—On today’s noisy imperfect quantum devices, execu- tion fidelity tends to collapse dramatically for most applications beyond a handful of qubits. It is therefore imperative to employ novel techniques that can boost quantum fidelity in new ways. This paper aims to boost quantum fidelity with Clifford canary circuits by proposing Quancorde: Quantum Canary Ordered D iverse Ensembles , a fundamentally new approach to identifying the correct outcomes of extremely low-fidelity quantum applications.

EQC: ensembled quantum computing for variational quantum algorithms

This paper proposes to constitute a quantum ensemble, which dynamically distributes quantum tasks asynchronously across a set of physical devices, and adjusts the ensemble configuration with respect to machine status, and builds a novel VQA training framework called EQC - a distributed gradient-based processor-performance-aware optimization system.

Error mitigation for variational quantum algorithms through mid-circuit measurements

This paper presents mid-circuit post-selection schemes for frequently used encodings such as one-hot, binary, gray, and domain-wall encoding, and proposes a method that works by compressing the full Hilbert space to a smaller subspace, allowing projecting to the desired subspace without using any ancilla qubits.

Error mitigation with Clifford quantum-circuit data

A novel, scalable error-mitigation method that applies to gate-based quantum computers and obtains an order-of-magnitude error reduction for a ground-state energy problem on 16 qubits in an IBMQ quantum computer and on a 64-qubit noisy simulator.

Characterizing quantum supremacy in near-term devices

A critical question for quantum computing in the near future is whether quantum devices without error correction can perform a well-defined computational task beyond the capabilities of

JigSaw: Boosting Fidelity of NISQ Programs via Measurement Subsetting

This work presents JigSaw, a framework that reduces the impact of measurement errors by running a program in two modes, and shows that the storage and time complexity of J SigSaw scales linearly with the number of qubits and trials, making Jigsaw applicable to programs with hundreds of qu bits.

Ensemble of Diverse Mappings: Improving Reliability of Quantum Computers by Orchestrating Dissimilar Mistakes

The concept of diversity is leveraged and an Ensemble of Diverse Mappings (EDM) is proposed, which uses diversity in qubit allocation to run copies of an input program with a diverse set of mappings, thus steering the trials towards making different mistakes.

Demonstration of Fidelity Improvement Using Dynamical Decoupling with Superconducting Qubits.

Dynamical decoupling is demonstrated to be suitable for implementation in today's relatively noisy and small-scale cloud-based quantum computers and achieves substantial fidelity gains relative to unprotected, free evolution of individual superconducting transmon qubits.

Robust dynamical decoupling

It is shown that pulse imperfections, which are always present in experimental implementations, limit the performance of dynamical decoupling and can be largely eliminated by a judicious design of pulses and sequences.

Measurement Error Mitigation for Variational Quantum Algorithms

A technique for mitigating expectation values against correlated measurement errors that can be applied to measurements of 10s of qubits is applied to VQAs and its effectiveness in improving estimates to the cost function is demonstrated.

Experimental error mitigation using linear rescaling for variational quantum eigensolving with up to 20 qubits

Quantum computers have the potential to help solve a range of physics and chemistry problems, but noise in quantum hardware currently limits our ability to obtain accurate results from the execution
