(InterestingEngineering) AT&T has formed a partnership called Intelligent Quantum Networks and Technologies (INQNET) to move the power of quantum computing out of the labs and into the real world. Researchers from the California Institute of Technology, Stanford University, national laboratories, startups, the military, and other institutions will work together on the project.
They will look into possibly linking quantum computers to amplify their power in a similar way that linking conventional computers led to massive supercomputers.
