Quantum Alliance

As we reach the fundamental limits of physical computing, novel intrinsically quantum systems are gaining traction both in commercial industrial designs as well as defense applications. Enabling quantum information processing requires breakthrough advances in the technology, engineered systems and underlying materials as well as computing architectures, models and algorithms. The success of a Quantum Computer will not only pave the way towards solving computationally hard and challenging problems in optimizations, cryptography, and machine learning; but also allow scientists and engineers to better understand matter, material systems and the quantum states of many-body systems. This requires cross-disciplinary research to span over a large research space across multiple colleges and schools.
