      Applications of Quantum Computing: Quantum Machine Learning, Optimization and CERN use-cases 1h 30m

      This talk introduces the fundamental concepts of quantum machine learning (QML). In the realm of parametrised quantum circuits, embedding of classical data and parameter optimization methods as part of the general data processing pipeline for quantum networks are being discussed. Furthermore, possible advantages and challenges in the QML domain are considered and the presentation concludes with examples of CERN specific use-cases.


      Carla is a theoretical physicist specializing in quantum computing and quantum algorithms. With a master's degree from ETH Zurich, Carla is currently pursuing a Ph.D. at CERN with TUM, focusing on quantum algorithms for combinatorial problems and efficient classical simulability of quantum circuits.

      Quantum Kernel Methods (hands-on on Quask) 1h 30m


      In this introduction to the foundations of quantum machine learning, we will dive into key concepts such as data encoding, feature map selection, and the comparison of different metrics for quantum kernel estimation. By the end of the session, students should be able to understand the basic steps and considerations in implementing and assessing quantum algorithms for machine learning.
