Quantum-Inspired Machine Learning (2020–2022)

This project aims to develop new machine learning techniques based around the close correspondence betweennneural networks used in deep learning, and tensor networks used in quantum physics. Tensor networks are a form of information compression that is useful in machine learning to construct a compact representation of a large data set in a way that is more amenable to understanding the internal structure than a deep neural network. Expected outcomes of this project include more resilient algorithms for machine learning, and new ways to represent quantum states that will impact fundamental physics. The resulting benefits include enhanced capacity for cross-discipline collaboration, and improved methods for future industrial applications.n
