The National Quantum Initiative Advisory Committee Quantum information science (QIS) has the opportunity to revolutionize our scientific knowledge, improve our industrial base, and provide substantial economic and national security benefits. Many recognize that QIS technologies will likely underpin almost every aspect of technology two decades from now, as can be seen by the strong increase in industrial investment from both established firms and a host of new startups. This base science and technology matters. Think to the impact of atomic clocks, an early quantum technology, on enabling the Global Positioning System and modern telecommunications. We are witnessing a second information technology (IT) revolution with quantum devices enabling previously undreamt of possibilities. Fundamentally, new technologies of this nature can come to underpin significant aspects of the national economic and defense ecosystem. The National Quantum Initiative Act calls for the establishment of a wholeof-Government approach to QIST research and development—the NQI. This effort will leverage the leadership position of the United States in this area PO 00000 Frm 00011 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 47941 to expand our global edge in the face of increasing international and multinational pressure.

One of the Committee’s activities will be to provide biennial reports on the NQI to ensure that recommendations for improvements and changes are developed and promulgated on a regular basis, enabling research on the cutting edge of scientific discovery, the next generation workforce, the next generation industry, international collaboration, and economic and national security. Unless otherwise extended, the Committee will terminate December 21, 2030, 11 years after the date of the NQIA signing, according to the exception to section 14 of the FACA in the NQIA.
