Quantum machine learning is a technology that uses quantum computing to realize machine learning. Its main purpose is to use the advantages of quantum computing to deal with problems that traditional computers can’t handle and improve the efficiency and accuracy of machine learning. The main difference between quantum machine learning and traditional machine learning is that it uses qubits to store and process data instead of classical bits used in traditional machine learning.

The principles of quantum machine learning mainly include quantum data coding, quantum state preparation and quantum algorithm design. Among them, quantum data coding is the process of coding classical data into quantum States, so that the efficiency and accuracy of machine learning can be improved by using the characteristics of superposition and entanglement of quantum States. Preparation of quantum states is a process of putting qubits into the required quantum states. By controlling and operating qubits, the conversion between different quantum states can be realized, thus realizing various algorithms in machine learning. The design of quantum algorithms is the process of designing and implementing quantum algorithms, which can be optimized on quantum computers, thus achieving the purpose of machine learning.
