An Empirical Comparison Of Optimizers For Quantum Machine Learning With SPSA-Based Gradients

Variational quantum algorithms (VQAs) have attracted a lot of attention from the quantum computing community for the last few years. Their hybrid quantum-classical nature with relatively shallow quantum circuits makes them a promising platform for demonstrating the capabilities of noisy intermediate scale quantum (NISQ) devices. Although the classical machine learning community focuses on gradi... » read more

Variational Quantum Algorithms (VQA)

  Abstract "Applications such as simulating large quantum systems or solving large-scale linear algebra problems are immensely challenging for classical computers due their extremely high computational cost. Quantum computers promise to unlock these applications, although fault-tolerant quantum computers will likely not be available for several years. Currently available quantum device... » read more
