Four Reasons Why Being Quantum Curious Makes Sense

Here are four explicit motivations why now is a great time to spark up your quantum curiosity:

(1) If a reliable and economically sensible quantum computer can be built, it will solve a wide range of important problems beyond the reach of today’s best supercomputers.

It’s not exaggerating to claim access to these devices will radically transform society, preparing Homo Sapiens like no other technology since fire, to step boldly into the solar system and beyond.

(2) Hence why there’s a wide spectrum of activity – from startups to large enterprises, along with globally recognized research institutions, and growing list of sovereign nations – all collaborating to move Quantum Computing forward. Such multi-category activity means there’s a growing demand for non-STEM expertise.

(3) Engaging with these highly informative sessions on Quantum Computing is your excellent opportunity to jump into the loop on this innately exciting approach to computing.

The insights you’ll learn by engaging in these quality curated sessions will put you at a notable advantage when this genuinely transformative technology is ready for Main Street.

(4) Wrap your mind around a captivating alluring model of how the world really works. Simultaneously intriguing and rewarding, you’ll see the world in a radically new way as you learn the rules of the game when the playing board is measured in Plank Units.

Why This Site?

Quantum Curious is a collaboration between Terrill Frantz and Nathan Schor, respectively a teacher and student of Quantum Computing, and is maintained by Athul Suresh.

Both of them realized that while there’s plenty of learning material available for those with advanced degrees in quantum physics, there’s not much for those lacking a hard-core STEM background.

Even more, when considering what is available for beginners, it’s not clear which content to pursue and in what order – a challenge sufficient to dampen the enthusiasm of the most ardent learner.

Hence, Quantum Curious aims to recommend material curated specifically for newbies like you, thereby optimizing your education experience, encouraging you to continue exploring and climbing the learning curve. 

A clear signal indicating Quantum Computing is building up to a promising future is the wide spectrum non-professional enthusiasts the field is attracting – from bio-engineering majors to Python coders to marketing gurus to technical attorneys, and not surprisingly, investors. Of course, each of those arrives with their individual goals.

Delivering to you timely and useful content is much easier if we knew something your specific background and intentions. Please let us know those by answering this one-page one-minute questionnaire.

Finally, Let us know if you’re interested in helping with this much needed initiative. It’s a great way to become acquainted with the industry and its contributors.

Getting Started

An effective way to optimize online learning is to answer a quick one-minute questionnaire.

This allows us to suggest learning resources aligned with your STEM experience.

No matter if you're a newbie or an accredited engineer, we have much content customizable to your learning goals.
