In this work we revisit and expand on a 2015 study that used a D-Wave quantum annealer as a sampling engine to assist in the training of a Deep Neural Network. The original 2015 results were reproduced using more recent D-Wave hardware. We systematically compare this quantum-assisted training method to a wider range of classical techniques, including: Contrastive Divergence with a different choice of optimizer; Contrastive Divergence with an increased number of steps (CD-k); and Simulated…

Application of Quantum Annealing to Training of Deep Neural Networks

This work investigated an alternative approach that estimates model expectations of Restricted Boltzmann Machines using samples from a D-Wave quantum annealing machine, and found that the quantum sampling- based training approach achieves comparable or better accuracy with significantly fewer iterations of generative training than conventional CD-based training.

Estimation of effective temperatures in quantum annealers for sampling applications: A case study with possible applications in deep learning

A systematic study assessing the impact of the effective temperatures in the learning of a special class of a restricted Boltzmann machine embedded on quantum hardware, which can serve as a building block for deep-learning architectures.

Tomography and generative training with quantum Boltzmann machines

It is demonstrated that quantum Boltzmann machines enable a form of quantum state tomography that not only estimates a state but provides a prescription for generating copies of the reconstructed state as well as evidence that quantum models outperform their classical counterparts.

Quantum deep learning

It is shown that quantum computing not only reduces the time required to train a deep restricted Boltzmann machine, but also provides a richer and more comprehensive framework for deep learning than classical computing and leads to significant improvements in the optimization of the underlying objective function.

Quantum Boltzmann Machine

This work proposes a new machine learning approach based on quantum Boltzmann distribution of a transverse-field Ising Hamiltonian that allows the QBM efficiently by sampling and discusses the possibility of using quantum annealing processors like D-Wave for QBM training and application.

Quantum annealing in the transverse Ising model

We introduce quantum fluctuations into the simulated annealing process of optimization problems, aiming at faster convergence to the optimal state. Quantum fluctuations cause transitions between

Searching for quantum speedup in quasistatic quantum annealers

We argue that a quantum annealer at very long annealing times is likely to experience a quasistatic evolution, returning a final population that is close to a Boltzmann distribution of the

Quantum annealing with manufactured spins

This programmable artificial spin network bridges the gap between the theoretical study of ideal isolated spin networks and the experimental investigation of bulk magnetic samples, and may provide a practical physical means to implement a quantum algorithm, possibly allowing more-effective approaches to solving certain classes of hard combinatorial optimization problems.

Determination and correction of persistent biases in quantum annealers

This work developed a strategy to determine and correct persistent, systematic biases between the actual values of the programmable parameters and their user-specified values and shows that the recalibration procedure not only reduces the magnitudes of the biases in theprogrammable parameters but also enhances the performance of the device on a set of random benchmark instances.

Mastering the game of Go with deep neural networks and tree search

Using this search algorithm, the program AlphaGo achieved a 99.8% winning rate against other Go programs, and defeated the human European Go champion by 5 games to 0.5, the first time that a computer program has defeated a human professional player in the full-sized game of Go.
