## Quantum Machine Learning: What Quantum Computing Means to Data Mining

Machine learning has become indispensable in discovering patterns in large data sets, and the theory is at the core of a larger set of tools known as data mining. It is a mature field with an astonishing array of practical applications.

Quantum computing has the potential of taking machine learning to the next level. While hardware implementations of quantum computing systems are still in an initial phase, recent theoretical developments hint at the benefits of applying quantum methods to learning algorithms.

Computational complexity can be reduced exponentially in some cases, whereas we see quadratic reduction in others. Yet, improved learning time is just one part of the equation. Through nonconvex objective functions, quantum machine learning algorithms are more robust to noise and outliers, which makes their generalization performance better than many known classical algorithms. Examples include quantum support vector machines, learning a function by quantum process tomography, quantum neural networks, and adiabatic quantum optimization.

Quantum Machine Learning: What Quantum Computing Means to Data Mining explains the most relevant concepts of machine learning, quantum mechanics, and quantum information theory, and contrasts classical learning algorithms to their quantum counterparts.
