Why Learn Quantum ?
Louis Pasteur had said that Fortune favours the prepared mind. That if you are well-read, educated and experienced, you will recognise opportunities that seem to occur by chance. For Pasteur it is both an admission of the role played by chance in his life, but also an insistence that someone less prepared than him would not have recognised the discovery nor realised what it would lead to.
We have seen this play out with several people where it seems that they were at the right place at the right time. We see it most often in the career of IITians and the opportunities in IT and now AI.
The next big thing happening that will transform our world are Quantum Technologies. Today’s quantum computers are big and noisy, and there are several challenges to overcome before we have error-corrected processors capable of wider use . This is exactly why it’s important to start now. And, again, there are plenty of problems that may have quantum solutions we haven’t thought of yet — how neat would it be if you discovered one of those!
Because of the enormous potential of quantum computing, as the technology rapidly grows and the workforce grows, there could be a globally high demand for quantum talent . And you could be just what this field needs! Begin your quantum learning journey today!
