Quantum machine learning (QML) is a rapidly growing area of research at the intersection of classical machine learning and quantum information theory. One area of considerable interest is the use of QML to learn information contained within quantum states themselves. In this work, we propose a novel approach in which the extraction of information from quantum states is undertaken in a classical representational-space, obtained through the training of a hybrid quantum autoencoder (HQA). Hence… Expand


Quantum autoencoders for efficient compression of quantum data
Classical autoencoders are neural networks that can learn efficient low-dimensional representations of data in higher-dimensional space. The task of an autoencoder is, given an input x, to map x to aExpand
On exploring practical potentials of quantum auto-encoder with advantages
This work proves that QAE can be used to efficiently calculate the eigenvalues and prepare the corresponding eigenvectors of a high-dimensional quantum state with the low-rank property and proves that the error bounds of the proposed QAE-based methods outperform those in previous literature. Expand
Experimental Realization of a Quantum Autoencoder: The Compression of Qutrits via Machine Learning.
It is demonstrated that when the inherent structure of the dataset allows lossless compression, the autoencoder reduces qutrits to qubits with low error levels and is robust to perturbations during its optimization routine. Expand
Quantum Autoencoders via Quantum Adders with Genetic Algorithms
This work proposes a useful connection between quantum autoencoders and quantum adders, which approximately add two unknown quantum states supported in different quantum systems, and opens a different path for the design of quantum aut Koencoders in controllable quantum platforms. Expand
On compression rate of quantum autoencoders: Control design, numerical and experimental realization
The upper bound of the compression rate is theoretically proven using eigen-decomposition and matrix differentiation, which is determined by the eigenvalues of the density matrix representation of the input states. Expand

PennyLane: Automatic differentiation of hybrid quantum-classical computations
PennyLane's core feature is the ability to compute gradients of variational quantum circuits in a way that is compatible with classical techniques such as backpropagation, and it extends the automatic differentiation algorithms common in optimization and machine learning to include quantum and hybrid computations.

Barren plateaus in quantum neural network training landscapes
It is shown that for a wide class of reasonable parameterized quantum circuits, the probability that the gradient along any reasonable direction is non-zero to some fixed precision is exponentially small as a function of the number of qubits. Expand
