Northwest Quantum Nexus Formed to Promote Quantum Computing in Pacific Northwest
(BusinessInsider) Microsoft Quantum has announced that it’s working with the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory and the University of Washington to form a coalition called the Northwest Quantum Nexus. The coalition plans to promote the development of quantum computing in the Pacific Northwest region, as well as in parts of Canada. Northwest Quantum Nexus aims to encourage collaboration in quantum-computing projects and research, as well as address the shortage of skills in the field.
“We’re really at a moment when many businesses are starting to think about the promise of quantum information sciences and the promise of quantum computing for solving the world’s most challenging problems,” said Krysta Svore, general manager of quantum software at Microsoft.
