Preprints are manuscripts made publicly available before they have been submitted for formal peer review and publication. They might contain new research findings or data. Preprints can be a draft or final version of an author's research but must not have been accepted for publication at the time of submission.
Designing and implementing algorithms for medium and large scale quantum computers is not easy. In previous work we have suggested, and developed, the idea of using machine learning techniques to train a quantum system such that the desired process is ``learned,'' thus obviating the algorithm design difficulty. This works quite well for small systems. But the goal is macroscopic physical computation. Here, we implement our learned pairwise entanglement witness on Microsoft's Q\#, one of the commercially available gate model quantum computer simulators; we perform statistical analysis to determine reliability and reproducibility; and we show that after training the system in stages for an incrementing number of qubits (2, 3, 4, \ldots) we can infer the pattern for mesoscopic $N$ from simulation results for three-, four-, five-, six-, and seven-qubit systems. Our results suggest a fruitful pathway for general quantum computer algorithm design and for practical computation on noisy intermediate scale quantum devices.
