Act Together or Hack Together? There is a difference in viewpoint on the efficacy of quantum computing and hacking, the ethics behind it, and the countries involved. Should we be prepared, cyber-armed, if you will, to protect ourselves? Russia and China are in control of their systems. The U.S. looks, or prefers, to have backdoors for law-enforcement. What has the E.U. done? Is Europe’s only choice “…to set an example and go for open systems?” With a real quantum computer not in the immediate offing, are we creating much to-do about nothing?
