Although fault-tolerant quantum computers are projected to be years to decades away, processors made from tens to hundreds of quantum bits have made significant progress in recent years, especially when working in tandem with a classical computer. These hybrid quantum/classical systems could enable technical disruption soon by superseding the best classical-only supercomputers in solving difficult optimization challenges and related problems of interest to defense, security, and industry.

DARPA is sponsoring a live webinar on Tuesday, April 11, 2023, to highlight an Advanced Research Concept (ARC) topic called Imagining Practical Applications for a Quantum Tomorrow (IMPAQT). Registrants will have the opportunity to hear from government experts, university professors, and industry-leading quantum hardware providers as well as participate in live question-and-answer sessions.
