India aims to rival China in quantum computing



This program aims to develop quantum technologies in pursuit of India’s national interests, train a steady pool of Indian quantum technology experts, apply quantum technologies in engineering, scientific, defense, industrial, health and agricultural purposes and harness the potential of quantum technology as a driver of economic growth.

The driving force for these efforts may be China’s own quantum technology advancements. China’s 14th Five Year Plan emphasizes quantum technology among other fields, and it intends to install satellite-enabled, global “quantum-encrypted communications capability” by 2030.

In 2016, China launched the world’s first quantum satellite, built a 2,000-kilometre quantum communication line between Beijing and Shanghai, and the world’s first optical quantum computing machine prototype.

China’s quantum technology research may also be merged with its civilian infrastructure, as part of its Military-Civil Fusion Strategy that adds dual-use ambiguity to China’s efforts in this field.

As with India, China’s advancements in quantum technology have military applications, such as detecting submarines, stealth aircraft and cracking encrypted information.

Interesting but we are struggling with classical hardware itself.....superconducting materials and fluids and so on may be an uphill task for us but its an opportunity to level the gap
