Do you want to get started with Quantum Machine Learning? Have a look at **Hands-On Quantum Machine Learning With Python****.**

In the previous post, we learned that the quantum superposition inevitably collapses when you look at it. It collapses to one of the basis states of your computational basis. This is usually the vertical direction of the qubit.

There is, of course, nothing special about the vertical direction. The definition of a qubit’s computational basis is entirely…
