Causality in a Quantum World
A conference organised by the University of Queensland
Novotel Twin Waters Resort, Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia
August 16-21, 2015
There has been much recent interest in the suggestion that quantum mechanics might be better understood in terms of its causal structure. Novel formalism has provided a new perspective on the discrepancy between the causal structure of the classical and quantum worlds. This has significant implications for traditional approaches to the philosophy of causation; for example, that intelligent agents can come to know and control the quantum world in new ways that do not fit the standard formulations of control theory, computer science and artificial learning machines. This conference brings together both physicists and philosophers with an interest in exploring the consequences of this new approach to causality in a quantum world. The conference is part of the research project The Causal Power of Information in a Quantum World.
