President Biden is expected to sign an executive order and national security memo on Wednesday to advance quantum information science to enable the United States to get “way ahead” of adversaries and mitigate the risks emerging technology poses to national and economic security.
A senior government official said the US has “long been a world leader” in the development of new technologies, including quantum, a broad field of science and technology.
Quantum technologies are not a replacement for traditional computers, but a “fundamentally different kind of computer” with the ability to analyze information in ways that traditional computers cannot. According to officials, quantum technologies have shown the potential to drive innovation in America’s economy.
