quantum associative memory, linear integrated optics, neural network
This paper discusses the realization of a quantum associative memory using linear integrated optics. An associative memory produces a full pattern of bits when presented with only a partial pattern. Quantum computers have the potential to store large numbers of patterns and hence have the ability to far surpass any classical neural network realization of an associative memory. In this work two 3-qubit associative memories will be discussed using linear integrated optics. In addition, corrupted, invented and degenerate memories are discussed.
