What is QIS?

Conceptual quantum computer processor.
A new frontier in economic and national security

Quantum Information Science (QIS) is the study of the application of quantum physics to acquire, store, transmit, and process information in ways that greatly exceed existing capabilities in the areas of next generation computing, information processing, and measurement.
