The paper reports a method for compressed representation of matrix data on the principles of quantum theory. The method is formalized as complex-valued matrix factorization based on standard singular value decomposition. The developed approach establishes a bridge between standard methods of semantic data analysis and quantum models of cognition and decision. According to the quantum theory, real-valued observable quantities are generated by wavefunctions being complex-valued vectors in multidimensional Hilbert-space. Wavefunctions are defined as superpositions of basis vectors encoding composition of semantic factors. Basis vectors are found by singular value decomposition of the initial data matrix transformed to a real-valued amplitude form. Phase-dependent superposition amplitudes are found to optimize approximation of the source data. The resulting model represents the observed real-valued data as generated from a small number of basis wavefunctions superposed with complex-valued coefficients. The method is tested for random matrices of sizes from 3 × 3 to 12 × 12 and dimensionality of latent Hilbert-space from 2 to 4. The best approximation is achieved by encoding latent factors in normalized complex-valued amplitude vectors interpreted as wavefunctions generating the data. In terms of approximation fitness, the developed method surpasses standard truncated SVD of the same dimensionality. The mean advantage over the considered range of parameters is 22 %. The method permits cognitive interpretation in accord with the existing quantum models of cognition and decision. The method can be integrated in the algorithms of semantic data analysis including natural language processing. In these tasks, the obtained improvement of approximation translates to the increased precision of similarity measures, principal component analysis, advantage in classification, and document ranking methods. Integration with quantum models of cognition and decision is expected to boost methods of artificial intelligence and machine learning improving imitation of natural thinking.
