OSTP Leads Implementation of the National Quantum Initiative Act
Today, The White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) took significant steps in the implementation of the National Quantum Initiative Act, signed into law by President Trump in December. As called for in the Act, OSTP chartered the National Quantum Coordination Office, which will work with Federal agencies in developing and maintaining quantum programs, connecting with stakeholders, enabling access and use of R&D infrastructure, and supporting the National Science and Technology Council’s (NSTC) Subcommittee on Quantum Information Science.

MIT researchers have developed a novel cryptography circuit that can be used to protect low-power internet of things (IoT) devices in the coming age of quantum computing.
Quantum computers can in principle execute calculations that today are practically impossible for classical computers. Bringing quantum computers online and to market could one day enable advances in medical research, drug discovery, and other applications. But there’s a catch: If hackers also have access to quantum computers, they could potentially break through the powerful encryption schemes that currently protect data exchanged between devices.

Yale researchers create a universal entangler for new quantum tech
One of the key concepts in quantum physics is entanglement, in which two or more quantum systems become so inextricably linked that their collective state can’t be determined by observing each element individually. Now Yale researchers have developed a “universal entangler” that can link a variety of encoded particles on demand.
