Short-Range Entanglement is an Automatons-specific technology on the Exploration and Expansion technology tree with a research cost of 1800 . It unlocks one Empire Improvement, requires research in Adaptive Colonies, and allows no further research.
"This major development in galactic technology was the result of a lab accident involving Automatons nicknamed Alice and Bob, a bell, and a few qubits in strongly nonclassical superposition states."
"In order to maximize their efficiency, the Automatons have harnessed a limited level of teleportation to improve industrial and logistics processes. As the resulting growth in efficiency does not require additional exploration or travel, it is received very positively."
