Today, there is another information processing revolution in its infancy: quantum computing.
These guys have built the world’s first perceptron implemented on a quantum computer and then put it through its paces on some simple image processing tasks.
This is a quantum computer capable of processing five qubits and programmable over the web by anyone who can write a quantum algorithm.
The big advantage of quantum computing is that it allows an exponential increase in the number of dimensions it can process.
While a classical perceptron can process an input of N dimensions, a quantum perceptron can process 2N dimensions.
Future goals will be to encode the equivalent of gray-scale images and to combine quantum perceptrons into many-layered networks.
It’s only a matter of time before quantum perceptrons become much more powerful.
