Quantum technologies can be designed more efficiently if they can be trained in self-improvement. A team of researchers in Singapore and China, including Jayne Thompson, who recently joined Horizon Quantum Computing as a Technical Product Manager after doing research for Centre for Quantum Technologies, have demonstrated this potential through engineering a new method to machine learn quantum-enhanced probes for precision sensing applications.
