Questions tagged [neural-network]

Use this tag for questions about possible applications of quantum computing in improving neural network models and/or quantum neural networks. Artificial neural networks (ANNs) or connectionist systems are computing systems vaguely inspired by the biological neural networks that constitute animal brains. Such systems "learn" (i.e. progressively improve performance on) tasks by considering examples, generally without task-specific programming (Wikipedia).

Barren plateaus in quantum neural network training landscapes

Here the authors argue that the efforts of creating a scalable quantum neural network using a set of parameterized gates are deemed to fail for a large number of qubits. This is due to the fact that, ...
