Report prepared by J. Bienfang, Z. Eldredge, A. Peng, J. Porto, K. Srinivasan, J. Taylor, and C. Williams.
Groundbreaking advances in our ability to control quantum systems have the potential to revolutionize
medicine, manufacturing, artificial intelligence, and national defense. In October 2017, “Building the
Foundations for Quantum Industry,” an event hosted by the National Institute of Standards and
Technology (NIST), brought together stakeholders from government, industry, and academia to consider
the challenges and opportunities in quantum information science (QIS). This report overviews the
identified challenges to scientific and industrial research and development, and compiles t...
