Reinforcement learning for quantum technologies — •Florian Marquardt — Max Planck Institute for the Science of Light and Friedrich-Alexander Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg, Erlangen, Germany
Complex quantum devices require sophisticated control. Discovering such control strategies from scratch with the help of machine learning will enable us to keep pace with the ever-increasing demands encountered when scaling up quantum computers. In this talk, I will describe how the field of reinforcement learning can deliver on this promise. I will present examples ranging from the optimization of quantum circuits to the model-based discovery of better quantum feedback strategies. Moreover, in a recent collaboration with our experimental colleagues, we could show how to train a novel latency-optimized neural network by reinforcement learning in an experiment, acting on a superconducting qubit in cycles of less than one microsecond.
