Neuromrophic Quantum Computing

Project description

Neural networks could soon be running on quantum hardware

Artificial neural networks, which simulate the way the human brain analyses and processes information, are used to model complex patterns and prediction problems. This approach typically involves building software rather than creating hardware that mimics neurons. The EU-funded Quromorphic project plans to implement neuromorphic computing on the hardware level. The project aims to build the first dedicated neural network computer that works on quantum mechanics principles. It will be built in hardware made of superconducting electrical circuits. Neuromorphic quantum hardware could possibly outperform classical von Neumann architectures as it can be trained on multiple batches of real-world data in parallel.
