In human eyes, retina cells have shown complicated, sophisticated structures, and thus capability of carrying out certain basic visual functions. In computer vision, a spherical model has been proposed to demonstrate that certain basic visual functions can be performed at the sensor/photoreceptor level for target recognition, mobile robotic control, and other applications. This paper will establish that low level computer vision in this spherical model exhibits a Hamiltonian model of quantum computation. This results will be important to the understanding of human vision as well as the development of intelligent visual sensor chips and devices in electronics and optics.
