Quantum Computing and Machine Learning for Combinatorial Optimisation

This project combines quantum computing and machine learning to enhance combinatorial problem-solving. Leveraging Neural Network Quantum States (NNQS) and Quantum Annealing (QA) platforms, it aims to optimize Quadratic Unconstrained Binary Optimization (QUBO) for real-world tasks.
