  title={Parametrized Quantum Circuits of Synonymous Sentences in Quantum Natural Language Processing},
  author={Mina Abbas-zadeh and Seyed S. Mousavi and V. Salari},
In this paper we develop a compositional vector-based semantics of positive transitive sentences in quantum natural language processing for a non-English language, i.e. Persian, to compare the parametrised quantum circuits of two synonymous sentences in two languages, English and Persian. By considering grammar+meaning of a transitive sentence, we translateDisCoCat diagram via ZX-calculus into quantum circuit form. Also, we use a bigraph method to rewrite DisCoCat diagram and turn into… 
Comparing in context: Improving cosine similarity measures with a metric tensor
This paper uses the dataset of Richie et al. (2020) to learn contextualized metrics and compares the results with the baseline values obtained using the standard cosine similarity measure, which consistently shows improvement.


Quantum Natural Language Processing on Near-Term Quantum Computers
This work presents a method for mapping DisCoCat diagrams to quantum circuits, compatible both with NISQ devices and with established Quantum Machine Learning techniques, paving the way to near-term applications of quantum technology to natural language processing.
Foundations for Near-Term Quantum Natural Language Processing
The encoding of linguistic structure within quantum circuits also embodies a novel approach for establishing word-meanings that goes beyond the current standards in mainstream AI, by placing linguistic structure at the heart of Wittgenstein's meaning-is-context.
A hybrid classical-quantum workflow for natural language processing
This manuscript develops a hybrid workflow for representing small and large scale corpus data sets to be encoded, processed, and decoded using a quantum circuit model and provides the results showing the efficacy of the method.

This paper focuses on quantum information protocols, which exploit quantum-mechanical effects in an essential way and form the basis for novel and potentially very important applications to secure and fault-tolerant communication and computation.
Picturing Quantum Processes: A First Course in Quantum Theory and Diagrammatic Reasoning
This entirely diagrammatic presentation of quantum theory represents the culmination of ten years of research, uniting classical techniques in linear algebra and Hilbert spaces with cutting-edge developments in quantum computation and foundations.
Quantum picturalism
Why did it take us 50 years since the birth of the quantum mechanical formalism to discover that unknown quantum states cannot be cloned? Yet, the proof of the ‘no-cloning theorem’ is easy, and its
Interacting Quantum Observables: Categorical Algebra and Diagrammatics
The ZX-calculus is introduced, an intuitive and universal graphical calculus for multi-qubit systems, which greatly simplifies derivations in the area of quantum computation and information and axiomatize phase shifts within this framework.
Applying Distributional Compositional Categorical Models of Meaning to Language Translation
This paper will use vector space distributional compositional categorical models of meaning to compare the meaning of sentences in Irish and in English and outline a procedure which translates nouns by understanding their context, using a conceptual space model of cognition.
The Frobenius anatomy of word meanings I: subject and object relative pronouns
Frobenius algebras are used to formalise the operations required to model the semantics of relative pronouns, including passing information between the relative clause and the modified noun phrase, as well as copying, combining, and discarding parts of therelative clause.
Experimental Support for a Categorical Compositional Distributional Model of Meaning
The abstract categorical model of Coecke et al. (2010) is implemented using data from the BNC and evaluated, with general improvement in results with increase in syntactic complexity showcasing the compositional power of the model.
