usingblock. As you note, you can't use measurement to do that in an adjointable operation; given that resetting is a special case of measurement, the
Resetoperation will also fail to preserve adjointability. The trick is that you need to coherently reset the qubit to |0⟩ without measurement. You can do that because you know exactly what state it's in at the end of the
using, and can unprepare it using only unitary operations. The
applyfeature of Q# or the
ApplyWithCAoperation will be very handy here.
By the way, @crazy4pi314 will be streaming with @bettinaheim about the Q# compiler today in a little under three hours if anyone is interested to join at https://twitch.tv/crazy4pi314. More details at https://twitter.com/crazy4pi314/status/1271837229221101569.

Qubit => Unit is Adj + Ctl, such that
Adjoint Xalso has type
Qubit => Unit is Adj + Ctl. In the example from the contest problem,
Adjoint unitaryis an operation with type

Controlled opdoes modify the type to add the new control register. For more detail, you can checkout my book with @crazy4pi314 at bit.ly/qsharp-book, or the Microsoft Quantum docs at https://docs.microsoft.com/quantum/user-guide/using-qsharp/operations-functions#controlled-and-adjoint-operations.

qsharp.reloadhappens and it finds a .qs file in the directory that it somehow doesn't have the full qsharp environment ?
@amirebrahimi I think it's the same issue as discussed at https://quantumcomputing.stackexchange.com/questions/12466/qsharp-reload-throws-error-in-python and in comments at https://codeforces.com/blog/entry/77614
This fixed it for me. Thank you @tcNickolas_twitter!
Re: D1 - I'm trying to modify the ClassifierStructure() to simply add an additional controlled rotation:
ControlledRotation((1, new Int), PauliY, 1)
but get the following error:
Unhandled exception. System.ArgumentOutOfRangeException: Specified argument was out of the range of valid values.

I've dug through the source on GitHub a bit and it seems it is failing at estimating the number of qubits needed. Any ideas of how to resolve this? I would think simply by adding that ControlledRotation with another qubit referenced that it would expand the number of qubits.
So, this isn't immediately apparent, but you need to use the unwrap '!' operator to get at the qubits:
e.g. - register!
As far as the rest, you need to consider how adders work and the equivalent on a quantum computer (that is also reversible).
@githg22_gitlab In this particular case your data is encoded in just 1 qubit, so you have a choice of Rx, Ry and Rz gates :-) In general that's the same kind of challenge that classical machine learning faces - you need to figure out the feature engineering and the model structure before you can train it
But I'm getting a very high value of Miss rate (0.4)
@githg22_gitlab: There's indeed not a formatter for Q# yet, but that could be a great feature request at https://github.com/microsoft/qsharp-compiler/, or if you'd like to contribute one yourself, you may be interested in checking out some other compiler extensions such as the one @crazy4pi314 and @bettinaheim were working on in their stream yesterday at https://www.twitch.tv/videos/649894848 and in @crazy4pi314's fork at https://github.com/crazy4pi314/qsharp-compiler.
I'll check them out thanks
@amirebrahimi: This is actually a broader community for Q# developers and users, but it's really cool to see everyone from the contest! If you're interested in the Q# community, I'd encourage checking out what the Q# community has done at https://qsharp.community. There's some neat blog posts, GitHub projects, and so forth hosted there.
Thanks, @cgranade - I remember hearing about this community a while back I think from an interview you had either on QCN or meQuanics. Good to finally jump into Q# and give it a try. It's an interesting model and very different from the rest. In some ways I feel more restricted though.
Well, that was a lot of fun :) I see you came out right above me @githg22_gitlab. It's quite hilarious to me how much of the time I spent was just about getting the dev environment set up, learning how the Q# QML approach is architected, and figuring out how to reduce the training time iterations.
Haha. I agree with a lot of time spent over setting up the environment.
Welcome everyone, its really exciting to see so many new faces here! Hopefully the warm-ups have been going well 😄
@githg22_gitlab I have been wanting to work on a Q# linter/code formatter for a while, that would be a great project if you wanted to collaborate with the community here! (also my code would look so much nicer :P )
