Agencies, industry investing in quantum infrastructure
Advances in quantum algorithms, tools and platforms are being fueled by federal grants and private-sector investments.
*** The Department of Energy awarded $60.7 million in research funding across nine national laboratories, universities and non-profits to advance the development of quantum computing and networking.
Three projects were awarded $47 million to speed progress in quantum computing with research on the development of algorithms and software tools and techniques -- including programming languages, compilers and debugging approaches -- specifically designed for quantum computing.
Five other projects will address development of wide-area quantum networks, with the goal of greatly boosting the range of quantum-based communications. A full list of the funded projects can be found here. (...) Read More
