Executive Summary: Quantum Frontiers are areas to explore where solutions to grand challenges can lead to transformative advances in quantum information science, engineering, and technology. With input from the QIS R&D community, the NQCO identified eight quantum frontiers. These are elaborated upon in the Quantum Frontiers Report which cites community responses to the public request for information regarding the National Strategic Overview for QIS. Also cited are three dozen scientific and technical reports from federally funded QIS workshops, roundtables, and studies. These reports can be found in the quantum.gov publication library here.

Executive Summary: Artificial intelligence (AI) and quantum information science (QIS) are key industries of the future that will power economic growth and strengthen national security for years to come. The Trump Administration recognizes the strategic importance of these emerging technologies and has taken decisive action to advance America’s AI and QIS leadership.

In February 2020, President Trump’s Fiscal Year (FY) 2021 Budget put the United States on a path to double Federal research and development (R&D) spending in nondefense AI and QIS by FY2022.

This report provides a summary of Federal R&D spending in nondefense artificial intelligence and quantum information science for Fiscal Years 2020 – 2021. It demonstrates that the Administration is well on its way to fulfilling the President’s request to double investment.

A Strategic Vision for America’s Quantum Networks

Executive Summary: Quantum computing and networking technologies are still at an early stage of research and development (R&D). The strategic vision focuses America’s R&D efforts to advance the development of foundations for the quantum internet. It establishes QIS community goals for quantum networking, and recommends six specific technical areas for focused research activity.

This strategic vision is driven by the National Quantum Initiative Act (NQIA), signed into law by President Trump in December 2018, to accelerate QIS R&D through increased federal investment and coordination. The strategy was developed through the NQIA’s coordinating bodies, the National Quantum Coordination Office (NQCO) and the National Science and Technology Council’s Subcommittee on Quantum Information Science (SCQIS) and reflects deep community input from SCQIS request for information responses of 2018-2019 and from recent workshops hosted by Federal agencies.
