Measurements are at the heart of commerce, and thus business, as well as science. This partly motivates the presence of standards agencies, who professionally calibrate time, length, mass, etc. In science, new tools enable new science (e.g. Robert Hooke’s use of microscopes), which in turn leads to new technologies. The second phase of this cycle is the current status of the quantum information revolution. It is known that the attainable accuracy and precision of measurement estimates can benefit from the use of uniquely quantum strategies. I will discuss some of these techniques, and explore what is it about quantum mechanics that provides these advantages, including the developing field of nonlinear and multiparameter quantum metrology. I will address the gap between the principle and practice of quantum advantages in metrology, and what is needed to attain palpable advantages in quantum enhanced metrology.
