DoE Black Box…Quantum computers have the potential to solve complex problems much faster than classical computers, but currently they are too error-prone to be consistently useful…

…While error correction would be the ideal solution, it is not yet feasible on current quantum computers due to the number of qubits needed. The next best thing is error mitigation – methods and software to minimize errors in the science outcomes of quantum simulations…

…Researchers at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory developed a new approach to quantum error mitigation that could help make quantum computing’s theoretical potential a reality: noise estimation circuits…
