    Quantum artificial intelligence (Quantum AI) is an emergent interdisciplinary field that explores the interplay between artificial intelligence and quantum physics. On the one hand, judiciously designed quantum algorithms may exhibit intriguing advantages in solving certain AI problems; on the other hand, ideas and techniques from AI can also be exploited to tackle challenging problems in the quantum domain. In this lecture, I will give a gentle introduction to quantum AI, addressing the following three major questions: a) what is Quantum AI? b) why should we care? c) what is the current status? I will review some recent progress in this field and talk about several concrete examples to illustrate how AI and quantum physics can promote studies in both fields.
