Quantum informatics (QI) is an emerging branch of quantum information science, and has recently been applied to challenging computational and modeling problems in artificial intelligence. While the application areas addressed typically operate at a macroscopic scale and could not be considered quantum in a quantum mechanical sense, they may share many key properties with quantum systems including nonmeasurability, nondeterminism, collapse, nonseparability, contextuality, use of symbolic calculus, and harmonic oscillations. This symposium features papers by researchers interested in how QI interfaces with or can be applied directly to solve problems with AI in nonquantum domains more efficiently or to address previously unsolved problems with AI in these other fields.
