Trump’s 2020 Budget Requests $430 Million to Support Quantum Computing

By IQT News posted 05 Apr 2019

(NextGov) The White House has requested $430 million in 2020 to support quantum computing research within the Pentagon, Energy, NSF and National Institute of Standards and Technology. The proposal also included some $850 million to help Energy, NIH, NSF and NIST advance artificial intelligence.
The Trump administration’s 2020 budget request comes as the White House presses federal agencies to prioritize investments in “industries of the future,” namely artificial intelligence, 5G, quantum computing and advanced manufacturing. The 2020 request would cut overall research and development spending by roughly $6.5 billion—or 5 percent—but the blow would land entirely on civilian agencies.
