Topic: Analysis of Quantum Error Correction Applicability on IBM-Q



Quantum computers are of great interest thanks to their computing abilities. Since 2016, real quantum devices are accessible to Internet users through the IBM Q Experience Platform. One of obstacles preventing reliable quantum computations is the presence of errors in quantum computers. Quantum error-correction is a field of study aiming at dealing with this problem.

In this talk, at first, the basis of quantum error-correction will be introduced. Next, the state of the art of quantum error-correction methods applications on IBM Q will be presented. Then an implementation of the five-qubit quantum error-correction code using Qiskit framework will be proposed and its applicability on available IBM Q devices will be discussed.
