The world has embarked on another massive technological and social surge—the quantum revolution. The countries that master quantum technology will dominate the information-processing space for decades and perhaps centuries to come, giving them control and influence over sectors such as advanced manufacturing, pharmaceuticals, the digital economy, logistics, national security and intelligence.
Our new report, An Australian strategy for the quantum revolution, published by ASPI’s International Cyber Policy Centre argues that Australia needs a clear quantum strategy with strong political leadership and an organised drive with policy focus and public investment.
Without this coordinated effort, Australia will be left behind.
Our report focuses on analysis and building policy recommendations to help Australia better leverage the quantum revolution. The report also recognises that quantum is just one among a number of critical technologies.
