Quantum Architecture Search via Deep Reinforcement Learning

Recent advances in Quantum Computing have drawn considerable attention to building realistic application for and using quantum computers. However, designing a suitable quantum circuit architecture requires expert knowledge. For example, it is non-trivial to design a quantum gate sequence for generating a particular quantum state with as fewer gates as possible. A team of researchers […]

Linear Ascending Metrological Algorithm

A research team around Quantum tech startup Terra Quantum pushed sensing capacity beyond what has previously been achievable by exploiting quantum resources. Human understanding of the world and our technological progress are often limited by measurement precision. Its novel sensing algorithm, “Linear Ascending Metrological Algorithm”, is a quantum protocol for high-precision magnetic field measurements. The […]

Federated Quantum Machine Learning

Distributed training across several quantum computers could significantly improve the training time and if we could share the learned model, not the data, it could potentially improve the data privacy as the training would happen where the data is located. One of the potential schemes to achieve this property is the Federated Learning (FL), which […]

Nvidia announces its Quantum Stack cuQuantum

Nvidia has just announced at their GTC event about the performance of quantum simulators using the DGX A100 and its own custom-cooked quantum development software stack, called cuQuantum. The thing is, most of the quantum hardware makers have their own tools for quantum circuit simulation. And aside from the commercially available Atos/Bull systems, there are […]
