Main Topics of the Conference:

-  quantum theory and quantum measurement approach in  socio-humanitarian studies;

-  probabilistic and  quantum-like models of individual decision making in psychology and social sciences;

-  quantum approaches  to modeling of complex systems in economy and finance;

-  quantum approaches to cognitive computation and artificial intelligence;

-  probabilistic processes for cognitive computing,  

-  quantum and quantum-like simulators and analogue models   in photonics.


Conference sessions:

Quantum cognition is  a cross-disciplinary field of research which seeks to describe cognitive and psychological phenomena in the human system with formalisms and methods of quantum theory. The aim is to found out fundamental similarities in behavior of complicated social  and quantum  systems. Exploration of these analogies allows to obtain new information about the behavior of complex biological and social systems, on the other hand, to use well-developed methods of quantum mechanics, laser physics, and nonlinear dynamics for modeling human and social behavior.

Cognitive computations are newest technologies that partially repeat the features of the human brain and are able to work much more efficiently. It is promising to use  of such systems  in a huge variety of fields and directions, including banking, materials science, business optimization, urban infrastructure management, environmental assessment, research in various fields of science and medicine.  The main task of cognitive technologies is to enable a person to work with unstructured data in a convenient way.

Quantum  machine learning and quantum algorithms  are high performance programing  technologies  for solutions on quantum  (or quantum-like) computers (simulators) complex problems like data search in big data bases, classification etc.  The software for quantum machine learning uses quantum algorithms to process information, that does not available to the "ordinary" classical computer. This opens  entirely new possibilities and prospects in terms of accelerating the solution of computational hard problems that can surpass the most famous classical algorithms used in machine learning.
