Quantum computers are growing in size, and design decisions are being made now that attempt to squeeze more computation out of these machines. In this spirit, we design a method to boost the computational power of nearterm quantum computers by adapting protocols used in quantum error correction to implement “Approximate Quantum Error Correction (AQEC):” By approximating fully-fledged error correction mechanisms, we can increase the compute volume (qubits $\times$ gates, or “Simple Quantum… Expand
