A quantum computer employing a single quantum as a qubit executes real parallel computation and has various applications. Several algorithms have been proposed for quantum computation. However, these algorithms are applicable only to a limited number of applications. Therefore, a general purpose algorithm should be studied and developed for practical use in the near future. In this paper, we focus on the adiabatic evolution algorithm for general purpose quantum computation and discuss how to use this algorithm for solving an optimization problem. We show a new algorithm incorporating an artificial neural network (ANN)-like method in order to compose another Hamiltonian. The new algorithm is helpful for reducing computation cost and is easy to implement. Successful simulation results are shown.
