Leadership from Inner Being: Overcoming the Blind Spots
Sri Amit Ray explains the concept of leadership from inner being. He also describes how to overcome the blind spots in leadership and decision making processes.
Leadership begins with a simple human gesture and that is to inspire others, and to inspire others you must feel integrated, harmonious and whole. When you are disconnected with your Inner Being, you don't feel solid and whole in yourself. When you are connected with your Inner Being, you feel integrated, harmonious and whole.
Here, by inner dimensions I mean inner strength, inner vision - the expanded consciousness beyond the small ego which considers him or her self separate from the rest. On the Physical body level we have emotional blockages. When you are connected with your Inner Being, you feel integrated, harmonious and whole. When you operate from your Inner Being you can overcome the mundane emotional blockages that drags you down. Through meditation, mindfulness and positive mindset we can get connection with our Inner Being. Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King are the examples of leadership from Inner Being.
Authentic Leadership and Inner Dimensions:
We can consistently inspire others when we are authentic - authentic to ourselves and authentic to others. Authenticity is the single most important principle of leadership. Authenticity comes from our deeper inner dimensions. It comes from our core values, principles, and life experiences.
To be a good leader you must be authentic to your current state of development as well as to your potential state of development. In cryptography, authenticity means messages that received by A are actually sent by B - there is no noise, error or loss of information. In leadership, authenticity means what you think, what you say and what you do are in harmony. There should not be any contradiction, confusion or doubt. Today's best leaders are authentic leaders. They are connected with their inner being, which guides them in their daily actions and enables them to earn the trust of their subordinates, peers, and shareholders.Read more ..
Stress Relief and Heart Rate Variability with Om Meditation
Sri Amit Ray explains how om meditation and Om chanting is related to heart rate variability and stress relief.
Your heart rate is constantly changing to meet various requirements of your body and mind. Heart Rate Variability (HRV) measures how your heart rate varies over time. Generally, heart rate variability increases during relaxation and recovering activities and decreases during stress and anxiety. HRV reflects the changes in the interval between heartbeats (R wave) over time.
Broadly speaking there are seven types of Om meditation. The impact of these meditations on stress level varies from person to person. HRV measurement just after different Om meditations can help you to assess the impact of your personalized meditation techniques on stress relief.
Due to advancement of new sensor technologies, smartphone apps, and accessibility to high-quality wearable technology, you can measure your Heart Rate Variability (HRV) at your home and easily monitor your stress level and study the impact of Om chanting or Om meditation and other personalized meditation practices at your own, without referring to any complicated research articles.
Generally, higher fitness levels results in increased HRV and lower fitness levels results in decreased HRV. High HRV is normally viewed as an indicator of a healthy heart. HRV is commonly higher when your heart is beating slowly with in-built relaxation. HRV decreases as your heart beats more quickly. HRV decreases under conditions of acute time pressure and emotional strain and elevated state of anxiety, mostly related to focused attention.
Day-to-day normal level of stress is fine, but chronic stress is dangerous. If you become stressed and don’t sleep well in the night, you may see your HRV values are gradually lowering. Higher HRV is associated with stronger vagus nerve function, lower chronic stress levels, better overall health, and improved cognition.
Heart rate is the number of heartbeats per minute, while heart rate variability (HRV) is the fluctuation in the time intervals between the heartbeats. HRV measures beat-to-beat variability over a wide range of time. HRV gives better understanding about how much time our body needs to get back to normal state after an intense work activities or stress. HRV is a measure of our resilience.
Stress, HRV and OM Chanting
Excessive uncertainty and ambiguity in modern first-living life style leads to excessive stress. Om meditation is an easy way to transform the stress energy into positive life force. We will discuss here, the science behind these ancient and secret meditation techniques.Read more ..
Om Chanting for Discovering the Kingdom of God Within You
Sri Amit Ray talks about accessing the kingdom of God that is within you, in the light of Om chanting and Om meditation.
