here is a short list of the more recent investigations in
Development of the "Theory of Universal Lexicons" and its possible applications
in various fields like compression
and alternative hybrid models of computation as in the following where an attempt is made to merge analog and digital models towards an
All Optical Computer
The Symbolic Transform
for Image Compression and Classification. The purpose
would be to be able to categorize faces or other objects
by a bunch of unique complex vectors. Other interesting
properties of this indexing scheme are currently under investigation.

Exploding Wires under extreme power - low energy electrical pulses and the

At the theoretical domain I am particularly interested in the possible
algorithmic equivalence between physical processes and programs as
proclaimed by the
Fredkin-Zuse Hypothesis of Digital Mechanics.
