Quantum information technologies, on the one hand, and intelligent learning systems, on the other, are both emergent technologies that are likely to have a transformative impact on our society in the future. The respective underlying fields of basic research—quantum information versus machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI)—have their own specific questions and challenges, which have hitherto been investigated largely independently. However, in a growing body of recent work…

Reinforcement Learning with Neural Networks for Quantum Feedback

TLDR
This work shows how a network-based "agent" can discover complete quantum-error-correction strategies, protecting a collection of qubits against noise, and develops two ideas: two-stage learning with teacher/student networks and a reward quantifying the capability to recover the quantum information stored in a multi-qubit system.
