DARPA Set to Incubate Quantum Bio-computing

DARPA unveils new incubators for cognitive dissonance detection, quantum bio-computing and more

Excerpts and salient points ~

+  DARPA launched the addition of four new incubators on the Polyplexus portal, raising the total to 16 since its inception, with eight being active.

Think of DARPA’s incubators not in the traditional startup incubator sense, but as incubators of ideas through conversations that lead to a final proposal.

+  The Quantum Bio-Computing Incubator will explore whether some biological phenomena manifest and exploit quantum entanglement. “If there is a distributed or non-local role for entanglement in, for example, robust fault tolerant information transfer in DNA replication, a deeper understanding could impact not only our appreciation of biology and medicine, but also could advance quantum computing and neural interfaces to computers using molecular electronics,” the incubator description reads.

+  DARPA Defense Sciences Office intends to make at least one award of up to $100,000 and one year duration as a result of this process.
