President Donald Trump on Friday signed legislation ramping up quantum computing research and development.

The National Quantum Initiative Act (H.R. 6227) authorizes $1.2 billion over five years for federal activities aimed at boosting investment in quantum information science, or QIS, and supporting a quantum-smart workforce.

Are you serious with that statement?

You believe we the US is spending that money solely on the research or perhaps to also deploy our own citizens to participate in that research?

Why would we wish to do that with foreigners anyway as the article says China and EU are already committing their own resources on similar projects?

I surmise one reason this was implemented was due to undue reliance on foreign interests in the technology world and usage of foreigners would be counterproductive to the security of the project itself.

Yeah, your average out of work American can pronounce, let alone understand, the concepts involved.

Nice to see the confidence level a non-technical type like you gives for us technical folks.

I categorically reject your premises that we are incapable as a country to incubate our own in this project.

Why, so some Chinese spy can steal the information after it is found and fly back to China to sell it for a few milliion and retire training other kids to do the same thing.
