# Supervised Learning for quantum Dots

In this video, we motivate why machine learning algorithms are beneficial in tuning and control task of quantum devices - and specifically, those based on semiconductor technology. We cover the concept of tuning as a high-level optimization problem and show how to conceptualize it as an input-output machine learning problem.

# Main takeaways

- Any tuning problem can be understood as a high-dimensional optimization
- There are distinct levels of abstraction in tuning:
- directly parsing the structure in measured data
- mapping the measured data on physics parameters

- Solid-state qubits are unique candidates for ML techniques: inherent properties of semiconductor qubits present time-dependent complex noise that requires generalisation and more sophisticated data processing

# Further thinking

True or False:Semiconductor qubits are easier to fabricate than superconducting qubits and therefore they are easier to tune.
