean that Poland's overall technological capabilities are comparable to Korea, far from it. I wonder where Russia (and India) will be in 10 years time. I'd imagine and hope that they will improve quite a bit. India of course, considering its massive size, but Russia as well.

    And China is good news. The rise has been absolutely insane. They were nowhere to been seen in top 500 only 10-15 years ago. They finally overtook the US last year (IIRC) and now they are already the clear number 1. How is that "New American Century" going, Murica? I cri evrytiem. attack

    Sberbank in 2018 will lend to individuals on the basis of artificial intelligence's decisions



    MOSCOW, November 11th. / TASS /. The absolute majority of loans to individuals in Sberbank in 2018 will be issued on the basis of artificial intelligence (AI) decisions, Sberbank senior vice president Alexander Vedyakhin told reporters on the sidelines of the international competitions in machine learning, data analysis and AI Sberbank Data Science Journey.
    "The next year the absolute majority of loans for individuals will be made on the basis of artificial intelligence solutions, but now we are doing it a little less," Vedyakhin said.


    At the same time, Vedyakhin explained that, AB tests are constantly being conducted, in which people will make the same decisions to assess the quality of the machine.
    "For example, everything went into the figure and the machine began to make the wrong decisions, but we will be able to understand what decisions it takes in credit risk in two or three years." It will be too late, therefore, there will always be people who will lead a narrow parallel stream of similar applications " , - said Vedyakhin.
    Answering a question about what percentage of decisions on loans to individuals should be assigned to artificial intelligence, the bank's senior vice-president noted that such a balance has not yet been determined, but "he is moving towards artificial intelligence."
    Loans for large customers
    AI technology can also begin to be used massively by large banks to lend to medium and large enterprises over the next three years, Vedyakhin also said. He noted that Sberbank is pleased with the results of how AI is used in lending to individuals and when dealing with small businesses. He explained that the level of delinquency for such loans is lower than if decisions on them were taken by a person.
    "Now we are thinking of moving further upwards and, I think, in the next three years we will see further that artificial intelligence decides on fairly large deals for large and medium-sized businesses," Vedyakhin said.
    At the same time, Sberbank does not want to increase the number of credit decisions taken with the help of AI to 100%. "Such a task is dangerous: you always have to do testing, a person should evaluate the quality of decisions the machine takes in terms of credit risks." If in two years it turns out that the machine has made the wrong decision, who should be dismissed? " - Says the vice-president of Sberbank.
    Answering the TASS question about how the bank plans to use AI technology when working with VIP clients, Vedyakhin said that they still will have a high share of personal communication with managers, but some services will also be digitized. "VIP clients also have a need for everyday services, the same utilities, payment for children's clubs, but he does not go with payments himself - this is his assistant." This story will definitely go down to the figure, his assistants will communicate with the chat -baths, "remarked Vediakhin.
    AI on the exchange
    Communication with a person will be exactly preserved where investment decisions will be discussed, but even here there will be room for AI: according to the vice-president of Sberbank, already today he shows very good results in algorithmic trading in financial instruments, and Sberbank intends to use it for drafting of client proposals.
    The first deputy chairman of the Central Bank, Ksenia Yudaeva, warned earlier in October about the possibility of "bubbles" arising as a result of the massive use of algorithms in exchange trades. According to Vedyakhin, this problem is solved.
    "This issue is complex, containing many challenges for all regulators in the world." There are no integrated solutions, and we very much hope that our regulator will be one of the first in the world to make such quality regulation, "he stressed.

    Cryptocurrency is only one of blockchain applications. I am no banker but seems that this is no dollar either, no need for SWIFT , clearing systems... no US domination so definitely positives. Easier tracking of transactions, lending.

    But there sre possibilities in legal sphere too (privacy, contracts, notary)

    Yes there's a danger of that. From what I gather, the Russian version won't be a completely wild and independent operation.

    Check my post 691 in this thread. Russia is already about to test blockchain technology not only as cryptocurrency but for legal/financial instruments. Putin required govt/CBR to prepare legal framework for block-chain usage till March 2018



    BTW  some quotes after wiki for you guys:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blockchain




    Land Registration

    In the first half of 2018, an experiment will be conducted on the use of blocking technology to monitor the reliability of the Unified State Real Estate Register (USRER) data in the territory of Moscow.[80]

