Abstract
The case for utilizing quantum circuits for supervised learning is generally derived from accessing the exponentially large Hilbert space dimension that computation with qubits yields. It is hoped that encoding data into this space may yield advantages in classification margins previously unreachable by classical methods if the feature map used is hard to simulate classically. We discuss two classification algorithms, namely quantum neural networks and quantum kernel methods, both of which utilize a classical optimization routine. We introduce a novel gradient estimator (GSPSA) suitable for implementation on NISQ devices and show its advantages over SPSA which is popular in the literature. Moreover, we explore the idea of deriving a gram matrix for support vector machines via a quantum feature map encoding, the problems associated with the exponential scaling of Hilbert space, and how one can overcome them with projected quantum kernels.
