Blockchains (smart contracts, distributed ledgers) and rights management broadly construed are the themes of today's Spotlight Applications. Assigned to Accenture, the first application discloses techniques for quantum information interception prevention. Assigned to Rearden Ventures, the second application discloses techniques for smart prompts, AI-based digital representative, and multi-object steganographic encryption.

Methods, systems, and apparatus for transmitting qubits encoding quantum information with reduced risk of interception from an eavesdropper. In one aspect, a method includes encoding quantum information into an information qubit; encrypting the information qubit, comprising performing i) a parity operation on the information qubit and a parity control qubit and ii) a phase operation on the information qubit and a phase control qubit; performing, by a sender party, a sequence of one or more quantum logic gates on the phase control qubit; sending the information qubit, parity control qubit, and phase control qubit to a recipient party; and sending data identifying the sequence of one or more quantum logic gates to the recipient party, wherein the recipient party obtains the quantum information encoded into the information qubit using the information qubit, parity control qubit, phase control qubit, and data identifying the sequence of one or more quantum logic gates.

Systems and methods are described herein to enable the automated and/or user-guided creation, collection, and curating of digital content items that represent a user's experiences, personality, interactions, and legacy. A digital rights trustee may be assigned to control access to the content after the death of the user. A user may create a death file with content items to be handled in a specific (e.g., user-specified) manner after the death of the user. For example, the contents of the death file may be released to a family member or deleted by the system entirely. Content items may be secured or encrypted to allow access via the presentation of steganographically encoded objects. An AI-based digital representative may use a machine learning model to act on behalf of a user to create, share, and post content items to a website or social media platform.
