A Quantum Leap to Advances in Pattern Recognition
No discussion of advances in pattern recognition, robotics, etc. in the new millennium can be divorced from the quantum future of computing. The central problem is the ever increasing appetite(of real time pattern recognition, computer vision and image processing, robotics etc) for real time processing of real complexity in the three dimensional real world. This is pushing current technology ever smaller to where the classical modes of computation break down; due to cross-talk for example. Here the silicon superhighway ends in the apparently alien quantum world and a new millennium crisis begins!
By starting now, however, this impending crisis can be turned into a great opportunity. An understanding of what is quantum computationally possible! Of how the appetite for real time processing of real complexity in the three dimensional real world can be achieved. A practical achievement for which we are ourselves, in the case of pattern recognition, a living existence proof. Is this quantum computational future, therefore, one where the brain/organism is the role model for the computer/robot and not vice versa? Where, intelligence is real and not artificial? A future with an understanding from nature of what information -meaning- truly is? Where, at last, knowledge is directly captured and processed? A future where, mankind has access to all the keys to the computational kingdom? A pattern processing theory, quantum holography, describing existing magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machines and a valid premise, for which evidence is already accumulating, are advanced that it is!
