            Nice one!

            It reminds me of the “overfitting” a cappella from some years ago: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=DQWI1kvmwRg

              on a high level, can someone explain me the potential of lambeq to challenge existing transformer architectures and other LLM architectures at some point? I’d assume that would be the ultimate goal, right? How is it similar and how is it different?

                Abstract: We show a polynomial time quantum algorithm for solving the learning with errors problem (LWE) with certain polynomial modulus-noise ratios. Combining with the reductions from lattice problems to LWE shown by Regev [J.ACM 2009], we obtain polynomial time quantum algorithms for solving the decisional shortest vector problem (GapSVP) and the shortest independent vector problem (SIVP) for all n-dimensional lattices within approximation factors of Ω( ˜ n 4.5 ). Previously, no polynomial or even subexponential time quantum algorithms were known for solving GapSVP or SIVP for all lattices within any polynomial approximation factors. To develop a quantum algorithm for solving LWE, we mainly introduce two new techniques. First, we introduce Gaussian functions with complex variances in the design of quantum algorithms. In particular, we exploit the feature of the Karst wave in the discrete Fourier transform of complex Gaussian functions. Second, we use windowed quantum Fourier transform with complex Gaussian windows, which allows us to combine the information from both time and frequency domains. Using those techniques, we first convert the LWE instance into quantum states with purely imaginary Gaussian amplitudes, then convert purely imaginary Gaussian states into classical linear equations over the LWE secret and error terms, and finally solve the linear system of equations using Gaussian elimination. This gives a polynomial time quantum algorithm for solving LWE.

                          VeriQloud is a company specializing in designing network hardware and software for cybersecurity. The solutions we develop span different time horizons. In particular, several of our projects are related to the issue of accessing quantum computing resources remotely, and specifically the security issues raised by this setup Even today, executing quantum algorithms in the cloud is largely limited due to the sensitivity of the data used. One solution to this problem is blind quantum computing, which allows delegating an encrypted version of the program to be executed to a remote operator, thus preserving the security of the data being processed. VeriQloud has been involved in several projects related to implementing this technique in a real-world environment, with the necessary adaptations from theory to practice.

                                      Abstract: Quantum machine learning models have shown successful generalization performance even when trained with few data. In this work, through systematic randomization experiments, we show that traditional approaches to understanding generalization fail to explain the behavior of such quantum models. Our experiments reveal that state-of-the-art quantum neural networks accurately fit random states and random labeling of training data. This ability to memorize random data defies current notions of small generalization error, problematizing approaches that build on complexity measures such as the VC dimension, the Rademacher complexity, and all their uniform relatives. We complement our empirical results with a theoretical construction showing that quantum neural networks can fit arbitrary labels to quantum states, hinting at their memorization ability. Our results do not preclude the possibility of good generalization with few training data but rather rule out any possible guarantees based only on the properties of the model family. These findings expose a fundamental challenge in the conventional understanding of generalization in quantum machine learning and highlight the need for a paradigm shift in the study of quantum models for machine learning tasks.

                                        haha, true! I wonder if there has been any follow-up on this given some popularity around “quantum games” in the form of quantum chess and quantum tic tac toe some years ago

                                          Well, also scientists have to advertise and sell their work apparently…

                                          Seems magic can be measured in terms of Stabilizer Rényi entropy 🪄
