Zoom-Talk: Automated, Systematic, and Optimized Testing of Quantum Programs

Speaker: Shaukat Ali, Simula Research Lab Title:  Automated, Systematic, and Optimized Testing of Quantum Programs Time: May 5, 2021 11:30 AM Oslo Abstract: Quantum programs implement quantum algorithms solving complex computational problems. Testing such programs is challenging due to the inherent characteristics of Quantum Computing (QC), such as the probabilistic nature and computations in superposition. However, automated… Read More »Zoom-Talk: Automated, Systematic, and Optimized Testing of Quantum Programs

Quantum reservoir computing for machine learning

Speaker: Alexander Stasik, Department of Mathematics and Cybernetics, SINTEF Title:  Quantum reservoir computing for machine learning Abstract: Reservoir computing and extreme learning machines are alternative approaches in machine learning. They use a random non-linear system to transform the input and only learn a linear mapping from the system output to the learning targets. This drastically… Read More »Quantum reservoir computing for machine learning
