Non-Classical Connectionist Models of Visual Object Recognition

It is with great interest that we read the article by Tay et al. on face recognition with quantum associative networks, which was recently published in Cognitive Computation . In a series of computer simulations, the authors demonstrated how non-Turing-based quantum computing can be harnessed for viewpoint-invariant face recognition using Hebb-like storage of image-encoding Gabor wavelets implemented in a quantum-holographic procedure. The presented model was largely motivated by Hopfield’s neural network , which was then transformed into a quantum-holographic process in which the Hebbian memory was replaced by multiple self-interferences of quantum plane waves .