The kingdom of God is a metaphor - metaphor of transformation into more creative, more conscious, more caring, loving and fulfilling life with the fellow beings. It talks about the higher inner dimensions of human soul. It is about discovering the inner treasures like: inner strength, adaptability, acceptability, resilience, forgiveness, and caring power that is within us. Om chanting and Om meditation has tremendous power to activate these inner powers. Om chanting has several benefits and it is an art - a systematic step by step process.
True kingdom is the deep feelings of love with the wholeness or fullness of the world. This kingdom was meant not to be taught, but to be self-discovered. It is about realizing and unfolding our best inner qualities for the service of the humanity and the environment where we live. The essence of the kingdom is transformation that would happen inside us and within the world where we live. Rather than being imposed from the outside, it all about remaking ourselves for betterment from the inside. God will bring heaven to earth only when our love for all beings are complete and genuine.
Om meditations can make you more focused, caring, strong, and decisive. It can give you strong inner strength, which inspire people to follow you because you will become more courageous, confident, clear minded, big hearted, and big thinker. By practicing Om chanting, you will be able to face the tough questions and challenges of life more smoothly and efficiently. The seven dimensions of inner power through Om chanting are as follows:Read more ..
Shreya vs Preya: The Art of Happy Living
Here, Sri Amit Ray talks about the wisdom of "shreya vs preya" - the art of happy living in the path of long term fulfillment versus short term pleasure. He explains how skillful behavior patterns can directed us towards Shreya, which brings joy, happiness, love and trust in life.
Our true nature is divine and eternal. Our true purpose of life is to awaken and realize that permanent divinity that is within us. However, in human life there are positive emotions like: joy, trust, happiness and love. There are negative emotions like: anger, fear, anxiety, depression, worry, grief and mistrust. Life is a dynamics of these two types of emotions. How to find the higher purpose and true meanings of life in the midst of these negative turmoils of life is the eternal question.
Seven Scientific Benefits of Om Chanting
Here, Sri Amit Ray explains the key scientific benefits of om chanting.
Om chanting is a disciplined and flexible process to remove tension, anxiety, fear, depressions, and negativity from life. It can bring positivity to your life like courage, focus, concentration, happiness, and joy, effortlessly. It can improve your state (short term) as well as trait (long term) health, happiness, joy and well-being.
Om chanting is a series of step-by-step process. It is a scientific art but it should be learnt properly to get its benefits. Systematic guided Om chanting can change your emotional reactions and responses to external stimuli and internal experiences in a positive way. It can enhance your efficiency, calmness, tranquility, and mental clarity.
Dr. Ray explains how low frequency Om chanting can reduce our daily stress, strain, anxiety and tensions. Om chanting is effective for stress management. Under various pressure conditions such as before examination, before public speaking, before important sports events and during critical challenges of life Om chanting can enhance confidence and eliminate stress and anxiety. Om chanting improves the connections between the amygdala and prefrontal cortex, which is the key component for relaxation, stress control and better decision making.
Low frequency seven step deep Om chanting increases gamma wave in the brain. The gamma brain waves are known as “feeling of blessings”. The seven step deep Om chanting and meditation is supposed to be practiced for 20 minutes, two times per day. Dopamine, Oxytocin, Serotonin and Endorphins are the four key hormones generated in the body during low frequency Om meditation and these four hormones have huge impact on regulating both state anxiety as well as trait anxiety.
7 Steps to Build Inner Strength and Resilience
Sri Amit Ray explains the seven ways to build inner strength and resilience.
Inner strength and resilience are the two key components to face and transform every challenges of life. Good inner strength will give you self-confidence. It also gives you determination, tolerance, satisfaction and energy. Life throws challenges but with patience and resilience you can convert every challenge into new opportunity to grow. Having a resilient spirit becomes an asset.
1. Identify your True Purpose of Life
God has given you many gifts - but in some areas you are very very special. Identify those special areas where you can grow, contribute and get maximum satisfaction of life. If you can't find your purpose at some point of life, life will throw you challenges - and you need to convert those challenges into opportunities. When you set your purpose properly, you will activate more positive energies, gain better balance.
