[image source=”×350.jpg” align=”right” class=””]Experimental progress on quantum entanglement moved at a tremendous rate during 2015, proving beyond a doubt the effect that Einstein dubbed “spooky action at a distance.” The next step is engineering this effect into quantum networks, and ultimately a Quantum Internet. Quantum networks will improve the security of classical communications, allow a quantum client to request that a quantum server compute a function without disclosing anything to the server, and improve the sensitivity of scientific instruments. I will give an overview of recent experimental results, applications of quantum networks, and the daunting challenge of creating a true quantum Internet.
Rodney Van Meter received a B.S. in engineering and applied science from the California Institute of Technology in 1986, an M.S. in computer engineering from the University of Southern California in 1991, and a Ph.D. in computer science from Keio University in 2006. His current research centers on quantum computer architecture and quantum networking. Other research interests include storage systems, networking, and post-Moore’s Law computer architecture. He is now an Associate Professor of Environment and Information Studies at Keio University’s Shonan Fujisawa Campus. Dr. Van Meter is a member of AAAS, ACM and IEEE.

Biomedical Engineering is truly a multidisciplinary field in which synergic collaborations among engineers, scientists, medical personnel as well as other professionals are required. Although Biomedical Engineering has been emerging for more than 60 years in the developed countries, only recently that it is becoming more and more popular in many developing countries.

This presentation describes significant advances in Biomedical Engineering which promote a better life for the community. Some examples of Biomedical Engineering significant advances in developed countries are then reviewed. They include, for examples: asynchronous, synchronous, and hybrid teledermatology; transdermal drug delivery systems; mobile-health drug delivery systems; m-health and u-health systems for specific healthcare applications.

Due to the relatively fast developments in ICT and activities of engineering societies, such as the IEEE EMBS, in developing countries there have been a number of significant new developments in various areas of Biomedical Engineering. These application examples include: simple hybrid telemedicine systems, mobile telemedicine system with multi-communication links, simple template system for antibiotic-loaded beads, hybrid telemedicine system for remote cataract patients screening, and microcontroller-based continuous passive motion machine. Moreover, simple e-health, mobile health and telemedicine system prototypes for different applications have also been developed and tested by various groups.

In conclusion, both in developed and developing countries there are currently more and more significant developments in various areas of Biomedical Engineering for promoting the quality of life.
