Quantum Machine Learning and Optimisation in Finance: On the Road to Quantum Advantage

English | 2022 | ISBN: 978-1801813570 | 442 Pages | PDF, EPUB | 22 MB

Learn the principles of quantum machine learning and how to apply them in finance.

Key Features

  • Discover how to solve optimisation problems on quantum computers that can provide a speedup edge over classical methods
  • Use methods of analogue and digital quantum computing to build powerful generative models
  • Create the latest algorithms that work on Noisy Intermediate-Scale Quantum (NISQ) computers

With recent advances in quantum computing technology, we finally reached the era of Noisy Intermediate-Scale Quantum (NISQ) computing. NISQ-era quantum computers are powerful enough to test quantum computing algorithms and solve hard real-world problems faster than classical hardware.

Speedup is so important in financial applications, ranging from analysing huge amounts of customer data to high frequency trading. This is where quantum computing can give you the edge. Quantum Machine Learning and Optimisation in Finance shows you how to create hybrid quantum-classical machine learning and optimisation models that can harness the power of NISQ hardware.

This book will take you through the real-world productive applications of quantum computing. The book explores the main quantum computing algorithms implementable on existing NISQ devices and highlights a range of financial applications that can benefit from this new quantum computing paradigm.

This book will help you be one of the first in the finance industry to use quantum machine learning models to solve classically hard real-world problems. We may have moved past the point of quantum computing supremacy, but our quest for establishing quantum computing advantage has just begun!
