The rate at which quantum computing is hitting the media stream is ever-increasing. This piece is a collection of recent articles and reports covering various aspects of quantum computing from the lens of government and policy. Mea Cubitt

Government Must Reform the ITC to Keep Pace with Innovation and Curb Trolls | In 2001, six years before the iPhone appeared, a futurist named Ray Kurzweil wrote that humankind would cram 20,000 years of technological progress into the century that had just begun. There were skeptics, but today any of the world’s six billion smartphone subscribers can read his essay on their devices practically any time, any place they choose.  Source: I P WATCH DOG.   Government Must Reform the ITC to Keep Pace with Innovation and Curb Trolls…

C-QuEST: New quantum research centre opens at University College Dublin | A new research centre harnessing the potential of quantum science has opened its doors at University College Dublin. The Centre for Quantum Engineering, Science & Technology (C-QuEST) aims to accelerate the development of quantum research in Ireland, and use the technology to address major global challenges. According to Dr Andrew Mitchell, UCD School of Physics and C-QuEST Director, the launch highlights the ever-increasing importance of emerging technologies when it comes to the Irish research and innovation landscape.  Source: University College Dublin.   C-QuEST: New quantum research centre opens at University College Dublin…

Critical Update: How Federal Agencies Can Help Avert Quantum Catastrophe | Bell bottoms, vinyl records, not an iPhone in sight. The prospect of a computer that can operate at speeds fast enough to decode the complicated mathematical riddles guarding our communications holds the potential to send society back to a time before sensitive data went zipping nonchalantly across digital networks.   Source: Nextgov.   Critical Update: How Federal Agencies Can Help Avert Quantum Catastrophe…

U.S. National Security May Soon Depend on Something Most Americans Have Never Heard of—the “Qubit” | When Miles Taylor first stepped foot in Google’s quantum computing laboratory, he knew he was somewhere special. “You felt like you were in the lab where they built the Apollo 11 command module that went to the Moon,” Taylor reflected in a recent interview. “There was historical significance in the air.”  Source: ACCESSWIRE.   U.S. National Security May Soon Depend on Something Most Americans Have Never Heard of—the “Qubit”…

What could quantum computing mean for the City of London? | Researchers have been discussing the possibility that quantum computing could make traditional computing speeds obsolete since the 1970’s. Nearly half a century later, the money – and technology – seem to be flowing in to finally make the idea a reality.  Source: FStech.   What could quantum computing mean for the City of London?

Three Trent University Researchers Receive over $300,000 in Federal Funding through John R. Evans Leaders Fund | “Our researchers have always thought big. Now, more than ever, they need state-of-the-art labs and equipment to turn their visions into reality,” said Francois-Philippe Champagne, minister of Innovation, Science and Industry. “Investing in our university research infrastructure is key to our continuing role as an innovation leader in wide-ranging fields, from Indigenous research to quantum computing, from neurobiology to advanced robotics. These investments will not only support our ground-breaking contributions to science and research but also improve our economy, environment and quality of life.”  Source: PTBO canada.   Three Trent University Researchers Receive over $300,000 in Federal Funding through John R.
