The mission of the Center for Molecular Quantum Transduction (CMQT) is to develop the fundamental scientific understanding needed to carry out quantum-to-quantum transduction through a bottom-up synthetic approach, which imparts atomistic precision to quantum systems.

Guest Speaker: Dr. Sabre Kais, Department of Chemistry - Purdue University
Lecture Title: Quantum Machine-Learning for Complex Many-Body Systems on Quantum Devices
Description: This talk will focus on quantum machine learning, particularly the Restricted Boltzmann Machine, as it emerged to be a promising alternative approach leveraging the power of quantum computers. The workhorse of the technique is a shallow neural network encoding the desired state of the system with the amplitude computed by sampling the Gibbs−Boltzmann distribution using a quantum circuit and the phase information obtained classically from the nonlinear activation of a separate set of neurons. In Addition to present successful applications for electronic structure of materials Dr. Kais will discuss the training dynamics by unraveling how quantum information is scrambled through such a network introducing correlation among its constituent sub-systems.
