Experimental Evidence of Quantum Randomness Incomputability

http://arxiv.org/abs/1004.1521 In contrast with software-generated randomness (called pseudo-randomness), quantum randomness is provable incomputable, i.e. it is not exactly reproducible by any algorithm. We provide evidence of incomputability – an asymptotic property – of quantum randomness by performing finite tests of … Continue reading
