Tele Mental Health Assistance and Networking Across States (Tele-MANAS) initiative was launched on occasion of World Mental Health Day.
Tele-MANAS is an initiative of Union Ministry of Health & Family Welfare.
Experiments on the quantum entanglement (where several particles behave like a single unit even when they are separated), which received the Nobel Prize in Physics in 2022 has seen a major achievement by Indian scientists, who have found a simpler way to quantify the amount of entanglement in higher dimensional systems.
The study could help potentially enable better assessment of the efficacy of an entangled state for technological applications like quantum teleportation (a technique for transferring quantum information from a sender at one location to a receiver some distance away) where the success and accuracy of the process depends on the amount of entanglement as well as other quantum communication protocols.
Entangled state is a crucial state of quantum mechanics and can be used as a resource for quantum communication, quantum computation and information processing tasks that are impossible for classical systems.
Higher dimensional systems (dimension greater than two) are proven to have advantages in both quantum computing and quantum communications.
Thus, experimentally realising higher-dimensional entangled states along with the studies of quantification of the entanglement are of critical importance.
So far, all the relevant investigations towards quantifying entanglement mainly focused on providing bounds (maximum/minimum) on entanglement measures.
The existing method of characterising quantum state is Quantum State Tomography (QST), which can then be used to quantify entanglement.
It requires determination of an increasingly large number of parameters as the dimension of the system grows.
A method for empirical estimation of entanglement for any arbitrary dimensional entangled state was not available.
Betiyan Bane Kushal
Ministry of Women and Child Development (MWCD) to organize National Conference on Skilling in Non- Traditional Livelihood for Girls “Betiyan Bane Kushal” under the banner of Beti Bachao Beti Padhao on the occasion of the International Day of the Girl Child.
Conference emphasizes skilling, new age skills and non-traditional livelihood for girls.
Other key highlights of the event include:
Launch of the BBBP operational manual which lays out operational guidelines and avenues for convergence.
Announcement of commitments with MoSDE and MoMA on 21st-century skills focusing on life and employability skills, entrepreneurship skills, digital literacy and financial literacy skills.
Best practices on skilling from the ground, showcased by selected districts
Case studies on sustainable inclusion of girls and women in NTL, with examples from industry, NGOs and CSOs.
