Today I read a paper titled “Quantum Interaction Approach in Cognition, Artificial Intelligence and Robotics”
The abstract is:
The mathematical formalism of quantum mechanics has been successfully employed in the last years to model situations in which the use of classical structures gives rise to problematical situations, and where typically quantum effects, such as ‘contextuality’ and ‘entanglement’, have been recognized.
This ‘Quantum Interaction Approach’ is briefly reviewed in this paper focusing, in particular, on the quantum models that have been elaborated to describe how concepts combine in cognitive science, and on the ensuing identification of a quantum structure in human thought.
We point out that these results provide interesting insights toward the development of a unified theory for meaning and knowledge formalization and representation.
Then, we analyze the technological aspects and implications of our approach, and a particular attention is devoted to the connections with symbolic artificial intelligence, quantum computation and robotics.
