Richard Moore will say terrorists, organised crime gangs and hostile states are wreaking havoc in both the physical and digital worlds.

The Chief of the Secret Intelligence Service says this means MI6 must tap into the global IT industry because Beijing, Moscow and Tehran all want to develop super computers to predict their enemies’ next moves.

This means Britain must make advances in similar technologies, Mr Moore will say. He is expected to tell the International Institute for Strategic Studies: “Unlike Q in the Bond movies, we cannot do it all in-house.

“I cannot stress enough what a sea-change this is in MI6’s culture, ethos and way of working.

“We have traditionally relied primarily on our own capabilities to develop the world class technologies we need to stay secret.”

Prime Minister Boris Johnson said this month in a speech that he has “set the ambition” of UK scientists building a quantum computer to “secure the single biggest share of a global quantum computing market by 2040.”

The machines instantly allow vast swathes of data to be analysed and could be critical in wars.

China is said to be trying to crack internet encryptions with quantum computers by the end of this decade.

And Russia has indicated it wants to be a world leader in AI technology.

Mr Moore is expected to say: “Our adversaries are pouring money and ambition into mastering artificial intelligence, quantum computing and synthetic biology, because they know that mastering these technologies will give them leverage.”
