“President Biden is expected to sign an executive order and a national security memo Wednesday to advance quantum information science in an effort to place the United States in a position to be able to ‘leapfrog well ahead’ of adversaries and mitigate risks that the emerging technology poses to national and economic security. A senior administration official said the U.S. has ‘long been a global leader’ in the development of new technologies, including quantum, a broad field of science and engineering. Quantum technologies are not a replacement to traditional computers, but rather a ‘fundamentally different kind of computer’ with the ability to analyze information in ways that traditional computers cannot. Quantum technologies, according to officials, have shown the potential to drive innovation in the American economy.” (05/04/22)
