Yep, we are in the 2nd quantum revolution. Did you miss the first one? The first quantum revolution occurred nearly a century ago!! It led to the 20th-century technological revolution, which was based on the transistor, laser, and atomic clock which gave us computers, optical fiber communication, and the global positioning system. Even things we consider “life changing” such as the iPad and discovering the HIggs Boson are now “old”.
The second quantum revolution is about controlling individual quantum systems and focusing on applications of quantum systems. Quantum mechanics was applied first to information theory and then to information technology. To understand quantum information systems, one needs to understand math. Fortunately, the math does not have to be complex. I have seen good reviews on a book that lays out this simple math in a way that is appropriate for high school students. It has been ordered. Stay tuned for my own review. If I can understand it, anyone can.
