Strategic policy informed with quantum information science and technologies is beginning to gain notice. Recent studies by D.C. think-tanks are identifying challenges to quantum initiatives. The Hudson Institute, a Washington D.C. think-tank, promotes strategic policy and national security. Through the Quantum Alliance Initiative, the Hudson Institute has identified these critical issues:

(1) Government’s role and composition of public-private partnerships;
(2) Allocation of federal funds;
(3) Workforce education and training;
(4) Speed of research-to-commerce;
(5) Developing quantum cybersecurity standards;
(6) Quantum cybersecurity and intellectual property inter-relatedness;
(7) Balancing classified and unclassified research
(8) Application of quantum computing with emerging technologies to include AI, 5G, blockchain, autonomous systems…

And the list is sure to grow.
