  • Host: MPQ, Theory Division
In the last few years there has been an increasing interest in the potential of quantum improvements in machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI).

In this talk, I will present an overview of some of the recent results in this field, but also in the `dual’ discipline, which focuses on the utility of ML/AI techniques when applied to quantum mechanics problems. Following this, I will focus on the research of our group in Innsbruck, which addresses both sides of this coin, primarily through the study of the physics-oriented Projective Simulation model for AI. In the end, I will introduce some of our most recent results which concern provable quantum improvements in learning from quantum-accessible task environments.
