This paper presents the results of an experimen- tal study that evaluated the ability of quantum neural net- works (QNNs) to capture and quantify uncertainty in data and compared their performance with that of conventional feedforward neural networks (FFNNs). In this work, QNNs and FFNNs were trained to classify short segments of epi- leptic seizures in neonatal EEG. The experiments revealed significant differences between the internal representations created by trained QNNs and FFNNs from sample informa- tion provided by the training data. The results of this exper- imental study also confirmed that the responses of trained QNNs are more reliable indicators of uncertainty in the input data compared with the responses of trained FFNNs.
