The Banff International Research Station will host the "New Developments in Quantum Machine Learning" workshop in Banff from July 12 to July 17, 2020.

Quantum machine learning lies at the intersection of artificial intelligence, quantum computing, quantum information theory, quantum many-body physics, statistics, operations research, optimization, and control theory. The seminal works in this area showed exponentially faster learning protocols, limits on the learnable class functions as bound by quantum physics, and advantages in robustness in quantum control.

The workshop will gather specialists from the various disciplines involved. The goal of the workshop is to quickly review the latest progress in the field in a few invited talks, and to facilitate interactions between scientists normally working in their own silos.

The Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) is a collaborative Canada-US-Mexico venture that provides an environment for creative interaction as well as the exchange of ideas, knowledge, and methods within the Mathematical Sciences, with related disciplines and with industry. The research station is located at The Banff Centre in Alberta and is supported by Canada's Natural Science and Engineering Research Council (NSERC), the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF), Alberta's Advanced Education and Technology, and Mexico's Consejo Nacional de Ciencia y Tecnología (CONACYT).
