Quantum Information Science
USRA, NASA, and Google have established a joint Quantum Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (QuAIL).
Research includes fundamental research in quantum physics and computer science, as well as applied research exploring application of quantum computing to various domains including planning and scheduling and fault management for various space and aeronautics applications.
USRA manages the QuAIL Science Operations to engage the broader research community, and manages the technical operations of a D-Wave 2000QTM system located at NASA's Ames Research Center. A percentage of computing time is available to U.S. universities and non-profits. More information about this program is available at Request for Proposals.
