Quantum science and quantum technology have become significant areas that have the potential to bring up revolutions in various branches or applications including aeronautics and astronautics, military and defense, meteorology, brain science, healthcare, advanced manufacturing, cybersecurity, artificial intelligence, etc. In this study, we present the advances and trends of quantum technology. Specifically, the advances and trends cover quantum computers and Quantum Processing Units (QPUs), quantum computation and quantum machine learning, quantum network, Quantum Key Distribution (QKD), quantum teleportation and quantum satellites, quantum measurement and quantum sensing, and post-quantum blockchain and quantum blockchain. Some challenges are also introduced.
