Quantum BC Seminar Series – Roman Krems

November 14 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm


Join us on Tuesday, November 14 at 2pm for a seminar by Dr. Roman Krems from the University of British Columbia. Dr. Krems will speak on the topic  “Can quantum computers enhance machine learning?”

In this talk, I will describe how quantum computing and machine learning
can be combined to solve a machine learning problem that cannot be solved
on a classical computer. This will illustrate the quantum advantage of
quantum machine learning. I will then discuss how to build optimal quantum
machine learning models for practical applications. In particular, I will
show how to increase the complexity of quantum models in order to improve
their ability to infer from limited data. I will conclude by discussing
the title question.
Roman Krems is a Professor of Chemistry and Distinguished University
Scholar at the University of British Columbia. He is also a member of the
computer science department at UBC and a principle investigator at the
Stewart Blusson Quantum Matter Institute. His work is at the intersection
of quantum physics, machine learning and chemistry on problems of
relevance to quantum materials and quantum technologies. He is
particularly excited about applications of machine learning for solving
complex quantum problems and applications of quantum hardware for machine
learning. He is Fellow of the American Physical Society and Member of the
College of the Royal Society of Canada.
