Can Quantum Computers Help with Machine Learning?

Mon Dec 06 05:05 AM -- 05:26 AM (PST) @

This introduction wants to give you an intuition for the main challenge of quantum machine learning: to find out how machine learning could potentially be innovated by technology based on (ever so subtly) different physics principles, if we only have access to small-scale prototypes and mathematical theory. You’ll also learn about two important paradigms in quantum computing, the near-term and fault-tolerant approaches, and about some popular research areas within QML.
