National University of Singapore to Partner with Industry to Support Quantum Computing
SGInnovate to partner NUS centre to promote quantum technology in Singapore
Excerpts and salient points ~
+ SGInnovate is partnering a unit at the National University of Singapore (NUS) to promote quantum technology… The initiative will involve supporting researchers in the field and helping them take their quantum-based innovations to market, including assistance in fund-raising.
+ Quantum applications can be seen in clocks that can keep precise time using the specific frequencies of individual atoms, technology that is essential to global positioning systems (GPS), for instance.
Its new partnership with the Centre for Quantum Technologies at NUS will last for two years, as outlined in a memorandum of intent signed on Friday (June 7).
+ SGInnovate recently invested in three quantum technology start-ups. One uses a form of quantum technology to build systems for navigation and exploration. The technology enables the systems to work reliably and accurately everywhere, including underwater or underground.
