The nominating institution Forschungszentrum Jülich on the breakthrough:

With quantum computing we face the beginning of a paradigm shift in computer science and scientific computing, which can considerably change science, industry, economy and our every-day life. The demonstration of quantum supremacy, which required a sufficiently large quantum processor with a sufficiently low error rate (Google’s Sycamore), the fastest supercomputers and a problem that is difficult for a conventional computer but simple for a quantum computer, is herein a milestone.
