Quipus, Quantum Computers and Enterprise Systems

From Quipus to Quantum Computers to Enterprise Systems
“Time symmetries can be difficult to see directly but can be revealed mathematically by imagining the real-world material as a lower-dimensional projection from a hypothetical higher-dimensional space, similar to how a two-dimensional hologram is a lower-dimensional projection of a three-dimensional object. In the case of this newly created phase, which manifests in a strand of ions (electrically charged atoms), its symmetries can be discerned by considering it as a material that exists in higher-dimensional reality with two time dimensions.”

Here is a wonderful article that equivalences the ancient Inca mathematical calculator – the quipu to formulate a new way quantum computers can be used where the strings are atoms and and the knots are generated by patterns of laser pulses that effectively open up a second dimension of time.

Potter, one of the scientists, likens this vulnerability to conveying a message using pieces of string, with each string arranged in the shape of an individual letter and laid out on the floor. “You could read it fine until a small breeze comes along and blows a letter away,” he says. To create the more error-proof quantum material, Potter’s team looked to topological phases. In a quantum computer that exploits topology, information is not encoded locally in the state of each qubit but is woven across the material globally. “It’s like a knot that’s hard to undo—like quipu,” the Incas’ mechanism for storing census and other data, Potter says.

The effective second time dimension created by the team sneaks round this limitation. “Our one-dimensional system acts like a higher-dimensional system in some ways but without the overhead of making a two-dimensional system,” he says. “It’s the best of both worlds, so you have your cake and you eat it, too.”

Similarly at Numorpho Cybernetic Systems (NUMO), we are devising the Digital Twine, a two dimensional string representation of processes (digital threads) and knots (digital twins) to blueprint activities for automation in the Industry be it manufacturing, infrastructure, transportation or marketing.

Time is the most critical element in the progression of enterprise operations and it is key to have a holistic simplified perspective of all elements so that systems can be integrated appropriately. We call this connecting the dots and it is as pertinent in physics as it is for enterprises. As is aptly stated in the article: “Dynamics with topological protection is a major technological goal.”

Our Digital Twine is modeled after the famous Feynman Diagrams that represent particle interactions in physics. For us it integrates people, process, and platform coordinations in the enterprise. We built out our digital fabric by exploiting the dualities from unrelated fields and utilizing Physmatics in conjunction with AI.NI+IN UCHIL Founder, CEO & Technical Evangelist
