Exploring the Exponential Advantage of Quantum Computers in Machine Learning

Quantum physics improves machine learning exponentially

Quantum physics can boost machine learning.

Scientists report in Science on June 10, that quantum computers can have a significant advantage when it comes to certain machine-learning tasks. Researchers proved that quantum math dictates the advantage when using machine-learning to understand quantum systems. The team also showed that this advantage held up to real-world testing.

Hsin Yuan Huang, a theoretical physicist at Caltech and a computer scientist, says that people are excited by the possibility of using quantum technologies to improve learning. Quantum physics has been a hot topic in the field of machine learning, but it was not clear whether this would be beneficial to machine learning.
