  2. In this study, we explore the similarities and differences between variational Monte Carlo techniques that employ conventional and artificial neural network representations of the ground-state wave function for fermionic systems. Our primary focus is on shallow neural network architectures, specifically the restricted Boltzmann machine, and we examine unsupervised learning algorithms that are appropriate for modeling complex many-body correlations. We assess the advantages and drawbacks of conventional and neural network wave functions by applying them to a range of circular quantum dot systems. Our findings, which include results for systems containing up to 90 electrons, emphasize the efficient implementation of these methods on both homogeneous and heterogeneous high-performance computing facilities.

  3. Abstract Semiconductor materials provide a compelling platform for quantum technologies (QT). However, identifying promising material hosts among the plethora of candidates is a major challenge. Therefore, we have developed a framework for the automated discovery of semiconductor platforms for QT using material informatics and machine learning methods. Different approaches were implemented to label data for training the supervised machine learning (ML) algorithms logistic regression, decision trees, random forests and gradient boosting. We find that an empirical approach relying exclusively on findings from the literature yields a clear separation between predicted suitable and unsuitable candidates. In contrast to expectations from the literature focusing on band gap and ionic character as important properties for QT compatibility, the ML methods highlight features related to symmetry and crystal structure, including bond length, orientation and radial distribution, as influential when predicting a material as suitable for QT.
