DARPA Polyplexus Pilot Topic Opportunity Notice for Quantum Bio-Computing (Topic 15)
Proposers are strongly encouraged to submit an abstract in advance of a full proposal to minimize effort and reduce the potential expense of preparing an out of scope proposal. Final deadline for abstract submission in response to this topic is September 16, 2019 at 4:00 PM Eastern time
Final deadline for proposal submission in response to this topic is October 29, 2019 at 4:00 PM Eastern time.
The updated topic can be found in on the polyplexus.com website as Quantum Bio-Computing (Topic 15) https://polyplexus.com/incubator?idIncubator=256
The purpose of this special notice is to explore whether some biological phenomena manifest and exploit quantum entanglement. If there is a distributed or non-local role for entanglement in, for example, robust fault tolerant information transfer in DNA replication, a deeper understanding could impact not only our appreciation of biology and medicine, but also could advance quantum computing and neural interfaces to computers using molecular electronics.
