# Quantum Discriminator for Binary Classification

@article{Date2020QuantumDF, title={Quantum Discriminator for Binary Classification}, author={Prasanna Date}, journal={ArXiv}, year={2020}, volume={abs/2009.01235} }

Quantum computers operate in the high-dimensional tensor product spaces and are known to outperform classical computers on many problems. They are poised to accelerate machine learning tasks in the future. In this work, we operate in the quantum machine learning (QML) regime where a QML model is trained using a quantum-classical hybrid algorithm and inferencing is performed using a quantum algorithm. We leverage the traditional two-step machine learning workflow, where features are extracted…
