A Special Issue in Soft ComputingOpen to submissions until September 30, 2021
At present, the computational demands for solving complex problems in the computational intelligence area involve big data sets and massive and sophisticated learning structures that use neurons, fuzzy logic, and single and multiple optimization algorithms, frequently combined with traditional techniques; consequently, computational tractability is becoming inefficient. There are two emerging fields that will converge in the near future for solving such complex problems; they are quantum computing and deep learning. Quantum computing based on quantum mechanics principles such as superposition of states, interference, entanglement, and others, is expected to provide an exponential speed up. On the other hand, deep learning models allow the understanding of big data sets; lately, deep learning methods have been extended to incorporate other machine learning methods that include reinforcement learning and transfer learning. The aim of this special issue is to analyze the latest theoretical and practical proposals on Quantum Intelligent Systems and Deep Learning for solving diverse scientific and industrial problems. Quantum algorithms of interest are quantum optimization algorithms, quantum neural networks, quantum algorithms for classification, quantum-inspired algorithms in practice, and hybrid quantum-algorithms for quantum computers. Deep learning algorithms of interest are recent advances in transfer learning, dynamic structures of deep learning, theoretical developments on the background of deep learning, and applications in medicine and autonomous vehicles. Proposals that combine quantum algorithms and deep learning of interest are all those that deal with Transfer learning in Hybrid Classical-Quantum Neural Networks and quantum embeddings for machine learning. In the current literature databases, we can find that the interest in combining these two fields is growing very fast; this, together with the fact that quantum computer technology is advancing in leaps and bounds, the interest of searching different kinds of problems that they can solve efficiently has driven the scientific community to research in this field; which will warranty the attention of the scientific community to this special issue.
