New Idea For Doing Back-Propagation On a Quantum Computer

Filed under: Uncategorized — rrtucci @ 2:13 am

This weekend, I wrote a short article entitled: “Calculating the Gradient of a Cost Function for a Parametric Quantum Circuit in FIVE EASY PIECES” and I filed it in Qubiter’s repo. The article introduces some new ideas that I think might be very useful to the Hybrid Quantum Classical Programme. (Notice British/French spelling of last word for added allure) Check it out! The 1970’s movie “Five Easy Pieces”, featuring the scary Jack Nicholson, has some cosmic connection to my article, I think.

  1. I should mention that currently Rigetti Pyquil and Google Cirq only have Rx, Ry, Rz. They don’t have R along an arbitrary axis. But IBM qiskit does support R along arbitrary axis
