Quantum Machine Learning with SQUID

A team of researchers have presented the Scaled QUantum IDentifier (SQUID), an open-source framework for exploring hybrid Quantum-Classical algorithms for classification problems. The classical infrastructure is based on PyTorch and they provide a standardized design to implement a variety of quantum models with the capability of back-propagation for efficient training. Quantum Machine Learning (QML) is […]

A variational quantum algorithm for deep Q-learning

Research in Quantum Machine Learning (QML) has focused primarily on variational quantum algorithms (VQAs), and several proposals to enhance supervised, unsupervised and reinforcement learning (RL) algorithms with VQAs have been put forward. Out of the three, RL is the least studied and it is still an open question whether VQAs can be competitive with state-of-the-art […]

Team simulates collider physics on quantum computer

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory physicists have leveraged an IBM Q quantum computer through the Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility to capture part of a calculation of two protons colliding. The calculation can show the probability that an outgoing particle will emit additional particles. The researchers used a method called effective field theory to break down their full […]

Making quantum computing more resilient to noise

Researchers at MIT are working to mitigate the noise problem in quantum computing by developing a technique that makes the quantum circuit itself resilient to noise. (Specifically, these are “parameterized” quantum circuits that contain adjustable quantum gates.) The team created a framework that can identify the most robust quantum circuit for a particular computing task […]
