Friday Sync-Up: Google Going for Quantum Superiority

Every Friday, I present a topic or question for our merry band of thinkers, leaders, and pirates to discuss in an open thread. Here is this week’s conversation starter:

Google wants to build a “useful, error-corrected quantum computer” within ten years, according to a company blog post

Question: What do you think would be the implications of a private company achieving this innovation before a government could do so (in the US, China, or elsewhere)? Would that be significant or no big deal?