2. Focus and Hard work
With focus and hard work, anything is possible. Small things matter - your daily exercise, your values, your food habits and thinking patterns can make difference. Positive people are able to recognize that problems are not obstacles that get in the way but are new opportunities for creativity and problem solving. Every moment is a new moment to rise up and move forward into the victory.
Time management is vital for success. Make to do list and isolate top three items in the list and give them priority to complete. If you have too many people and too many friends, you will be obstructed in your focus. Focus and concentration are essential for inner strength. Don't allow life to overflow with unnecessary activities.Read more ..
Upanishadic Meditation and Quantum Consciousness Online Class
Upanishads are the most ancient literature of meditations. They are considered as the most important literature in the history of Indian religions, spirituality and culture. The objective of this class is to spread the TRUE teachings of the Upanishads in it's purity beyond the traditional views of Vedanta in a simple straightforward way.
This online class is a guided meditation class, based on the ancient pure teachings of Upanishads in the light of modern science. This meditation program is an adventure into the deeper aspects of your consciousness. You will learn life-positive teachings and practices to integrate them in your daily life for spiritual awakening, peace of mind and stress free living. You will also learn to access quantum consciousness for manifestation of positive things in your life.
In this meditation practices, you will learn to align yourself with your Higher Self. Each of us is an endowment of wisdom, love, intuition, peace, and a sense of purpose, which can become a source of guidance in everyday life. In Upanishads, this higher aspect is sometimes called the Atman or the “inner light of universal truth.” Our Higher-Self loves us unconditionally, totally, completely and without exception. Your Higher Self knows you more intimately than you know yourself. When you align yourself with the Higher Self , you will become more relaxed, fulfilled, happy and creative. You will learn how to connect with your Higher Self.
Who Am I meditation is the journey to realize the pure Cosmic Self. Many people think, who Am I meditation is just chanting the mantra "I am not the mind", "I am not the body". But in reality it is far away from that. Here, Sri Amit Ray explains the steps of Who Am I meditation. He explained the steps, pitfalls and destination of Who Am I meditation.
Who AM I meditation is a way of penetrating and exploring the inner realms so as to achieve silence, spiritual wisdom and communion with the higher Self. It is a way to move into the inner world. The self can be realized by the Self alone with pure intention, love and intellect. Who AM I meditation is gradual process of dis-identifying from your body, mind, and the feelings. The Who Am I meditations has seven steps to settle your mind in peace and realize the deeper Divine Self.
Rediscover Your True Self - Transform the Darkness into Light
You are, inherently, whole and pure. Stress, strain, conflict, and other hurtful experiences may have covered your naturally intact core, but you can recover it. You can work from your inner resources and uncover your true Self and you can transform your darkness into light. Dr. Amit Ray here explains the power of Cosmic Self meditation for higher alignment with the pure Cosmic Self for happy and fulfilling life.
Power of Self-completing:
Self-completing means finding the light within and thereby aligning with the cosmic light. Meditation on cosmic Self, is the best way to align with the cosmos. Individual self is incomplete without its deep connection with the cosmic Self. Our Cosmic Self meditation techniques aim to reunify the individual with cosmos. Fulfillment comes when you free yourself from the artifices and regain original naturalness.
Once you rediscover your simplest and purest Self, your operations within the material world become effortless. You become harmonize with the cosmos.
Union with the cosmic Self
Union with the cosmic Self is not reserved for an elite of spiritual seekers. You don't need to renounce the worldly life and isolating into unnecessary complexity. Self-completion lies right in front of your nose. The attitude with which you carry out your activities in daily life can turn anything from serving tea to sweeping the yard, into an act of fulfillment. Recognizing the presence of cosmic Self in everything, and operating in consciousness with this realization, is the essence of our cosmic Self meditation. You will realize that you are complete as you experience the present moment. Who Am I meditation is a special seven step technique to realize the cosmic Self.
