Processing images in entangled quantum systems

Processing images in entangled quantum systems We introduce a novel method for storing and retrieving binary geometrical shapes in quantum mechanical systems. In contrast to standard procedures in classical computer science in which image reconstruction requires not only the storage of light parameters (like light frequency) but also the storage and use of additional information like correlation and pixel spatial disposition, we show that the employment of maximally entangled qubits allows to reconstruct images without using any additional information. Moreover, we provide a concrete application of our proposal in the field of image recognition and briefly explore potential experimental realizations.

Abstract

We introduce a novel method for storing and retrieving binary geometrical shapes in quantum mechanical systems. In contrast to standard procedures in classical computer science in which image reconstruction requires not only the storage of light parameters (like light frequency) but also the storage and use of additional information like correlation and pixel spatial disposition, we show that the employment of maximally entangled qubits allows to reconstruct images without using any additional information. Moreover, we provide a concrete application of our proposal in the field of image recognition and briefly explore potential experimental realizations. Our proposal could be employed to enable emergent quantum technology to be used in high-impact scientific disciplines in which extensive use of image processing is made.
