The convergence of quantum technology and artificial intelligence will have far-reaching consequences for humanity. This urges us to proceed responsibly. In this context, a Stanford led research team conceptualized Responsible Quantum Technology (RQT) as a framework designed to ensure that research and innovation efforts meet societal demands and expectations and enhance planetary welfare. The RQT framework embeds the key RRI principles of responsiveness, inclusivity, reflexivity, and anticipation alongside ethical, legal, socioeconomic, and policy implications (Quantum-ELSPI).

In a second study, the same research group reached 10 Principles for Responsible Quantum Innovation, with the ultimate goal of safeguarding, engaging, and advancing quantum technologies, society, and humankind.
