Smart city changes with Quantum Computing
How Quantum Computing changes our Smart Cities? Over the last few decades, urban ecosystems have undergone a much greater change than in previous centuries. Today smart systems help monitor, regulate and plan how cities are evolving better than ever before. In order to manage the city in a better way, we must first understand it: collect and analyse a wide range of data. This has been done for centuries, from tax payers data, voter reports, to police summaries, etc. However, obtaining such data often takes time and decisions based on it can be delayed. But 10 years ago, the situation began to change rapidly. Read the story with the help of translation programs.
Jonas Kubilius, a scientist working in the field of artificial intelligence: “As a child, I thought that when people grow up they all become professors”
If you google Jonas Kubilius, you will find more than one scientist named Jonas with various outstanding academic and professional achievements. “Since childhood, it was clear to me that I will be a professor – could it be otherwise, when your grandfather is the rector and professor of Vilnius University, dad and mom also have academic degrees. I lived in the environment related to science - mathematics, physics, chemistry and others”, - laughed Jonas Kubilius, one of the founders of Inc. Three Thirds, operating in the field of research and application of artificial intelligence. Having already started preparing for a career as a researcher at school, he says he is finally doing what makes sense and gives professional satisfaction: combining science and business.
Rigonda Skorulskienė: falling in love with Physics
“Physics is all about life, it’s everything that happens around you and even in you. Falling in love with physics is not very common, because either you have a habit of watching the world and asking questions or you don’t. It’s like a ballet, the earlier you start, the easier it gets later. With an inspiring help, witch I had as a child, anyone can fall in love with physics”, - says Rigonda Skorulskienė, a teacher at Kaunas Jesuit Gymnasium and a Member of Ipho2021 management.

Lithuanian Flyers in Outer Space
More than 62 years ago, Sputnik 1, the first artificial Earth satellite, zoomed across the sky. It was this device that spurred forward the famous Space Race, in which heavyweight Cold War rivals, the USSR and the United States, jostled for the win. From then on, space seemed to be only the big country playground. However, look at the sky now. It is likely that the objects flying there will paint your heart with the three proud colours: since 2014, Lithuania has also set foot in space.
