Quantum Kernels for Real-World Predictions Based on Electronic Health Records

Research on near-term quantum machine learning has explored how classical machine learning algorithms endowed with access to quantum kernels (similarity measures) can outperform their purely classical counterparts. Although theoretical work has shown a provable advantage on synthetic data sets, no work done to date has studied empirically whether the quantum advantage is attainable and with […]

QuantMark: A Benchmarking API for VQE Algorithms

Thanks to the rise of quantum computers, many variations of the variational quantum eigensolver (VQE) have been proposed in recent times. This is a promising development for real quantum algorithms, as the VQE is a promising algorithm that runs on current quantum hardware. However, the popular method of comparing your algorithm versus a classical baseline […]

Quantum Annealing Methods and Experimental Evaluation to the Phase-Unwrapping Problem in Synthetic Aperture Radar Imaging

The focus of this work is to explore the use of quantum annealing solvers for the problem of phase unwrapping of synthetic aperture radar (SAR) images. Although solutions to this problem exist based on network programming, these techniques do not scale well to larger sized images. Our approach involves formulating the problem as a quadratic […]

Experimental Demonstrations of Native Implementation of Boolean Logic Hamiltonian in a Superconducting Quantum Annealer

Experimental demonstrations of quantum annealing with “native” implementation of Boolean logic Hamiltonians are reported. As a superconducting integrated circuit, a problem Hamiltonian whose set of ground states is consistent with a given truth table is implemented for quantum annealing with no redundant qubits. As examples of the truth table, nand and nor are successfully fabricated […]

Fp -Linear and Fpm-Linear Qudit Codes From Dual-Containing Classical Codes

Quantum code construction from two classical codes D1[n,k1,d1] and D2[n,k2,d2] over the field Fpm ( p is prime and m is an integer) satisfying the dual containing criteria D⊥1⊂D2 using the Calderbank–Shor–Steane (CSS) framework is well-studied. We show that the generalization of the CSS framework for qubits to qudits yields two different classes of codes, namely, the Fp -linear CSS codes and the well-known Fpm -linear CSS codes based on the […]

Quantum Attacks on HCTR and Its Variants

Recently, in Asiacrypt 2019, Bonnetain et al. have shown attacks by quantum adversaries on FX construction and Even-Mansour Cipher without using superposition queries to the encryption oracle. In this article, we use a similar approach to mount new attacks on Hash-Counter (HCTR) and Hash-Counter-Hash (HCH) constructions. In addition, we mount attacks on HCTR, tweakable-HCTR, and […]

Improved Gilbert–Varshamov Bound for Entanglement-Assisted Asymmetric Quantum Error Correction by Symplectic Orthogonality

We propose and prove an existential theorem for entanglement-assisted asymmetric quantum error correction. Then, we demonstrate its superiority over the conventional one. For more about this transaction see link below.  https://ieeexplore.ieee.org/document/9076251
