The Quantum Insider Insights: Can China Turn Engineering Prowess into Quantum Domination?


In this edition of The Quantum Insider, we take a deeper dive into recent news that Chinese scientists have smashed quantum supremacy with their superconducting qubit device. They previously hit that milestone with a optical circuit device.

The news, which was described in ArXiv, poses almost as many questions as it answers, such as:

  • What does this mean for the big picture of quantum technology development?
  • Is this a sign that China is “the” quantum leader, rather than “a” quantum leader?
  • How is this development related to other quantum technology work recently reported by Chinese scientists and engineers?
  • And how does China’s business climate relate to the nation’s scientific climate.
