The design of quantum experiments can be challenging for humans. This can be attributed at least in part to counterintuitive quantum phenomena such as superposition or entanglement. In experimental quantum optics, computational and artificial intelligence methods have therefore been introduced to solve the inverse-design problem, which aims to discover tailored quantum experiments with particular desired functionalities. While some computer-designed experiments have been successfully…
