Concluding Remarks

  • Vicente Moret-Bonillo


Some of the relevant characteristics of both artificial intelligence and quantum computing are discussed in order to explore the possibility of a meaningful cooperation between these two computer science fields, although it is recognized that many fundamental questions need to be answered before researchers and engineers can combine artificial intelligence and quantum computing. We briefly describe the behavior of the biological brain in terms of what makes it so efficient, mentioning some well-established artificial intelligence approaches that mimic the biological brain and paying particular attention to speed and energy consumption. We continue with a discussion about what can be expected from cooperation between the apparently unconnected artificial intelligence and quantum computing fields. Finally, we reflect on some issues raised in the book, leaving an open door for further reflection on this new paradigm of computing.
