Quantum Robotics, Neural Networks and the Quantum Force Interpretation

Carlos Pedro Gonçalves


A future quantum technological infrastructure demands the development of quantum cyber-physical-cognitive systems, merging quantum artificial intelligence, quantum robotics and quantum information and communication technologies. To support such a development, the current work introduces a new interpretation of quantum mechanics, grounded on a link between quantum computer science, systems science and field-based computation. This new interpretation is applied to quantum artificial neural networks, with examples implemented experimentally on IBM’s five qubit transmon bowtie chip, accessed via cloud using IBM Q Experience, illustrating how quantum neural computing can be implemented on actual quantum computers. A new form of quantum neural machine learning, based on a quantum optimization of a conditional utility function is also introduced and applied to quantum robotics, where a quantum robot, characterized by an interface and a multilayer quantum artificial neural network, interacts with a quantum target, changing the target’s dynamics adaptively, based upon the quantum optimization dynamics, computing the optima for a performance measure and changing the target’s dynamics accordingly.
