How do we know what a quantum computer is good for when it hasn’t been built yet? That’s what Ph.D. candidate Casper Gyurik investigated by combining two terms you often hear: quantum computing and machine learning.

“I try to improve machine learning techniques using quantum,” states Gyurik. Machine learning is a form of artificial intelligence in which a computer learns by itself. On normal—classical—computers, that is.
Quantum computing, on the other hand, is a groundbreaking new technique for performing computations on a quantum computer. This uses the physics of the smallest particles. ” …