    Smart contracts

    Blockchain-based smart contracts are contracts that can be partially or fully executed or enforced without human interaction.[83] One of the main objectives of a smart contract is automated escrow. The IMF believes blockchains could reduce moral hazards and optimize the use of contracts in general.[84] Due to the lack of widespread use their legal status is unclear.[84]
    Some blockchain implementations could enable the coding of contracts that will execute when specified conditions are met. A blockchain smart contract would be enabled by extensible programming instructions that define and execute an agreement.[85] For example, Ethereum Solidity is an open source blockchain project that was built specifically to realize this possibility by implementing a Turing-complete programming language capability to implement such contracts.[23]:ch. 11
    Another example of smart contract utilization is in the music industry. In 2017, DJ Deadly Buda released the first DJ mix, "Rock the Blockchain" that pays the tracks and their artists contained within it via a cryptocurrency blockchain, Musicoin. Every time the dj mix is played, the smart contracts attached to the dj mix pays the artists almost instantly.[86]
    An application has been suggested for securing the spectrum sharing for wireless network


    Other uses
    Blockchain technology can be used to create a permanent, public, transparent ledger system for compiling data on sales, storing rights data by authenticating copyright registration,[102] and tracking digital use and payments to content creators, such as musicians.[103] In 2017, IBM partnered with ASCAP and PRS for Music to adopt blockchain technology in music distribution.[104] Imogen Heap's Mycelia[105] service, which allows managers to use a blockchain for tracking high-value parts moving through a supply chain, was launched as a concept in July 2016. Everledger is one of the inaugural clients of IBM's blockchain-based tracking service.[106]

    "Almaz-Antey" completes the creation for the Ministry of Defense and the Ministry of Emergencies completely domestic PC
    The use of only Russian components will exclude any possible impact on the operation of the computer, said the general director of the holding Jan Novikov
    MOSCOW, January 31. / TASS /. The Institute of the Almaz-Antei Concern completes the creation of a fully domestic personal computer (PC). This was reported on Wednesday in the press service of the company.

    "All-Russian Scientific Research Institute of Radio Equipment" (part of the concern) is completing work on the creation of a domestic personal computer, developed on the element base of Russian production. In the product, only the domestic component base is used - from the case to the microcircuits, "said Jan Novikov, General Director of Almaz-Antey, whose words are quoted in the press service.

    He stressed that the use of only Russian components "completely excludes any theoretically possible extraneous influence on the operation of the computer."

    According to Novikov, the holding expects interest in the new development by the Ministry of Defense and the Ministry of Emergencies of Russia. In future, a separate production line can be opened for production of this PC.

    Specialists of the Urals and the Kuzbass created mini-factories producing cheap synthetic oil from coal

    The developers successfully tested a unique technology for the direct liquefaction of coal for production of synthetic hydrocarbon mixture — equivalent of oil. Moreover, the cost of the resulting fuel is much cheaper "natural". Use mini-mills are almost endless — from agriculture to utilities.

    As the developers managed to create the current technology of coal liquefaction is suitable for mass implementation in the first place for small and medium business, as its implementation does not require significant costs and pays for itself quickly.

    The first plant for the production of synthetic liquid boiler fuels from coal technology electroepilation processing of coal-water mixtures already manufactured and shipped to customers — a glass factory in Nampo (DPRK). Its capacity for end product 15 tons per day. Parallel to the already developed feasibility study on equipment for mini-production plant from coal to diesel fuel capacity of 100 tons per day for own technological needs of coal mining sites OOO "Promagroservice" (Novokuznetsk). Work began on the development of the project for auxiliary heating, power supply and ensure fuel of agro-Altai region.

    Work on the implementation of the development carried out in cooperation:

    — NP "South-Ural technical society" (Miass, Chelyabinsk region) is responsible for developing technical documentation, management of contractual relations, the organization of manufacture and supply of components.

    — LLC "Kvant" (Novokuznetsk, the Kemerovo region) is the development of technology, production of electric-discharge installation, Assembly and factory testing of the kit, testing and commissioning.

    — "NPO SPb EHK" (Saint-Petersburg) — is a technology partner, responsible for the promotion, duplication of development and active implementation at industrial enterprises of the country abroad.

    It should be noted that the actual production of liquid fuel from coal in General is not a new thing. In different countries now employs more than 80 pilot plant of coal liquefaction. However, in industrial scale, these technologies are currently not used due to a number of reasons.

    The main disadvantages of existing technologies for the liquefaction of coal due to low productivity of the process occurring at high pressures and temperatures, in the presence of catalysts, the need for production of hydrogen and oxygen, separation of the catalyst for reuse in the process, — says Igor Yakupov, Deputy Director of "South-Ural technical society" Miass, Chelyabinsk region. — Scale cost-effective production in this area begins from approximately half a million tons of liquid products per year, ie of the order of several million tons per year by source coal.

