In this talk, we’ll learn the basics of generative machine learning, quantum computing, and how the two come together.
Ever wondered how quantum computers work, and how do they do machine learning? With quantum computing technologies nearing the ear of commercialization and quantum advantage, machine learning has been proposed as one of the most promising applications. One of the areas in which quantum computing is showing great potential is in generative models in unsupervised and semi-supervised learning.
Luis Serrano is a Quantum AI Research Scientist at Zapata Computing and the author of the book Grokking Machine Learning. Luis also maintains a popular YouTube channel where he explains machine learning in pedestrian terms (https://serrano.academy). Luis has previously worked in machine learning at Apple and Google, and at Udacity as the head of content for AI and data science. He has a PhD in mathematics from the University of Michigan, a master’s and bachelors from the University of Waterloo, and he has taught at Quest University and the University of Quebec at Montreal.
