Quantum Computers

#0.4 Artificial Consciousness << Back

Our knowledge in the field of computing is extremely limited. We currently employ bits (0/1) at the core of our computers. Dealing with concurrency related issues is a major challenge while representing algorithms. Coming to think of it, the Turing machine itself is a deterministic, single-threaded machine. Can such algorithms ever account for, represent and eventually take the place of the human mind?

The suggestion that our mind is a quantum computer is not new. Obviously, to state that it is ‘just’ a quantum computer would be an oversimplification. But all the clues point us towards this line of thought.

Free will – a result of, or another name for, the popping of wave functions inside the natural quantum computer? All in all, we will need another theory of computation to account for the human mind.
