(InsideHPC) The U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Science, under the leadership of Under Secretary of Energy Paul Dabbar, recently sponsored a workshop to begin laying the groundwork for a nationwide entangled quantum Internet.
The workshop explored the specific research and engineering advances needed to build a quantum Internet in the near term, along with what is needed to move from today’s limited local network experiments to a viable, secure quantum Internet.
Approximately 70 representatives from multiple government agencies and universities at the first Quantum Internet Blueprint Workshop in early February. The event was organized by Brookhaven. The technical program committee was co-chaired by Kerstin Kleese Van Dam, director of the Computational Science Initiative at Brookhaven, and Inder Monga, director of ESnet at Lawrence Berkeley National Lab.
