May 8-10, 2019, at the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Light in Erlangen, Germany
This international workshop covered emerging applications of machine learning to quantum devices, including advanced methods like reinforcement learning.
The workshop was preceded by a two-day school for students trying to enter the field, going from a recap of the basics of neural networks to advanced techniques, May 6-7, 2019.
The 2-day mini-school (Monday/Tuesday) before the workshop, after a brief reminder about the basics, covered somewhat more advanced concepts like recurrent (memory) networks, reinforcement learning, Boltzmann machines, and a brief overview of applications of neural networks in various scientific fields. For more information, have a look at the slides (PDF) for the Tutorials in the School associated with the Workshop Machine Learning for Quantum Technology.
