Army-Funded Academic Research Trials Machine Learning Approach to Correct Quantum Info Errors; Sara Gamble Quoted

Artificial Intelligence

A U.S. Army-supported research team from Louisiana State University has demonstrated the use of machine learning to correct errors found in quantum information systems. The research team tested how a neural network's self-learning and self-evolving functions can correct information used in quantum sensing and communications. This approach is designed to correct the distorted quantum information in photon-composed systems.
