PIRSA:18040082  ( MP4 Medium Res , MP3 , PDF ) Which Format?
Wavefunction branches as a foundation for constructing foil theories
Speaker(s): Jess Riedel
Abstract:

PIRSA:18040084  ( MP4 Medium Res , MP3 , PDF ) Which Format?
Compatibility of implicit and explicit observers in quantum theory and beyond
Speaker(s): Thomas Galley
Abstract: The observer is implicitly present in the measurement postulates of quantum theory. However the observer can also be modeled as a quantum system interacting with other quantum systems. A theory where every action implicitly undertaken by an agent (such as a measurement or preparation) can be explici... read more

PIRSA:18040078  ( MP4 Medium Res , MP3 , PDF ) Which Format?
From observers to physics via algorithmic information theory I
Speaker(s): Markus Mueller
Abstract: Motivated by the conceptual puzzles of quantum theory and related areas of physics, I describe a rigorous and minimal “proof of principle” theory in which observers are fundamental and in which the physical world is a (provably) emergent phenomenon. This is a reversal of the standard view, which... read more

PIRSA:18040089  ( MP4 Medium Res , MP3 , PDF ) Which Format?
Agents, Subsystems, and the Conservation of Information
Speaker(s): Giulio Chiribella
Abstract: Dividing the world into subsystems is an important component of the scientific method. The choice of subsystems, however, is not defined a priori. Typically, it is dictated by our experimental capabilities, and, in general, different agents may have different capabilities. Here we propose a construc... read more
