Abstract: Quantum reservoir computing is a promising approach to quantum neural networks capable of solving hard learning tasks on both classical and quantum input data. However, current approaches with qubits are limited by low connectivity. We propose an implementation for quantum reservoir that obtains a large number of densely connected neurons by using parametrically coupled quantum oscillators instead of physically coupled qubits. We analyse a specific hardware implementation based on superconducting circuits. Our results give the coupling and dissipation requirements in the system and show how they affect the performance of the quantum reservoir. Beyond quantum reservoir computation, the use of parametrically coupled bosonic modes holds promise for realizing large quantum neural network architectures.
