I will discuss the uncertainty in quantum mechanics as a property reflecting the "quantity" (measure)
on the set of possible probing outcomes. This is in contrast to the commonly used "spectral distance"
(metric). An unexpected insight into the nature of quantum uncertainty (and that of measure)
is obtained as a result. One of the motivations for considering measure uncertainty is that it is directly
relevant for assessing the efficiency of quantum computation.