    In this case, you need a huge investment, the need of which starts from the level of about one billion U.S. dollars with a payback period of 7-8 years and above. Clearly, such projects are long-term investment of world class players.That is why no country yet has not built a single commercial production of synthetic liquid fuel from coal. In this case, the appeal formula "gasoline from coal" does not leave in peace many producers. Therefore requests the development of technology to the experts for deep processing of coal delivered consistently. The economic feasibility of producing liquid fuels from coal is determined that sufficient reserves of coal in our country and commercial efficiency comparable to oil refining.

    The main difference of the project from the existing methods of processing of coal consists in a significant reduction in unit costs, the cost of the equipment due to the exclusion of the processes occurring at high temperatures and pressures, exclusion of catalytic reactions. Technology is much cheaper and easier. There is no need to build entire factories with huge production cycle, to bear huge costs.

    — Our equipment is quite compact, it allow cheap brown coal by treatment with two-phase coal-water environment with addition of heavy oil residue (TNO) in the cavitation field created by a pulsed high-voltage discharges. to process an analogue of oil, and to select analogs of gasoline, diesel fuel and fuel oil. Moreover, the cost of synthetic fuel, according to our calculations, will be three times less than obtained in the usual way, — said Igor Yakupov.

    Raw material for the production is: coal — 50%; heavy residues of oil refining (TNO) — 23%, water 27%.For processing is supplied crushed coal — coal dust — to install mixing it is mixed with water and heavy oil residue (TNO), the mixture is processed in a homogenizer type rotor — cavitation-hydraulic disperser (Caged). After that, a homogeneous colloidal suspension is pumped to the installation elektrogidroudarnoy pulse processing, with the voltage on bit cell up to 60,000 V.

    The output is neftebazovskiy product with a density of 0.95-0.96 g/cm3. To receive commercial oil from nefteyuganskogo product separated water and coal residue. Selected hydrocarbon fraction SUN density 0,825 g/cm3 is dispersed in the commodity group with their alternate selection.

    Today, after manufacturing of experimental-industrial model installation capacity of coal processing of 15 tonnes per day, the developers embarked on the design and manufacture of plant for deep processing of coal capacity up to 50 tons per day. It poluavtomatizirovannuju processing line modular design, consistently performing grinding supplied from the coal storage of raw materials, mixing the crushed coal with water-fuel emulsion with obtaining a stable water-in-coal-fuel oil compositions directed to treatment in a flow reactor to produce liquid hydrocarbon fuel composition (equivalent to oil) and processing into marketable synthetic liquid fuels.

    The developers explain that a particularly high impact of such installations is obtained at low production volumes. Low-cost mobile unit is quite applicable even in the far North, where the fuel has to carry thousands of miles away. It can be supplied close to where coal mining and on the spot to produce diesel fuel and gasoline. Such installations may use for disposal of coal sludge dumps in there environment, and production. In General, the possibility of using such mini-plants are almost endless — they include agriculture, small power, utilities.

    That is a very impressive technological solution. But according to NATO blowhards, Russia does not make anything.

    To put this in context, this is the first cheap Fischer-Tropsch replacement developed until now.

    Russian startup Zeus helped to launch Venezuela's crypto currency

    MOSCOW, Feb. 27 (RIA Novosti). Russian start-up Zeus helped to release the national currency of Venezuela, the company's investor, the president of the group of companies "Osnova" Alexander Ruchyev, told journalists.


    Venezuela on February 20 released its petroleum-backed crypto currency Petro. At the same time, President Nicolas Maduro said that the volume of pre-sales of petro reached 735 million dollars. Thus, Venezuela became the first country with its own crypto currency, which is supported by oil reserves. Maduro later said that foreign investors' interest in transactions with petro had already exceeded $ 1 billion. Interest in the new crypto currency showed such countries as Colombia, Brazil, Japan, China, Spain.
    Later, Maduro announced the release of another crypto currency - gold petro, which will be provided with this precious metal. According to Maduro, this will happen this week.

    "One of our start-ups Zeus helped them (Venezuela - ed.) Issue a national crypto currency." The release of the crypto currency means the creation of a stock exchange, an ecosystem. "He helped create this ecosystem," Ruchiev said.

    "He (the startup ed.) Went through the Smart Valley platform, we invested in it, and he is now actively developing in the world space," added Ruchiev.
    The startup project Zeus is an online exchange, through which it will be possible to buy and sell shares of the world's largest companies for crypto currency. Zeus is connected to classic American exchanges under a contract with a brokerage company. The project was selected on the Smart Valley platform and received investment for development from GK "Osnova". Basa itself, in the person of Alexander Ruchiev, owns a minority stake in Zeus.

    Energomash has successfully tested a 3D printed variant of RD-0124 rocket engine.

