Some of the conference slides as well as videos of talks can be found in the Presentations link.

QI’16 followed previous successful meetings at Stanford University, Oxford University, the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence at Saarbrücken, the AAAI Symposium at Washington DC; Robert Gordon University Aberdeen, the Paris School of Economics, the University of Leicester, and the Conference Center Lihn. More information about the topics of these conferences can be found here.

Over the years, the Quantum Interaction conferences have provided a debating ground for applications of formal concepts of quantum theory to a variety of areas outside of the natural remit of physics. Quantum Interaction has developed into an emerging interdisciplinary area of science combining research topics in mathematics, physics, psychology, economics, cognitive and computer science. These include:

  • novel aspects of decision making in a variety of social science fields,
  • a better understanding of order effects in surveys and questionnaires,
  • studies of non-separable concept combinations in natural language,
  • information retrieval and semantic networks in computer science,
  • proposals to test temporal nonlocality in perception and cognition,
  • study of non-commutative structures in learning behavior.

This year, we we had a special session on Contextuality and Foundations of Probability
