Quantum Conformal Prediction for Reliable Uncertainty Quantification in Quantum Machine Learning

Quantum machine learning is a promising programming paradigm for the optimization of quantum algorithms in the current era of noisy intermediate-scale quantum computers. A fundamental challenge in quantum machine learning is generalization, as the designer targets performance under testing conditions while having access only to limited training data. Existing generalization analyses, while identifying important general […]

Quantum Approximate Bayesian Optimization Algorithms With Two Mixers and Uncertainty Quantification

The searching efficiency of the quantum approximate optimization algorithm is dependent on both the classical and quantum sides of the algorithm. Recently, a quantum approximate Bayesian optimization algorithm (QABOA) that includes two mixers was developed, where surrogate-based Bayesian optimization is applied to improve the sampling efficiency of the classical optimizer. A continuous-time quantum walk mixer […]
