Intel in 2015 started investing in quantum research significantly and is presently making fast progress in the field. This week, the U.S. Senate is on course to review its National Quantum Initiative Act (S. 3143) for earning global leadership for the nation in the subject. Intel via its newsroom blog has announced its support to the government in this initiative, which may lead to a future partnership.
The act is a bipartisan bill that includes creating a 10-year coordinated federal program for accelerating research and development on quantum computing. This sits with endorsing the national economy and security for the United States of America.
The ambition behind passing the bill will take forward quantum information science via research and development. It will also improve interagency coordination, promote public-private partnerships, and encourage the progress of international standards.
When it comes to quantum computing research, we’re at mile one of a marathon. The U.S. has long been at the cutting edge of technology; a fact that has propelled our progress for decades. As nations around the world race to lead in quantum information science, the U.S. will require collaboration of industry, academia and the federal government to keep pace. The National Quantum Initiative Act is a great step forward, and Intel applauds the bipartisan leadership in Congress on their progress. – Intel’s director of quantum hardware
Quantum computers will find purpose in simulation and advancement of research in chemistry, material science, molecule modeling, and innovations in the world of physics. In the process, these computers are to surpass the abilities of the conventional computers in solving problems.
In the context, Intel quantum computing progressions include the introduction of Tangle Lake that’s a 49-qubit superconducting test chip. The tech giant is on the way to deliver more of such commercially viable quantum computing systems in the global markets.
On an inferring note, the Senate’s progress in this week comes after the progress of the U.S. House of Representatives regarding its version of the same bill that’s coded H.R. 6227. The legislation was unanimously approved in June by the U.S. House Science, Space, and Technology Committee.
Follow us to know if there’s a partnership between Intel and the American government emerging from the current discreet shadows.
