Israel’s Prime Minister’s Office is purportedly setting aside $80M (U.S.) for quantum computing research and development. The Israeli’s intend to join the elite group of nations capable of producing quantum computing systems. The preponderance of funding is ear-marked for the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology. It is hoped the investment for developing Israel’s quantum systems will be on par with Israeli investment in cyberspace. Several of the world leaders in quantum technology – Microsoft, Intel, and IBM – are teaming with Israel’s centers of technology to assist the research.
