The capacity of classical neurocomputers islimited by the number of classical degrees of freedom,which is roughly proportional to the size of thecomputer. By contrast, a hypothetical quantumneurocomputer can implement an exponentially larger number ofthe degrees of freedom within the same size. In thispaper an attempt is made to reconcile the linearreversible structure of quantum evolution with nonlinear irreversible dynamics for neuralnets.

Quantum Neuron: an elementary building block for machine learning on quantum computers
A small quantum circuit is proposed that naturally simulates neurons with threshold activation and defines a building block, the "quantum neuron", that can reproduce a variety of classical neural network constructions while maintaining the ability to process superpositions of inputs and preserve quantum coherence and entanglement.
