Machine-Learning-Based Parameter Estimation of Gaussian Quantum States

In this article, we propose a machine-learning framework for parameter estimation of single-mode Gaussian quantum states. Under a Bayesian framework, our approach estimates parameters of suitable prior distributions from measured data. For phase-space displacement and squeezing parameter estimation, this is achieved by introducing expectation–maximization (EM)-based algorithms, while for phase parameter estimation, an empirical Bayes method […]

New Single-Preparation Methods for Unsupervised Quantum Machine Learning Problems

The term “machine learning” especially refers to algorithms that derive mappings, i.e., input–output transforms, by using numerical data that provide information about considered transforms. These transforms appear in many problems related to classification/clustering, regression, system identification, system inversion, and input signal restoration/separation. We here analyze the connections between all these problems in the classical and […]

On the Experimental Feasibility of Quantum State Reconstruction via Machine Learning

We determine the resource scaling of machine learning-based quantum state reconstruction methods, in terms of inference and training, for systems of up to four qubits when constrained to pure states. Further, we examine system performance in the low-count regime, likely to be encountered in the tomography of high-dimensional systems. Finally, we implement our quantum state […]

Efficient Discrete Feature Encoding for Variational Quantum Classifier

Recent days have witnessed significant interests in applying quantum-enhanced techniques for solving a variety of machine learning tasks. Variational methods that use quantum resources of imperfect quantum devices with the help of classical computing techniques are popular for supervised learning. Variational quantum classification (VQC) is one of such methods with possible quantum advantage in using […]
