Schrödinger's Robot: Privacy in Uncertain States

Ian Kerr
2019 Theoretical Inquiries in Law  
Consequently, I conclude that legal theory and doctrine will have to expand their understanding of privacy relationships to include robots and AIs that meet these epistemic conditions.  ...  On the privacy side, one sees the very opposite: robots and AIs are, in a legal sense, nothing.  ...  Julie e. cohen, conFiguring The neTworKed selF: law, code, and The Play oF everyday PracTice (2012).

Seeking the foundations of cognition in bacteria: From Schrödinger's negative entropy to latent information

Eshel Ben Jacob, Yoash Shapira, Alfred I. Tauber
2006 Physica A: Statistical Mechanics and its Applications  
We take a different view and in Schro¨dinger's foot steps suggest that yet unknown physics principles of self-organization in open systems are missing for understanding how to assemble the cell's component  ...  The fundamental (primitive) elements of cognition in such systems include interpretation of (chemical) messages, distinction between internal and external information, and some self vs., non-self distinction  ...  Aharonov for illuminating conversations on quantum mechanics and decision-making and to H. Levine for conversations and collaboration on  ...

Stabilizer Codes and Quantum Error Correction [article]

Daniel Gottesman
1997 arXiv   pre-print
A group-theoretical structure and associated subclass of quantum codes, the stabilizer codes, has proved particularly fruitful in producing codes and in understanding the structure of both specific codes  ...  In the context of stabilizer codes, I will discuss a number of known codes, the capacity of a quantum channel, bounds on quantum codes, and fault-tolerant quantum computation.  ...  In practice, some linear combinations of σ x , σ y , and σ z are going to be more likely than others.  ...

Quantum Neural Networks [article]

Sanjay Gupta, R.K.P. Zia
2002 arXiv   pre-print
The precise dynamics of this operator are defined and while giving examples in which nonlinear Schrödinger's equations are applied, we speculate on its possible implementation.  ...  The many practical problems associated with the current model of quantum computing are alleviated in the new model.  ...  Acknowledgements: The author is indebted to Harald Hempel for carefully reading the first draft of the paper and suggesting numerous improvements.  ...

Fundamental Complexity Measures of Life [article]

Attila Grandpierre
2011 arXiv   pre-print
At present, there is a great deal of confusion regarding complexity and its measures (reviews on complexity measures are found in, e.g. Lloyd, 2001 and Shalizi, 2006 and more references therein).  ...  In this situation, it seems the task of determining the fundamental complexity measures of life is especially difficult.  ...  and Tauber, 2006, Seeking the foundations of cognition in bacteria: from Schrödinger's negative entropy to latent information.  ...

What Makes a Computation Unconventional? [article]

S. Barry Cooper
2013 arXiv   pre-print
A coherent mathematical overview of computation and its generalisations is described.  ...  This conceptual framework is sufficient to comfortably host a wide range of contemporary thinking on embodied computation and its models.  ...  Again, in computer science one has the allied notion of 'virtual machine' quite validly useful in both practical and theoretical contexts.  ...

A consistent quantum ontology

Robert B. Griffiths
2013 Studies in history and philosophy of modern physics  
The formalism of classical (Shannon) information theory applies without change in suitable quantum contexts, and this suggests the way in which quantum information theory extends beyond its classical counterpart  ...  The resulting interpretive framework has no measurement problem and can be used to analyze in quantum terms what is going on before, after, and during physical preparation and measurement processes.  ...  Sources and information In Sec. 4.2 of his [9] Timpson asserts that he can make a "perfectly precise and adequate definition of quantum information" based upon coding ideas.  ...
