Variational quantum algorithms (VQAs) constitute a class of hybrid quantum-classical algorithms that are investigated primarily for NISQ processors. I will give an overview of these algorithms and narrow the discussion into a crucial part of VQAs, the choice of the parameterized ansatz. I will give highlights from our work on the preparation of compact, problem-tailored ansatze for quantum many-body simulation and optimization.
