ML4Q Stories

Scientists have a lot to share. Many exciting stories to tell. On being a physicist. How do they perceive their world. Why are they doing what they are doing. Moments of satisfaction. Fulfillment. Frustration. Challenges. And of course, many science-related discussions. Thoughts on methodology. Theoretical debates. Opinions on where quantum science is heading.
