Quantum-like Computation and "Thinking" Based on

Y. F. Orlov
Cornell University, US

Keywords: na

Abstract:
Classical systems containing decision-making elements can possess quantum-like properties, most importantly interference of probabilities of different decisions. We demonstrate this theoretically using a set of linear numbered oscillators combined with decision-making and other devices. This algorithmically indeterministic system, although classical, can be described in terms of quantum-like unitary transformations, complex wave functions, and non-commuting operators; the decision-making device plays a role similar to the measuring apparatus in quantum mechanics. The system can be used to construct quantum-like bits and logical gates for quantum-like calculations. And as a hypothetical part of some intelligence, it enables that intelligence to have different viewpoints on the same subject and to estimate their differences numerically. References: Yuri F.
