The human (and animal) brain implements quantum computation for that it was shaped through evolutionary processes within a microscopic world where quantum physics applies and is efficient : True / False / Other from BG will end on 01/12/2020 13h56

> Hypotheses within the domain...

No validation method was proposed.

BG (Leader of 'True') has the opinion that True because Yes, this should lead to the development of a new field: quantum neurosciences (17/12/2017 13h59)

BG (Leader of 'True') says The brain has evolved according to the rules of natural selection, which are based on optimizing the trade-off between efficiency and complexity. Because of its structure, it is based on neurochemistry, which makes it sensitive to the fundamental laws of quantum physics. The latter make it possible to account for microscopic phenomena (atomic, molecular) and less well for macroscopic phenomena. As a result, the brain has evolved in a quantum environment by nature. As a result, it is natural to be interested in the possible implementation in the cognitive processes of quantum phenomena. Without going so far as to think that consciousness is of this nature as Penrose or Eccles defend it, one can make the hypothesis that quantum computations can here and there be used in our brain. When will we see the development of quantum neuroscience research? (17/12/2017 14h09)

and other writings (17/12/2017 14h55)

BG (Leader of 'True') says Thanks, Loomyer for that. I have found a comment about it... but it appears quite controversial! The claim in the present hypothesis is that quantum computation occurs in the brain, but I was not aware that some argued for some kind of quantum evolution mechanism... It is an interesting idea to imagine the quantum influence on the evolution mechanisms per se. But how could this work when the organism is multicellular and lives for years? (26/12/2017 10h02)

BG (Leader of 'True') says Very interesting article : Jedlicka, P. (2017). Revisiting the Quantum Brain Hypothesis: Toward Quantum (Neuro)biology? Frontiers in Molecular Neuroscience, 10, 366. (04/06/2018 18h57)

Top-10 Hypotheses closest to deadline

1. Computer sciences will be able to conceive an artificial intelligence that has a IQ above 200? 10 day(s)

2. Cryogenic conservation of tissues: Radiofrequency inductive heating of iron nanoparticles may allow tissue warming without damage, a step toward cryogenic sleep 106 day(s)

3. Writing the statements (verbal utterances) of a virtual agent (in academic research and industry) will require the experience and skills of new professionals 296 day(s)

4. To emerge the phenomenon of consciousness relies on quantum physics specifically, i.e. theories that do not involve quantum phenomenon cannot account for all mind-matter relationships. 413 day(s)

5. Global warming and technological singularity theory : global warming threats will be significantly reduced by the use of artificial intelligence allowing to overcome Human's limited capability to find successful solutions? 435 day(s)

6. Artificial intelligence: the development of AI decision and the possibility given to AIs to hold properties will lead to the dispossession by humans of any forms of belongings 444 day(s)

7. New futurology will be based on "panoptic" multiple hypothesis sets rather than on unique and isolated predictions on the future 625 day(s)

8. One of the following vocal assistant will be the first computer program to pass the Turing test without any human help. 656 day(s)

9. Singularities: Among these potential major changes which one will occur the first? 656 day(s)

10. New frontiers: when will the first human consciousness make a travel into a non biological substratum (i.e. artificial neural networks, computers, or quantum computers)? 686 day(s)
