[Paper Summary] IBM Researchers propose a Quantum Kernel Algorithm

Many quantum machine learning algorithms have been believed to provide exponential speed-ups over classical machine learning (ML) approaches, based on the assumption that classical data can be provided to the algorithm in the form of quantum states. Yet, no studies show whether a method exists that can efficiently provide data in this manner.

IBM Open Sources ‘CodeFlare’, a Machine Learning Framework that simplifies AI Workflows onto the Hybrid Cloud

Wireframe diagram

IBM has open-sourced CodeFlare, a machine learning framework that will allow developers to train their models more efficiently onto the hybrid cloud. This new framework is an exciting concept for those who are looking to simplify their workflow and shorten the time it takes. The idea behind this design is that when users have 10,000 work pipelines running, they wait up to 4 hours before receiving a result. While using this new framework, its implementation into these machines will require only 15 minutes.
