Single-Qubit Cross Platform Comparison of Quantum Computing Hardware

  title={Single-Qubit Cross Platform Comparison of Quantum Computing Hardware},
  author={Adrien Suau and Jon Nelson and Marc Vuffray and Andrey Y. Lokhov and Lukasz Cincio and Carleton Coffrin},
As a variety of quantum computing models and platforms become available, methods for assessing and comparing the performance of these devices are of increasing interest and importance. Despite being built of the same fundamental computational unit, radically different approaches have emerged for characterizing the performance of qubits in gate-based and quantum annealing computers, limiting and complicating consistent cross-platform comparisons. To fill this gap, this work proposes a single-qubit…

Quantum Computing in the NISQ era and beyond

Noisy Intermediate-Scale Quantum (NISQ) technology will be available in the near future, and the 100-qubit quantum computer will not change the world right away - but it should be regarded as a significant step toward the more powerful quantum technologies of the future.

Machine Learning of Noise-Resilient Quantum Circuits

A general framework based on machine learning for reducing the impact of quantum hardware noise on quantum circuits, called noise-aware circuit learning (NACL), applies to circuits designed to compute a unitary transformation, prepare a set of quantum states, or estimate an observable of a many-qubit state.
