Quantum artificial life
Just a note to myself to eventually look into the concept of quantum artificial life. Not sure what it really is. Doesn't even have a Wikipedia page yet. And a Google search yields little.
Assuming that it really does have some basis in quantum mechanics, two questions pop up:
- How can you model and "work" with a system at such a small scale that its characteristics are indeterminate.
- In theory, scaling up a quantum-scale system to a macro-scale system means that we flip from that absolute indeterminism to a relative statistical determinism.
