I am preparing to write a survey paper on the use of quantum mechanical
ideas (c.f. quantum computation) in (machine or artificial) learning. 
Below are the papers relating to this topic that I have been able to dig
up.  The list is quite small and any other related references would be
greatly appreciated.  I would of course be glad to compile the final
list (if it changes) for any one interested.  Please send comments or
input to the email address below.  Thanks.
