Sligthly related to this question, but not the same.
Traditional computer science requires no physics knowledge for a computer scientist to be able to research and make progress in the field. Of course, you do need to know about the underlying physical layer when your research is related to that, but in many cases you can ignore it (e.g. when designing an algorithm). Even when architectural details are important (e.g. cache layout), oftentimes it is not necessary to know all the details about them, or how they're implemented at the physical level.
Has quantum computing reached this level of "maturity"? Can you design a quantum algorithm, or do actual research in the field, as a computer scientist that doesn't know anything about quantum physics? In other words, can you "learn" quantum computing ignoring the physical side, and is it worth it (in terms of scientific career)?
