    The recently announced AUKUS technology-sharing pact is about much more than the United Kingdom and United States helping Australia get nuclear-powered submarines; it is an agreement to share platforms and innovation costs for advanced technologies like artificial intelligence and quantum computing. Much of America’s rapidly expanding quantum sector has been fuelled by Australian discoveries and research. But the agreement highlights that, rather than be an intellectual supplier to the US, Australia needs to initiate a strategic investment in quantum technology as a national priority.
