Quantum Machine Learning – An Introduction to QGANs

In this contributed article, data scientists from Sigmoid discuss quantum machine learning and provide an introduction to QGANs. Quantum GANs which use a quantum generator or discriminator or both is an algorithm of similar architecture developed to run on Quantum systems. The quantum advantage of various algorithms is impeded by the assumption that data can be loaded to quantum states. However this can be achieved for specific but not generic data.

Cambridge Quantum Computing Pioneers Quantum Machine Learning Methods for Reasoning

Scientists at Cambridge Quantum Computing (CQC) have developed methods and demonstrated that quantum machines can learn to infer hidden information from very general probabilistic reasoning models. These methods could improve a broad range of applications, where reasoning in complex systems and quantifying uncertainty are crucial. Examples include medical diagnosis, fault-detection in mission-critical machines, or financial forecasting for investment management.
