Belle II at the electron-positron collider SuperKEKB is the
successor to the Belle experiment. It aims to record 50 ab-1 of data
over the course of the project, which will allow for measuring
Cabibbo-Kobayashi-Maskawa (CKM) matrix in unprecedented
precision. Belle II also have the capability to perform direct search
for new physics beyond the Standard Model such as light dark matter
and dark-sector mediators. Belle II started its physics data-taking in
2018, and as of today, about 200 fb-1 of data were collected. In 2020,
SuperKEKB has broken the world record in the peak luminosity
previously made by KEKB. Since then, it keeps beating its record. This
talk will present the operation status and prospect for the
SuperKEKB/Belle II experiment as well as the first physics results
based on early dataset.
