TOKYO -- Nippon Telegraph and Telephone will open a facility in Silicon Valley to conduct research in such cutting-edge technologies as artificial intelligence and quantum computers, as the Japanese IT powerhouse accelerates its overseas business expansion, Nikkei has learned.

NTT's first overseas basic research center, to be announced Tuesday, will accumulate intellectual property for use in business 10 to 20 years down the road, rather than for immediate applications.
