To strengthen its bid to deliver the world's fastest and most reliable computer system, Singapore poured over $98.5 million to build a research center for quantum technology.

The Research Center of Excellence on Quantum Information Science and Technology (QIST), located at the National University of Singapore, was funded by the Education Ministry and the National Research Foundation.

The research center will focus on quantum technologya new science that integrates physics, math and computer science to enable faster and smaller computers, and also touted to secure the transmission of information such that hacking computers will be impossible.

According to a Channel NewsAsia report, QIST will reportedly focus research on new niche areas of quantum technology such as quantum cryptography, a new field of study that makes systems more secure for over-the-air transmission of sensitive information.
