To what extent can quantum computers help to develop Artificial Intelligence?

Quantum computers are super awesome at matrix multiplication, with some limitations. Quantum superposition allows each bit to be in a lot more states than just zero or one, and quantum gates can ...

To what extent can quantum computers help to develop Artificial Intelligence?

Until we can make a quantum computer with a lot more qubits, the potential to further develop AI will remain just that. D-Wave (which has just made a 2,000+ qubit system around 2015) is an adiabatic ...

Is AlphaFold just making a good estimate of the protein structure?

AlphaFold (version 1 and 2) predicts (so estimates) the 3D shape of the protein from the sequence of amino acids. AlphaFold's performance is measured with the global distance test (GDT), which is a ...

What are the challenges for recognising the handwritten characters?

Handwritten digit recognition is a standard benchmark in Machine Learning in the form of the MNIST dataset. For example, scikit-learn, a python package for Machine Learning uses it as a tutorial ...

To what extent can quantum computers help to develop Artificial Intelligence?

Quantum computers can help further develop A.I. algorithms and solve the problems to the extent of our creativity and ability to define the problem. For example breaking cryptography can take seconds, ...

Are there any novel quantum machine learning algorithms that are fundamentally different from "classical" ones?

Generally, if one googles "quantum machine learning" or anything similar the general gist of the results is that quantum computing will greatly speed up the learning process of our "...

Are there any agents that are based on quantum computing?

I think you are looking for quantum machine learning (QML), which is a relatively new field that sits at the intersection of quantum computing and machine learning. If you are not familiar with ...

Does a quantum computer resolve the halting problem and would that advance strong AI?

No, quantum computers (as understood by mainstream scientists) cannot solve the halting problem. We can already simulate quantum circuits with normal computers; it just takes a really long time when ...

Does a quantum computer resolve the halting problem and would that advance strong AI?

It depends a bit on what you mean by 'quantum computer'. The 'conventional' notion is that quantum computation buys a (in some cases, exponential) speedup - it doesn't change what can be computed, ...

What is the difference between machine learning and quantum machine learning?

The difference is much simpler than you might have anticipated: In the quantum computing community, machine learning algorithms designed to be used on quantum computers as opposed to classical ...

To what extent can quantum computers help to develop Artificial Intelligence?

I would say that the answer to your question, is yes. I could write a short book on the subject (that might be a good idea actually) but I will keep this response brief, although I am happy to answer ...

To what extent can quantum computers help to develop Artificial Intelligence?

Direct Answer to Your Question:-- The field where quantum computing and A.I. intersect is called quantum machine learning. A.I. is a developing field, with some background (ala McCarthy of LISP fame)....
