Biological Memories and Agents as Quantum Collectives

Quantum mechanical models have been proposed for biological processes and for cognition and decision in domains that appear to be beyond the de Broglie wavelength. The basis of such quantum behavior

Information and Learning in Neural Systems

Developing learning mechanisms that can recall given a fragment of the memory and a model for instantaneous learning in a neural network and introduced the notion of quantum neural computing and investigated new aspects of quantum entropy.

Another Look at Quantum Neural Computing

It is argued that the reorganizational behavior of the brain may be viewed as inner adjustment corresponding to its quantum behavior at the system level, and not only neural structures but their higher abstractions also may be seen as whole entities.

Is Consciousness Computable?

  • S. Kak
  • Psychology
  • 2019
This commentary reviews different scientific positions for and against consciousness being a computable property and it is argued that the view which assigns consciousness a separate category is consistent with both quantum mechanics and certain results in cognitive science.

Languages and Agents in Biological Systems

This chapter provides a general discussion of the hierarchy of languages and metalanguages that must be associated with a biological system and postulates a language whose primitives are quantum mechanical objects.

The Limits to Machine Consciousness

It is argued that consciousness is more than an epiphenomenon and assuming it to be a separate category is consistent with both quantum mechanics and cognitive science.

Perceived Reality, Quantum Mechanics, and Consciousness

Our sense of reality is different from its mathematical basis as given by physical theories. Although nature at its deepest level is quantum mechanical and nonlocal, it appears to our minds in

Intelligent Computing Everywhere

This book discusses Artificial Intelligence in Challenging Environments, the Confluence of Ubiquitous/Pervasive Computing and Artificial Intelligence, and the Nonclassical Mind.

This paper investigates some properties of the states obtained in a decision tree structure and classical tree representations and approximations to quantum states are provided.

Artificial and Biological Intelligence

Scientists believe that humans will eventually create silicon machines with minds that will slowly spread all over the world, and the entire universe will eventually become a conscious machine.

Mind, matter, and quantum mechanics

A theory of psychophysical phenomena is proposed. It resolves simultaneously four basic problems of science, namely the problems of the connections between:(1) mind and matter,(2) quantum theory and

Quantum Brain Dynamics and Consciousness: An introduction

This introduction to quantum brain dynamics is accessible to a broad interdisciplinary audience. The authors, a brain scientist and a theoretical physicist, present a new quantum framework for

The Three Languages of the Brain: Quantum, Reorganizational, and Associative

It is being recognized that stimulus-response constructs such as “drive” are often inadequate in providing explanations; and one invokes the category “effort” to explain autonomous behavior.

Can We Define Levels of Artificial Intelligence?

It is argued that matching the conceptual abilities of animals would require new approaches to AI, and defining graded levels of intelligence would permit the identification of resources needed for implementation.

Quantum brain dynamics and consciousness : an introduction

This book presents a quantum approach to Brain Functioning, Consciousness and Life through the lens of quantum field theory, which addresses the role of the brain in conscious experience.

What is mind that the brain may order it

9. Bntmduction Over the past 25 years there has been a convergence of interest on the problem of how conscious experience is generated. The convergence originates in mathematics, physics, brain

Brain Processes and Phenomenal Consciousness

A hypothesis on the physiological conditions for the occurrence of phenomenal states is presented. It is suggested that the presence of phenomenal states depends on the rate at which neural

Vais . n . ava Metaphysics or a Science of Consciousness

Mainstream science deals with the exploration of the large and the small. Over the last few centuries, two fundamental theories have emerged: (i) classical physics, which describes the properties of

The Initialization Problem in Quantum Computing

  • 1998
The paper presents general observations on the nonlocal nature of quantum errors and the expected performance of the recently proposed quantum error-correction codes that are based on the assumption that the errors are either bit-flip or phase-Flip or both.