Connecting the Energy Points with the Cosmos
The internal meditation process requires a firing process, which consists of moving vital energy through the human energetic metabolism. You energy points are distributed across the body some are blocked and some are open. There are 114 energy points and 72000 energy channels in human body. There are energy points under the soles of the feet, in the palms of the hands, and at the crown of the head. They serve to expel old vital energy, and absorb fresh refined energy into the body. A human being is healthy when pure vital energy runs fluidly through all energetic structures. Vital energy flow supplies the body and its organs with balanced sun and moon energies. “As within, so without” applies to everything, because everything is informed by the same underlying Truth.
It is a cosmic dance." -- Amit Ray
Viraja River is a spiritual concept of ancient India. Sri Amit Ray explained how one can transcended the flow of time or arrow of time and enter into the zone of timelessness. He explained it, in the light of modern spirituality and modern quantum physics and modern cosmology.
From my childhood, I hard many stories about the Viraja River. My mother use to say, if one's mind is in perfect equilibrium and emerged into the deep cosmic God consciousness, one would cross the Viraja river even while living in this world. Later I realized the Viraja river can be crossed in deep samadhi especially through deep Om viraja kriya meditation. Through special deep meditation Om Prana Kriya and Om Viraja Kriya meditation one can cross the cosmic mystical Viraja River.
Modern Physics and the Viraja River
Recently, I was reading some articles on how quantum computing can reverse the arrow of time published in the Journal of Physical Review. Viraja River is the ancient concept of Timeless Universe. The researchers of the quantum physics said that the the arrow of time is not an absolute concept; it strongly depends on the choice of initial conditions — so it’s relative. Viraja River is the river of timelessness because time does not exist at the other bank of the cosmic river.
Modern physics suggests that we can look at the entire history of the universe as a single four-dimensional thing. If you were to stand outside the universe—outside both space and time—and look at your own life, you would see your birth, your death and every moment in between laid out as distinct points. From this angle, time does not flow, but is static and fixed.
Viraja River is the boundary between the material dimension of time and the spiritual dimension of timelessness. In deep meditation or after death the souls that exist on the material side of the Viraja are eternally conditioned, and the souls on the spiritual side are eternally liberated. Crossing Viraja river is going outside both time and space. On the other side of the Viraja river is the zone of eternal bliss and light.Read more ..
The 10 Properties of Quantum Machine Learning
Dr. Amit Ray, Compassionate AI Lab
In this article, we discussed the 10 properties and characteristics of hybrid classical-quantum machine learning approaches for our Compassionate AI Lab projects. Quantum computers with the power of machine learning will disrupt every industry. They will change the way we live in this world and the way we fight diseases, care for old people and blind people, invent new medicines and new materials, and solve health, climate and social issues. Similar to the 10 V's of big data we have identified 10 M's of quantum machine learning (QML). These 10 properties of quantum machine learning can be argued, debated and fine tuned for further refinements.
The field of hybrid classical-quantum machine learning has been maturing rapidly with the availability of the prototype universal gate-model quantum processors of IBM, Google, and Rigetti as well as more sophisticated quantum annealers of D-Wave systems. Moreover, the availability of various high-performance computing (HPC) simulation of quantum circuits facilities improving the possibilities of exploring the power of QML in various application areas. Quantum hardware dedicated to machine learning are also becoming reality. They too can provide much faster processing power than a general-purpose quantum computer.
The compassionate AI lab is currently developing a hybrid classical-quantum machine learning (HQML) framework - a quantum computing virtual plugin to build a bridge between the available quantum computing facilities with the classical machine learning software like Tensor flow, Scikit-learn, Keras, XGBoost, LightGBM, and cuDNN.
Presently the hybrid classical-quantum machine learning (HQML) framework includes the quantum learning algorithms like: Quantum Neural Networks, Quantum Boltzmann Machine, Quantum Principal Component Analysis, Quantum k-means algorithm, Quantum k-medians algorithm, Quantum Bayesian Networks and Quantum Support Vector Machines.
The heart of quantum machine learning (QML) is the quantum mechanical properties like superposition, interference, tunneling, entanglement, measurement, coherence and many-body localization. Theoretically sub-atomic particles can be located in a potentially unlimited number of places at once, and to behave in a potentially unlimited number of different ways. Quantum computer promises to take advantage of a sub-atomic particle's ability to be in a superposition of states to produce prodigiously increased power and speed of calculations.
