Background And Existing Literature

Practically, Quantum Information Science [QIS] is combination of some more subfield. The main field from Quantum Side is Quantum Physics, Quantum Mechanics, Quantum Computing and other hand the domain of Information side; which is combination of Management Science, Computer Science, Information Technology, Cognitive Science, and Operation Research and so on (Bouwmeester et.al., 1997; Ahn, 2000; Paul, 2013a).

Key Terms in this Chapter

Quantum Information Science: Quantum Information Science [QIS] is a new field which is responsible for faster and advance Communication powered by QBIT. Actually Quantum is the main pillar of Quantum Science. The integration of Quantum Science and Information Science may treat as Quantum Information Science [QIS]. Quantum Computer plays an important role to build healthy Quantum Information Science [QIS] practice. Today’s super computer and in future computer QBIT may solve hard problem and may able in speed up communication in Computation.

Interdisciplinary: Connection between some subjects irrespective of domain and direct and indirect connection with main facet or sub field.

Information School: I-Schools are academic units which work for professional and academic solution of Information and Technologies. Information Schools are responsible for providing manpower in the field of Information and Technologies and Computing. I-Schools gained popularity during 1990’s when internet reached the common people and other commercial ventures. It is in this time the explosion of information has lead the development of healthy information management approach. Earlier evolution of I-Schools provided such knowledge as Library Science, Communication Science, Mass-Communication, Computer Science and Information Technology.

Computing: Computing includes designing and building hardware and software systems for a wide range of purposes; processing, structuring, and managing various kinds of information; doing scientific studies using computers; making computer systems behave intelligently; creating and using communications and entertainment media; finding and gathering information relevant to any particular purpose, and so on.

Quantum Computing: Computers which are run according to the power and system of Quantum Bit and only employed for faster computer operation.

Information Science: Information Science is actually a discipline of disciplines. It has come from the subject which deals with information, information services, information activities and digital information. So mainly from library science, archive science, documentation science, computer science it has originated; however this is not truly computer science nor library science. This is an interdisciplinary science; which is a combination of Library Science, Computer Science, Information Technology, Management Science, Operation Research and the subjects that deal with information.

Information: Information as a concept has a diversity of meanings, from everyday usage to technical settings. Generally speaking, the concept of information is closely related to notions of constraint, communication, control, data, form, instruction, knowledge, meaning, mental stimulus, pattern, perception, and representation.
