About Nicholas Harrington

I am a PhD candidate with the University of Sydney. My present dissertation compares the philosophical foundations of Thomas Hobbes and Niels Bohr, with the ultimate purpose of developing a concept of the political based upon Bohr’s theory of Complementarity. The research concerns epistemology; ideational development; the history, philosophy, and sociology of science; and, the rational development of political systems. When I'm not punching keyboard keys I play (a lot of) Magic the Gathering (any other owners of fine, luxury cardboard rectangles, please message me).

Quantum Surveillance

2021-05-06T03:58:04+10:00By |Computing, Politics, Quantum AI, Security|

If quantum surveillance, by leveraging quantum algorithms and unlimited access to metadata, could identify individuals in society who seek to do harm – and do so in a way that ensures the innocent were never abused and information was never compromised – is this something society should adopt?