Interference is the mechanism by which a hypothetical quantum computer would combine its multiple calculations into one answer. With the advent of the uncertainty principle, particles could no longer be said to have separate, well-defined positions and velocities, but only a quantum state, a combination of position and velocity.
Schrodinger equation, is the cornerstone of quantum mechanics in describing how quantum states evolve. Schrodinger equation also supports the idea of superposition - particles exist in a "probability cloud" sate. Max Born, interpret the wave as the probability. It is proportional to the square of the probability amplitude of the wave function. Given a wave function ψ, the probability density function p(x,y,z) for a measurement of the position at time t0 will be given by p(x,y,z) = |ψ(x,y,z,t0)|2. Born’s rule connects quantum theory to experiments and measurements.
Any attempt to measure or obtain knowledge of quantum superposition by the outside world, the wave-function will collapse. Measurement causes them to decoherence, effectively destroying the superposition and reducing it to a single location or state, and also destroying the ability of its individual states to interfere with each other. Decoherence, results in the collapse of the quantum wave function and the settling of a particle into its observed state under classical physics.
Quantum entanglement is the basis of the quantum parallelism. If you perform an operation on one element of the entangled pair, it will automatically impact the other one. Nonlocality occurs due to the phenomenon of entanglement, whereby particles that interact with each other become permanently correlated, or dependent on each other’s states and properties, to the extent that they effectively lose their individuality and in many ways behave as a single entity. Through cluster qubits and entanglement swapping techniques individual ions, the carriers of the qubits are deterministically entangled and separated.
Quantum Artificial Intelligence Modules
Primarily, there are two types of quantum processing: 1) Gate model universal quantum processing and 2) Quantum Annealing processing. Both of them have their own advantages and limitations. Quantum machine learning can be implemented on both of them. HHL algorithm, quantum Fourier transform algorithm, variational quantum eigensolvers, quantum minimization algorithm, quantum phase estimation, quantum walk and Grover's search algorithms are the key technologies for quantum machine learning.
Machine learning (ML) is dynamic and does not require human intervention to make certain changes. Machine learning programs, in a sense, adjust themselves in response to the data they’re exposed to. The “learning” part of machine learning means that ML algorithms attempt to optimize some objective functions along a certain dimension. They usually try to minimize error or maximize the likelihood of their predictions being true.
In a simplistic way a machine learning is just solving multivariate optimization problems. Hence, theoretically quantum annealing and adiabatic quantum computing is most suitable for that. However, human intelligence is much more than that. We have classified quantum artificial intelligence in four groups: shallow quantum intelligence, deep quantum intelligence and quantum creative or abstract intelligence. Shallow quantum intelligence primarily focused on traditional machine learning techniques like: supervised learning, unsupervised learning and reinforcement learning. The deep quantum intelligence modules focused on multi-agent, multi-domain intelligence, explanation engine and symbolic intelligence. Our quantum abstract intelligence focuses on mimicking the out of the box thinking and creative aspects of human intelligence.
Five Key Benefits of Quantum Machine Learning
Here, Dr. Amit Ray discusses the five key benefits of quantum machine learning.
Quantum machine learning is evolving very fast and gaining enormous momentum due to its huge potential. Quantum machine learning is the key technology for future compassionate artificial intelligence. In our Compassionate AI Lab, we have conducted several experiments on quantum machine learning in the areas of drug-discovery, combating antibiotic resistance bacteria, and multi-omics data integration.
We have realized that in the area of drug design and multi-omics data integration, the power of deep learning is very much restricted in classical computer. Hence, with limited facilities, we have conducted many hybrid classical-quantum machine learning algorithm testing at our Compassionate AI Lab.
What is holding back the large scale implementation of machine learning systems in healthcare and precision medicine? In this article Dr. Amit Ray, explains the key obstacles and challenges of implementing large-scale machine learning systems in healthcare. Dr. Ray argued that lack of deeper integration, incomplete understanding of the underlying molecular processes of disease it is intended to treat, may limit the progress of implementing large-scale machine learning based reliable systems in healthcare. Here, nine obstacles of present day machine learning systems in healthcare are discussed.
