This discussion paper from Sydney Quantum Academy and KPMG Australia calls for greater understanding of potential impacts, public engagement, and the development of an ethical framework for quantum technologies.

It draws from a roundtable discussion with a panel of experts including scientists, ethicists, industry leaders, and legal professionals held in October 2021 and facilitated by KPMG. It identifies several areas that industry, government, and community stakeholders need to consider as the technology matures including inequality of access, risks to privacy, and the emergence of quantum strategies for decision making.
