Abstract

We review how computational search techniques inspired by biological evolution have been used to discover quantum circuits and quantum algorithms. We discuss issues in representing quantum artefacts in a form suitable for evolutionary search, various quantum artefacts that have been discovered through evolutionary search, and future prospects for this approach.
