AI model uses quantum maths to learn like a human

Could the next big breakthrough in machine learning come from the world of finance?

Two hedge fund quants say they have built a machine learning model that — like humans — is able to learn broad ideas from small amounts of data.

Kharen Musaelian and Dario Villani – co-founders of artificial intelligence hedge fund Duality Group, and recipients of Risk’s 2016 Buy-side quants of the year award – say that by using the maths of quantum mechanics to encode data in a richer form, they have created a model with the capacity for abstraction and analogy that might unlock true quantum
