Researchers Utilize Noise Data to Improve Reliability of Quantum Computers

A new method by researchers at Princeton University, University of Chicago and IBM significantly improves the reliability of quantum computers by utilizing data about the noisiness of operations on real hardware.

In a paper presented this week, researchers reported a novel compilation method that boosts the ability of resource-constrained and “noisy” quantum computers to produce useful answers. Notably, the researchers illustrated a nearly three times average improvement in reliability for real-system runs on IBM’s 16-qubit quantum computer, improving some program executions by as much as 18-fold.
