# How Mature is the Tensorflow Quantum Library [closed]

Where does The Tensorflow Quantum ( TFQ ) library fall on it's maturity curve.

In other words can we currently leverage the TFQ library to solve real-world problems? Will we need to wait for a TFQ 2.0?

Does this library, and if not will it ever, have more than just theoretical usefulness?

Will companies be utilizing TFQ to build systems that can help companies in the wild solve a problem faster/better than if they had utilized classical systems?

Tensorflow Quantum White Paper - For Reference

• This question is more about QML than TFQ. If we replace "TFQ" with "QML" then your question makes sense. "Can we currently leverage the QML to solve real-world problems?" "Does QML, and if not will it ever, have more than just theoretical usefulness?" "Will companies be utilizing QML to build systems that can help companies in the wild solve a problem faster/better than if they had utilized classical systems?". We don't know the answers to these questions at the moment. TFQ is a tool we can use to search for quantum advantages in Machine Learning. Apr 14 '20 at 15:38
• This is definitely a valid point. That being said, while I agree for the most part that QML is synonymous with TFQ, TFQ does not fully represent the possibilities for use of Quantum Computing towards ML. Take for example Quantum Annealing which requires a different type of Quantum Computer and is not possible with TFQ. I may be off base. Please feel free to let me know what you think?

• It's true that TFQ only focuses on gate based devices because Google is working on gate-based processors. TFQ is only a month old with only one release(github.com/tensorflow/quantum/releases). So yes, it's immature in the sense that the software hasn't been used long enough. Apr 16 '20 at 1:21

• It would indeed. I'd recommend, if dabacon would be so kind, that he post parts of this as an answer for the other linked question. If it represents a quality answer that covers everything I'll accept it there. Also thank you for the well thought out answer dabacon. I will accept it as the answer for this question. I would like to know more about 'quantum sensor problems' if you have a moment to further explain that? Anyone else please feel free to comment as this is definitely an evolving area of research and will need constant attention. Thanks again! Apr 16 '20 at 15:40
