What should the United States do if it wants to lead the quantum race in the long run?

  • It might be to invest in workforce training and education, to grow the next generation of scientists.
  • It might be to guarantee an initial market for quantum computing services. By pre-purchasing cloud computing hours (and making them available for companies in a highly subsidized manner) the government can both make it attractive to set up quantum computers on the cloud, as well as provide lower-cost access to those experimenting with quantum.
  • It might be to double down on the efforts to curb IP theft by hackers and state-sponsored organizations so that IP remains under the control of those that developed it.
