Because QA4ML users have to view a non-trivial amount of data and perform many input actions to correct errors made by the ML model, an optimally-designed user interface (UI) can reduce the cost of interactions significantly.

This paper is a `spiritual child' of the 2005 lecture notes Kindergarten Quantum Mechanics, which showed how a simple, pictorial extension of Dirac notation allowed several quantum features to be easily expressed and derived, using language even a kindergartner can understand.

While in DisCoCat all meanings are fixed as states (i. e. have no input), in DisCoCirc word meanings correspond to a type, or system, and the states of this system can evolve.

Categorical compositional distributional semantics provide a method to derive the meaning of a sentence from the meaning of its individual words: the grammatical reduction of a sentence automatically induces a linear map for composing the word vectors obtained from distributional semantics.

We put forward a new take on the logic of quantum mechanics, following Schroedinger's point of view that it is composition which makes quantum theory what it is, rather than its particular propositional structure due to the existence of superpositions, as proposed by Birkhoff and von Neumann.
