Quantum Insider Insights: Error-Correction, A Bridge or a Bandage in the NISQ Era?

quantum error correction
Quantum Error Correction may be a bridge or a lifeline for the quantum computing industry.

The pace of exciting research in error-correction has quickened for both university and corporate research groups. Some experts believe that error-correction will create quantum advantage — a point at which quantum computers can outperform classical computers at some tasks — much quicker than originally thought. Others suggest that these techniques will have to work because fault-tolerant quantum computers are still years (at least) away.

In this Quantum Insider Insights, we’ll take a look at some of this research, review research on just how necessary this error correction is — and analyze the debate on the role error-correction will play in getting us to the quantum era.
