White House, NSF Launch Partnership to Boost K-12 Access to Quantum Education

A new initiative unveiled by the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy and National Science Foundation Wednesday intends to spur students' interest in quantum information science as early as grade school and broaden access to QIS studies throughout K-12 education.



Sustainable Chemistry at The Quantum Level: Sustainable Potential of Computational Quantum Chemistry

Scientists are now using new quantum chemistry computing procedures to categorize hypothetical electrocatalysts that are 'too slow' or 'too expensive', far more thoroughly and quickly than was considered possible a few years ago.



US Army Helps Develop Hybrid Quantum Computing With New Research

The world is another step closer to living with quantum computers, as U.S. Army researchers worked alongside University of Maryland scientists to build the precursor to a hybrid quantum computing system.



Quantum Leap Challenge: UC Berkeley to Lead $25 Million Quantum Computing Center

As part of the federal government's effort to speed the development of quantum computers, the National Science Foundation (NSF) has awarded the University of California, Berkeley, $25 million over five years to establish a multi-university institute focused on advancing quantum science and engineering and training a future workforce to build and use quantum computers.



Rigetti Raises $79m Series C For Its Quantum Computing Platform

Rigetti Computing, the quantum computing startup that is challenging industry heavyweights like IBM, Microsoft and D-Wave, today announced that it has closed a $79 million Series C funding round.



Is Quantum Computing Ready For Prime Time?

Quantum computing was named a breakout technology in 2017 by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. It showed up again on the list for 2020. Does that mean quantum computing is ready for prime time? Possibly. That is good news for the world, but the problem is few know what a quantum computer actually does—and investors don't know what quantum computing means for their portfolio.



Calculating The Benefits of Exascale And Quantum Computers

A quintillion calculations a second. That's one with 18 zeros after it. It's the speed at which an exascale supercomputer will process information. The Department of Energy (DOE) is preparing for the first exascale computer to be deployed in 2021. Two more will follow soon after. Yet quantum computers may be able to complete more complex calculations even faster than these up-and-coming exascale computers. But these technologies complement each other much more than they compete.



The Quest For Quantum-Proof Encryption Just Made a Leap Forward

Quantum computers could make encryption a thing of the past, but 15 contenders are trying to prove they have what it takes to safeguard your data.
