Australia is quickly becoming a quantum computing powerhouse

Creating the world’s first functioning quantum computer has been called the space race of this generation. And like the space race, it’s captured the imaginations of people around the world.

The stakes are high, and many countries, companies and research institutes are pumping millions of dollars into engineering one. But one surprise up-and-comer in this race is Australia, which has racked up some notable achievements in recent years. Will Australia be the place where quantum computing makes the leap from theory to fact?