Recently, machine learning algorithms, especially deep learning has shown impressive performance in many areas of medical science, especially in classifying imaging data in different clinical domains. In academic environment, Deep learning and Reinforcement learning methods of Artificial Intelligence (AI) has shown tremendous success in numerous clinical areas such as: Omics data integration (such as genomics, proteomics or metabolomics), prediction of drug-disease correlation based on gene expression, and finding combinations of drugs that should not be taken together. Deep learning is very successful in predicting cancer outcome based on tumour tissue images. Machine learning are used for medical decision support systems for ICU and critical care. Artificial Intelligence in Healthcare Current Trends discusses the current status of AI in healthcare.Read more ..
How many qubits are needed to out-perform conventional computers, how to protect a quantum computer from the effects of decoherence and how to design more than 1000 qubits fault-tolerant large scale quantum computers, these are the three basic questions we want to deal in this article. Qubit technologies, qubit quality, qubit count, qubit connectivity and qubit architectures are the five key areas of quantum computing are discussed.
Earlier we have discussed 7 Core Qubit Technologies for Quantum Computing, 7 Key Requirements for Quantum Computing. Spin-orbit Coupling Qubits for Quantum Computing and AI, Quantum Computing Algorithms for Artificial Intelligence, Quantum Computing and Artificial Intelligence , Quantum Computing with Many World Interpretation Scopes and Challenges and Quantum Computer with Superconductivity at Room Temperature. Here, we will focus on practical issues related to designing large-scale quantum computers.
Instead of running on zeros and ones, quantum computers run on an infinite number of states between zero and one. Instead of performing one calculation before moving on to the next, quantum computers can manage multiple processes all simultaneously.
Unlike binary bits of information in ordinary computers, “qubits” consist of quantum particles that have some probability of being in each of two states, represent as |0⟩ and |1⟩, simultaneously. When qubits interact, their possible states become interdependent (entangled), each one’s chances of |0⟩ and |1⟩ hinging on those of the other. Moreover, quantum information does not have to be encoded into binary bits, it could also be encoded into continuous observables bits (qubits).
The speed requirements for various applications grows with the complexity of the problems and the speed advantage of quantum computers are enormous compare to classical computers. The key to quantum computation speed is that every additional qubit doubles the potential computing power of a quantum machine.
The objective of 1000 qubits fault-tolerant quantum computing is to compute accurately even when gates have a high probability of error each time they are used. Theoretically, accurate quantum computing is possible with error probabilities above 3% per gate, which is significantly high. The resources required for quantum computing depends on the error probabilities of the gates. It is possible to implement non-trivial quantum computations at error probabilities as high as 1% per gate.Read more ..
Quantum Computing with Many World Interpretation Scopes and Challenges
Many scientist believe that Many World Interpretation (MWI) of quantum mechanics is self-evidently absurd for quantum computing. However, recently, there are many groups of scientist increasingly believing that MWI has the real future in quantum computing, because MWI can provide true quantum parallelism. Here, I briefly discuss the scopes and challenges of MWI for future quantum computing for exploration into the deeper aspects of qubits and quantum computing with MWI.
The heart of Copenhagen interpretation based quantum computing is wave function collapse. However, the Copenhagen interpretation fails to specify precisely where and how the collapses occurs and is therefore an imprecise theory. Moreover, the exact collapse mechanism is not scientifically well defined. But the beauty of Copenhagen interpretation is that "it works" and it makes no unnecessary assumptions. According to the Copenhagen interpretation there is no "game" only the result is real - the physical reality is a result of the collapse of the wave function as a “local” manifestation of the non-local wave-function. However, wave function collapse is widely regarded as artificial and adhoc.
On the other hand, MWI removed the wave function collapse theory and focused on quantum parallelism thesis (QPT). It states that none of the quantum states vanishes at all, except to our perception. It says, in essence, let’s just do away with wave function collapse altogether. The entire universe (all the universes together) is described by a gigantic wave function that contains within it all possible realities. This wave function is known as “universal wave function”. The universe is a single reality. It hypothesized that, at the quantum level, whenever the universe is confronted with a choice of paths, reality splits into branches and both choices or paths happen simultaneously.
