Quantum Expectation-Maximization Algorithm

19 Aug 2019  ·  Hideyuki Miyahara, Kazuyuki Aihara, Wolfgang Lechner ·

Clustering algorithms are a cornerstone of machine learning applications. Recently, a quantum algorithm for clustering based on the k-means algorithm has been proposed by Kerenidis, Landman, Luongo and Prakash. Based on their work, we propose a quantum expectation-maximization (EM) algorithm for Gaussian mixture models (GMMs). The robustness and quantum speedup of the algorithm is demonstrated. We also show numerically the advantage of GMM over k-means for non-trivial cluster data.
