The time has come to consider appropriate guardrails to ensure quantum technology benefits humanity and the planet. With quantum development still in flux, the science community shares a responsibility in defining principles and practices.

In the era of quantum utility, the Stanford Center for Responsible Quantum Technology’s mission is to help create norms and values-based quantum ecosystems with beneficial societal outcomes, actively steering towards a quantum safe future on the global scale. The Center’s goal is to ensure that quantum research and innovation efforts meet societal demands and enhance planetary welfare, guided by a framework for Responsible Quantum Technology.