This tutorial is for the researchers, volunteers and students of the Compassionate AI Lab for understanding the deeper aspects of quantum computing for implementing large-scale compassionate artificial intelligence projects.
Quantum Computer with Superconductivity at Room Temperature
Quantum computer with superconductivity at room temperature is going to change the landscape of artificial intelligence. In the earlier article we have discussed quantum computing algorithms for artificial intelligence. In this article we reviewed the implication of superconductivity at room temperature on quantum computation and its impact on artificial intelligence.
Long coherence time (synchronized), low error rate and high scalability are the three prime requirements for quantum computing. To overcome these problems, presently, quantum computer needs complex infrastructure involving high-cooling and ultra-high vacuum. This is to keep atomic movement close to zero and contain the entangled particles, both of which reduce the likelihood of decoherence. The availability of superconductivity at room temperature will provide the quantum jump in quantum computer.
Quantum Computing Algorithms for Artificial Intelligence
Dr. Amit Ray explains the quantum annealing, Quantum Monte Carlo Tree Search, Quantum algorithms for traveling salesman problems, and Quantum algorithms for gradient descent problems in depth.

This article is to explain the foundation quantum computing algorithms in depth in a simplistic way. Here we explained the concepts of quantum annealing, Quantum Monte Carlo Tree Search, quantum algorithms for traveling salesman problem and Quantum algorithms for gradient descent problems.Read more ..
Artificial Intelligence to Combat Antibiotic Resistant Bacteria
Antibiotic resistance bacteria is one of the key research area of our Compassionate AI Lab. Dr. Amit Ray explains how artificial intelligence can be used in combating these superbugs. Antibiotic resistance bacteria is becoming world’s biggest health crisis. We discussed here multi-agent deep reinforcement learning models for predicting behavior of bacteria and phages in multi-drug environments. We call this model as DeepCombat.
Antibiotic resistant bacteria are bacteria that are not controlled or killed by antibiotics. They are able to survive and even multiply in the presence of an antibiotic. These bacteria currently kill an estimated 700,000 people globally each year – a death toll which could rise to 10 million a year by 2050 if we don’t act . The main difficulty is that the bacteria are changing fast. They changing faster than we can change the drugs in response.
Artificial intelligence is showing alternative means of fighting these deadly infections and killer bacteria. Multi-drug-resistant bacterial infections annually result in millions of hospital days, billions in healthcare costs, and, most importantly, thousands of lives lost. Artificial Intelligence for healthcare is progressing at an exponential rate. We are evaluating here, the role of artificial intelligence in fighting these superbugs. Especially, the use of AI for intelligent Phage therapy.Read more ..

Brain-Computer Interface and Compassionate AI
The purpose of Compassionate AI is to remove the pain from the society and help humanity. Artificial Intelligence with Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) or Brain Machine Interface (BMI) is a fast-growing emerging technology for removing pains from the society. Here, Dr. Amit Ray explains how with the advancement of artificial intelligence and exploration of new mobile bio-monitoring devices, earphones, neuroprosthetic, wireless wearable sensors, it is possible to monitor thoughts and activities of brain neurons and serve humanity.
This research is going to be immensely beneficial for the physically and mentally challenged people as well as for the people who are suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and other mental disorders or brain problems. Over the last 5 years, technologies for non-invasive transmission of information from brains to computers have developed considerably.
Here, researchers focus to build a direct communication link between the human brain and the smartphones, earphone, computers or other devices. With BCI mind can speak silently with a smartphone or other devices. Recent advancement of neuroprosthetic, linking the human nervous system to computers and providing unprecedented control of artificial limbs and restoring lost sensory function.
BCI establishes two way communications between the brain and the machine. One is brain-computer interface and another is called computer-brain interfaces (CBI). BCI hopes to create new communication channels for disabled or elderly persons using their brain signals.Read more ..