    3D printing vastly reduces the number of parts and welding joints. For example, the mixing chamber previously
    consisted of 220 parts and 124 welding joints and 62 welding seams. The 3D printed version consists of one
    part that is produced (grown) in 77 hours.

    Looks to me like Russia is the clear world leader in 3D printing technology. Printing rocket engines is not the same
    as printing some plastic parts for toys.

    Developers in Ufa have developed a gasoline powered drone that can stay up for 5 hours and carry 30 kg of equipment. This is not
    all that unique but they beat the Chinese on price (without sweatshops).

    This is why NATO is going insane with hysteria. Russia can out-compete them on every front.

    Physicists from MIPT found material for high-speed quantum Internet

    Physicists from MIPT found "forgotten" material, which can become the basis for high-speed quantum Internet. In an  article published in the leading journal on quantum technologies Nature Partner Journal Quantum Information, it is shown how to increase to more than 1 Gb / s the speed of information transfer over a channel completely protected by the laws of physics, and make the quantum Internet as fast as the classical one.

    The whole world is racing to create quantum computers. It has long been involved in industrial giants Google, IBM, Microsoft and the leading international research centers and universities. It is not known yet when such devices will appear, but the world is preparing for their appearance. The fact is that a quantum computer can cause a revolution in the field of information security. Confidentiality of transmitted information (personal correspondence, banking information, etc.), is provided today with encryption algorithms, for breaking into which a classical supercomputer will take years. It is expected that a quantum computer can do this in a fraction of a second.

    Fortunately, an "antidote" has already been proposed that allows 100% protection of transmitted information from quantum computers and, in general, of all kinds of attacks. We are talking about quantum cryptography, the stability of which is ensured not by the complexity of deciphering, but by the laws of quantum physics. Its principle is based on the inability to create a copy of an unknown quantum state without changing the original. Therefore, the line of quantum communication can not be listened to unnoticed by the sender and the recipient. A quantum computer here does not help attackers - even if they intercept transmitted data, this is immediately known, and stealthily stealing information will not come out.

    Transmit information best with the help of quanta of light - photons, - carrying quantum bits. It is extremely important to use single photons, otherwise the attacker will be able to intercept additional photons and receive a copy of the message. The principle of generating single photons is quite simple. An excited quantum system can go over to the ground state with the emission of exactly one quantum of light. It remains only to find a quantum system suitable for practical use. This is the whole complexity. For example, quantum dots work well only at very low temperatures (of the order of -200 ° C), and ultramodern two-dimensional materials, such as graphene, simply can not often emit photons under electric excitation.

    The solution of the researchers from MIPT consists in using the material already forgotten in optoelectronics - silicon carbide. "In 2014, we almost accidentally drew attention to silicon carbide and immediately appreciated its potential,  " says Dmitry Fedyanin , senior research fellow at the Laboratory of Nanooptics and Plasmonics. However, according to him, for the first time one-photon electroluminescence in this semiconductor was obtained in 2015 by a group of scientists from Australia.

    Strangely enough, it was silicon carbide that started the modern optoelectronics: it was the first to observe electroluminescence (glow when electric current was passed), in the 1920s the first light-emitting diodes were demonstrated on its basis, and in the 1970s, They were produced in the USSR on an industrial scale. However, in the 1980s, silicon carbide was completely displaced from optoelectronics by direct-gap semiconductors and was almost forgotten, so today it is better known as a very hard and heat-resistant material from which electrical components, bulletproof vests and brake pads of Porsche, Lamborghini and Ferrari supercars are manufactured.

    Dmitry Fedyanin and colleagues from the laboratory of nanooptics and plasmonicsThe center of photonics and two-dimensional materials of MIPT in their work investigated the physics of single-photon electroluminescence of color centers in silicon carbide and developed a theory that explains and accurately reproduces experimental results. Color centers are point defects of the crystal lattice, which have an optical transition in the spectral region where the defect-free crystal is transparent. They play a key role in single-photon electroluminescence. Using the developed theory, the researchers showed how to improve the carbide-silicon single-photon LED to increase the photon emission rate to several billion per second. This is what is required for the implementation of protocols of quantum cryptography at a speed of about 1 Gbit / s. Two other authors of the study, Igor Khramtsov and Andrei Vishnevy, pay attention to the fact that, most likely, in the future there will be other materials that will approach silicon carbide in terms of the brightness of single-photon radiation, but unlike silicon carbide, devices from them can not be manufactured industrially in the same technological process as most modern microcircuits. Thanks to compatibility withCMOS process, single-photon sources based on silicon carbide are practically unattainable for competing materials and can solve the problem of low-capacity quantum communication lines.


    The study was supported by a grant from the Russian Science Foundation No. 17-79-20421.
