The application of quantum computing to machine learning offers some interesting solutions characterized by a quantum advantage with respect to the classical counterparts in terms of time and space complexity, expressive power, generalization capability, at least on a theoretical level. In this lecture, we give an overview on some quantum machine learning algorithms including distance-based classifiers and different kinds of quantum neural networks. In particular, we focus on the most promising approaches relating to existing and near-term quantum machines.
