(FinanceYahoo) Intel recently collaborated with Argonne National Laboratory to accelerate research in the quantum computing field.
The latest development follows the announcement of creation of five new quantum research centers across the United States by the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE). These research centers will be managed by DOE-affiliated National Laboratories.
Q-Next is one such research center, which will be managed by Argonne National Laboratory in association with 20 other partners. These include SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, California Institute of Technology, Universities of Chicago and Minnesota along with technology giants with quantum computing exposure like Microsoft MSFT, Keysight Technologies KEYS and International Business machines IBM, apart from Intel.
