ABSTRACT: Once introduced the fundamental ideas of quantum computing, we will discuss the possibilities offered by quantum computers in machine learning. BIO: Davide Pastorello obtained an M.Sc. in Physics (2011) and a Ph.D. in Mathematics (2014) from Trento University. After serving at the Dept. of Mathematics and DISI in Trento, he is currently an assistant professor at the Dept. of Mathematics, University of Bologna. His main research interests concern the mathematical aspects of quantum information theory, quantum computing, and quantum machine learning.
