A Paradigm Shift. The Role of Quantum Mechanics in Arbitration, Politics, and Defense

For centuries, science has been based on Newtonian laws and the principles of classical physics. In the last decades, this ontology started to be questioned, leading to the rise of quantum mechanics. From theoretical simulations and mathematical experiments, these quantum principles soon extended to computer science. They are working their way into different industries, from manufacturing and chemistry to law, politics, and defense.

Classical mechanics picture the world as a collection of particles that find themselves under the influence of various electromagnetic forces. Repetitive measurements of a particle return similar results, and macroscopic phenomena are explained based on the properties of the microscopic level. Because of its simplicity and apparent consistency, this paradigm has been reinforced and has prevailed through time [1]. However, technological advancements have allowed scientists to observe and verify various phenomena that behave differently, giving rise to a vast array of experiments and applications [2].

“We currently live in a world in which the old Newtonian principles (cause-effect relationships) are no longer valid. The science stopped advancing, and the only way the society can move forward and progress is by implementing metaphysical postulates [3].”

A dedicated supporter of this paradigm shift, Amir Vahid founded Eonum, a company based in California that employs quantum principles and harnesses the power of quantum computers to develop solutions for risk management, arbitration, and outcome prediction.

Working on the quantum devices made available by IBM, Amazon Braket, or Stanford, Vahid’s model relies on the analysis of human emotion and considers live data instead of other companies in the field that rely on static information mathematical models to make predictions. According to Vahid, this has the potential to save up to 60% of the client’s litigation cost and predict court outcomes with a 90% accuracy.

“Eonum has a distinctive ability to quantify complex human emotion using quantum field theory to enable high impact decision making.”

Any type of conflict, either between companies, political opponents, or world-powers, involves a high level of uncertainty, emotional volatility, power imbalances, and mysterious information. Eonum’s quantum model aims to make sense of this data, providing their clients with a more realistic assessment of their chances and supporting them in the processes of risk assessment, litigation, or arbitration.

Eonum’s approach does not limit itself to the usage of quantum computers and AI to make sense of data and perform complex computations. The company also employs quantum-based strategies (e.g., social laser [4]) to support their clients to reach their goals. 

“An average lawsuit in the healthcare industry costs around 3 million USD. This is a costly and time-consuming process. Our strategy is to help our clients move towards conflict resolution before reaching court trials by laying out strategies based on quantum principles and computations.”

One of the significant advantages of this model resides in its flexibility. On one hand, the model develops continuously, which allows the prediction to change in real-time, based on the events that take place at that moment. On the other hand, it is scalable and transferable to problems in other areas such as politics and diplomacy.

Quantum computing applications are still in their infancy. Besides the advancements expected on the technical side, a significant change in mentality and the way of thinking is also paramount. Only this way, both academia and industries will bring this field to the next level and prove the universal validity of the dissipative quantum field theory.
