We present a memory-efficient quantum algorithm implementing the action of an artificial neuron according to a classical model of the perceptron with both binary and continuous variables on a quantum computer. Then we show that this model is amenable to be extended to a multilayered artificial neural network, which is able to solve tasks that would be impossible to a single one of its constituent artificial neurons. We discuss how the scalar product operation can be efficiently obtained in quantum circuits, thus laying the basis for a fully quantum artificial intelligence algorithm run on noisy intermediate-scale quantum hardware.
The algorithm, tested on noisy IBM-Q superconducting real quantum processors, succeeds in elementary classification 
and image-recognition tasks through a hybrid quantum-classical training procedure.
