Good morning, quantum computing technology has the potential to transform industries and solve society’s most pressing problems in the coming years.
The World Economic Forum recently published a report titled ‘Quantum Computing Governance Principles’. The report is an outcome of a global multi-stakeholder initiative to create a governance framework for quantum computing.
The WEF describes the report as laying out the first set of principles for the responsible design and adoption of quantum computing technologies to drive positive outcomes for society. The WEF also proposes key actions to be taken by stakeholders to incentivise the development of quantum computing while mitigating the possible risks.
There are several questions the report seeks to answer - questions that the team at Archer are frequently asked, including:
The WEF’s approach to formulating the principles and creating a broader framework for responsible and purpose-driven design and adoption of quantum computing technologies involved:
Quantum computing brings opportunities and challenges that are distinct from those of other computing technologies.
It is prudent then to consider the impact of quantum computing when it is in the early stages of global development. This helps create greater awareness of the technology and sheds light on the guiding principles applicable to its development.
