From University of Chicago, Aug. 26, 2020: The Department of Energy is establishing five new National Quantum Information Science Research Centers, including a center led by Argonne and a center led by Fermilab, which are each projected to receive $115 million in funding over the next five years. The Fermilab-led center, called the Superconducting Quantum Materials and Systems Center, aims to build and deploy a beyond-state-of-the-art quantum computer based on superconducting technologies. The center also will develop new quantum sensors, which could lead to the discovery of the nature of dark matter and other elusive subatomic particles.

Create Impact With Your Cutting Edge Technology. Introducing: Accelerated I-Corps Program for Data Science The Polsky Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation is pleased to introduce a new, accelerated version of the I-Corps program, designed for data scientists. The Accelerated I-Corps Program will span four weeks and provide teams with a $500 grant to support their customer discovery efforts. The program uses experiential education to help data scientists/researchers gain valuable insight into entrepreneurship, starting a business, and/or industry requirements and challenges.

From HIT Infrastructure, July 30, 2020: The Department of Energy has unveiled a blueprint strategy for national quantum internet within the next decade to usher in an era of more secure communication, with health services slated to be early adopters. Already, scientists from Argonne National Laboratory and the University of Chicago intertwined photons across a 52-mile quantum loop. That network will soon be connected to Fermilab, creating three-node, 80-mile test bed.

From, July 27, 2020: The U.S. Department of Energy has unveiled a report that lays out a blueprint strategy for the development of a national quantum internet, bringing the United States to the forefront of the global quantum race and ushering in a new era of communications.

From The Science Times, July 25, 2020: The Department of Energy officials unveiled a blueprint strategy for a national quantum internet. The DOE is working with university and industry researchers, aiming to develop a prototype within this decade.

From New Atlas, July 26, 2020: The United States government is outlining its own plans to develop a national quantum internet. The blueprint was developed at a meeting in February by the DOE national laboratories, various universities and industry. The report lays out four areas of research that should be made a priority in order to develop the quantum internet and outlines five milestones that will mark the path toward making it a reality.

From The Hindu, July 27, 2020: The The U.S. Department of Energy announced that it is working toward a national quantum internet that will rely on the movement and interaction of subatomic particles to control and transmit information. Scientists from Argonne National Laboratory and the University of Chicago have already created a quantum network in the Chicago suburbs. It will soon connect it to its Fermilab, creating an 80-mile test bed.

From Built In Chicago, July 24, 2020: The Department of Energy has unveiled a plan to develop nationwide quantum internet — and Illinois is at the center of it. DOE representatives announced that Fermilab, Argonne National Laboratory and University of Chicago will play a key role in developing quantum internet for all.
