The ecosystem will be guided by the principles of ethics, inclusion and sustainability.

VANCOUVER — Quantum Algorithms Institute is creating a Centre for Responsible Quantum Innovation and Technology to build a quantum technology ecosystem guided by the principles of ethics, inclusion and sustainability.

The Centre for Responsible Quantum Innovation and Technology will address questions related to quantum technology through research, and best practices, as well as collaboration and communication. These questions include:

  • Ethics and Societal Impact: Advancing fairness, transparency, privacy, and accountability in the development and use of quantum technologies.
  • Inclusion and Access: Promoting equitable access to the benefits of quantum technology, fostering inclusive development processes, and removing potential negative impacts on marginalized communities.
  • Environmental Sustainability: Considering the environmental impacts of quantum technology throughout its lifecycle and striving to minimize ecological footprints through sustainable design, manufacturing and use.
  • Guidelines and Wise Practises: Actively engaging with policymakers regulatory bodies, and industry to shape effective and adaptive frameworks that balance innovation with risk management, compliance, and societal interests.
  • Public Trust and Communication: Building and maintaining public trust by fostering transparency, accountability, and broad engagement throughout the innovation process.

Partners of the Centre for Responsible Quantum Innovation and Technology include Leap QuantiK Inc. Canada, Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics, NSERC Chairs for Women in Science and Engineering (ON), Laurier Centre for Women in Science and Canadian Innovation Network.
