Artificial Intelligence


The Neural Qubit

Authors: Siraj Raval

Deep learning has resulted in state of the art performance for automated tasks in the fields of natural language processing, computer vision, autonomous driving, and many other sub-fields of Artificial Intelligence. However, if the goal is to create a system that is capable of learning any task, given an objective function, I hypothesis that it’s necessary to reconsider classical neural network architecture to incorporate certain properties of quantum mechanics, namely superposition and entanglement. Building on the work of Fisher [12], I surmise that Phosphorus-31 enables both of these properties to occur within neurons in the human brain. In light of this evidence, quantum information processing in the context of digital neural networks is an area that deserves further exploration. As such, I present a novel quantum neural network architecture, similar to the continuous variable archicteture by Killoran et al. [11] that can accurately predict credit card fraud for a web-based business. My aim is that this will provide a starting point for more research in this space, ultimately using this technology to drive more innovation in every Scientific discipline, from Pharmacology to Computer Science.
