Quantum Machine Learning for Health State Diagnosis and Prognostics

08/25/2021 ∙ by Gabriel San Martín, et al. ∙ 0

Quantum computing is a new field that has recently attracted researchers from a broad range of fields due to its representation power, flexibility and promising results in both speed and scalability. Since 2020, laboratories around the globe have started to experiment with models that lie in the juxtaposition between machine learning and quantum computing. The availability of quantum processing units (QPUs) to the general scientific community through open APIs (e.g., Qiskit from IBM) have kindled the interest in developing and testing new approaches to old problems. In this paper, we present a hybrid quantum machine learning framework for health state diagnostics and prognostics. The framework is exemplified using a problem involving ball bearings dataset. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first attempt to harvest and leverage quantum computing to develop and apply a hybrid quantum-classical machine learning approach to a prognostics and health management (PHM) problem. We hope that this paper initiates the exploration and application of quantum machine learning algorithms in areas of risk and reliability.
