ROME, N.Y. -- SUNY Poly and Rome Labs have teamed up to open one of several national Quantum computing research centers.
It's located at Griffiss Business and Technology Park.
United States Senator Chuck Schumer traveled to Rome to tout the possibilities.
Last year, Congress passed the National Quantum Initiative Act.
Experts say once fully developed, Quantum computers could perform at speeds millions of times faster than today's most advanced machines.
Schumer says SUNY Poly's partnership with Rome Lab's existing Quantum research capabilities are critical to capturing new federal opportunities for the area.
