Special Session 3: Quantum Deep Learning

In recent years, remarkable breakthroughs have been seen in both deep neural networks and quantum computing. It is an intriguing topic to study the intersection of these two cutting-edge research fields. Quantum neural network (QNN) is one of the most promising directions for finding advantageous applications of near-term quantum computers. However, the advantages of QNN and deep QNN models over classical models remain open questions, which require further study. This session will focus on recent advances in QNN model architectures, programing platforms for developing QNN algorithms, and potential applications of QNN in various learning tasks such as computer vision, finance and weather prediction.

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Search and Optimization of Parameterized Quantum Circuits
  • When AI Meets Quantum Computing
  • Expressivity of Quantum Neural Networks
  • The Programing Platforms for Developing QNN Models
  • Quantum Self-attention Neural Networks
