The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency is looking for multidisciplinary teams to support its programs that integrate quantum concepts into classical systems, the agency said Wednseday.
The Optimization with Noisy Intermediate-Scale Quantum devices program addresses combinatorial optimization issues through the use of both quantum information processing and classical-only systems.
Agency officials want to combine classical systems and medium-sized quantum platforms to solve optimization problems. Interested teams must possess significant experience in applied mathematics, computer science and experimental and theoretical physics.
A Proposerâs Day will be held on March 19 in Arlington, VA, to discuss the initiative.
