Researchers show that quantum computers can reason
Quantum computers can learn to reason even when overloaded with uncertainty and incomplete data, concludes a team of scientists from UK-based quantum software developer Cambridge Quantum Computing (CQC).
This ability is similar to spontaneous human reasoning, which allows people to draw conclusions and make decisions despite the lack of complete information. CQC research confirms the belief of many scientists that there is a natural tendency for logic in quantum computers.
In an article published on the AXIV Open Access Science Archives, CQC scientists explained how they developed methods to demonstrate how quantum machines can learn hidden information from ordinary probabilistic logic models. If iterative, these methods can improve broader applications of quantum computing, including medical diagnostics, fault detection in critical machines, and financial forecasting for investment management.
Conventional computers are capable of helping with certain tasks, but require an extremely high amount of time-consuming calculations, data, power, and grateful appreciation. CQC team member Matthias Rosenkranz wrote in the medium that despite all the problems, conventional computers “still cannot provide simple explanations for their responses and conflicts when asked how badly they are. are sure of the possible results “. “These problems become particularly serious when a decision is the result of multiple yes / no consequences.”
Overall, it’s not like you can go to Best Buy today and buy a quantum computer. They are not yet ubiquitous. IBM apparently collects quantum computers like Jerry Seinfeld collects classic and rare cars. Big Blue is also installing a quantum computer at the Cleveland Clinic, the first private sector beneficiary of IBM Quantum System One.
But the time of quantum computing is very close to that of the Sun.
Stephen Ibaraki, president and general partner of REDDS Capital, wrote in Forbes: “Quantum computing (QC) proof of concept (POC) has evolved with pilot building in 2021 and widespread adoption by 2025”. “Adept in my daily engagements with global communities – CEOs, computer science/engineering organization, United Nations, investment, innovation hub – I see almost 50% of companies applying for quality control in five years, but most don’t. are not fully understood. ”
IBM was not the only major tech company to develop quantum computing technology. Google announced in 2019 that it had designed a machine of quantum supremacy capable of calculating in 200 seconds what the company estimated would take 10,000 years for a conventional computer. Amazon, Intel, Honeywell, Microsoft, and many other vendors (as well as the Chinese nation) are trying to take the QC train.
The only thing with all of this is that quantum computers don’t use the same logic as classical computers. This requires changes in the way the code is required to run them. The CQC team created two algorithms that allow variant invariance (a machine learning method that approximates probability densities in quantum computers).
Ibaraki expects a “proven commercialization” of quantum computing within a decade. Most likely, the people who deploy commercial quantum computing deployments are the leaders in POCs: artificial intelligence and machine learning, financial services, healthcare, IT, materials science, energy, science, and transportation/logistics.
