(FedScoop) The Department of Energy announced plans this week to make $40 million in grant funding available to multidisciplinary teams developing advanced algorithms and software for quantum computers. Some projects may develop new programming languages and debuggers adaptable to various quantum computing systems, while still allowing them to interface with classical computers.
“Continued investments in quantum computing will focus the intellectual prowess of our scientists and engineers on the development of technologies that the private sector can convert into commercial applications to improve the lives and security of all Americans,” said Energy Secretary Rick Perry in the announcement.
