On May 5, nearly 40 members of Q-NEXT and experts from outside companies met for a daylong workshop to create a roadmap that outlines the research and scientific discoveries needed for the distribution of quantum entanglement on a 10- to 15-year timescale. The roadmap will both help define Q-NEXT R&D milestones and guide the broader QIS field in advancing quantum technologies for basic science, the government and commerce.
Led by Q-NEXT Chief Technology Officer Supratik Guha, the workshop aimed to identify
- Key impacts for the public good.
- Systems and scientific discoveries that would deliver these impacts.
- Major developments and metrics that need to be achieved.
- Impediments to these developments.
Organizers of this effort will notify the collaboration about opportunities to engage in roadmap development in the future.
