Quantum Computing
I know more than most non-science majors, but I'm not going to pretend I understand it all. I just regurgitate about 40% of my knowledge on the subject.

I've been reading and studying the issue and I would like to speak with someone on the subject of quantum computing and quantum computing so that I can obtain a better understanding on the subject and get some pointers on how to study it, run experiments, and find more people who want to speak about it.

I find many people are very intimidated by the subject or have the same understanding that I do. I need someone brave and someone very knowledgeable. Maybe a grad student or PhD on here?

Thanks!

I guess I count.

RE: Quantum Computing
I have no credentials in this area, but, is it quantum computing or quantum computer networking?

Depends - those are different things. Like classical information theory, classical computer science, and classical networking...

I know a lot about it, but what is the subject he is specifically talking about.? (That was what I was asking.)
Is it quantum computing or quantum networking?

RE: Quantum Computing
I've previously considered learning more about quantum computing and there are simulators out there to allow people to learn how to program one but decided not to pursue it. I realised that it would only make sense for me to do that if I could be confident in a career in academia and I've long since come to the conclusion that it's not going to happen for me. I don't have enough time to do what I want as it is.

I would love to learn more about it though.
