Special Session on Quantum Computational Intelligence

Special Session on Quantum Computational Intelligence

Aims and Scope

Quantum computing is a fascinating research area that merges different disciplines such as computer science, physics, and engineering. Thanks to concepts of superposition and entanglement, quantum computing shows an intrinsic parallelism that represents the crucial key to enable quantum devices to perform more efficiently than their classical counterparts.

Quantum computers will be able to yield performance never seen before in several application domains, and the area of artificial intelligence may be the one most affected by this revolution. Indeed, the intrinsic parallelism provided by quantum computers could support the design of efficient algorithms for artificial intelligence such as, for example, the training algorithms of machine learning models, and bio-inspired optimization algorithms. Moreover, on other point of view, artificial intelligence techniques could be useful to quantum computing to address some problems such as, for example, the not so high reliability of quantum outcomes due to the negative effect of quantum decoherence.

The special session will focus on the current research trends in the integration between quantum computing and computational intelligence techniques.
