Temat: Mitigation of measurement noise on quantum devices

Prezentacja

Abstract:
Measurement (readout) noise has been demonstrated to be one of the dominant sources of errors in currently available quantum devices based on superconducting qubits. In this talk, I will discuss a few contributions which aim to mitigate this problem. I will start by describing how to efficiently model and characterize imperfect quantum measurements. Then I will describe a method to reduce the effects of those imperfections. The procedure is based on the characterization of the noise - data obtained in such characterization can be later used to suitably post-process results of further experiments, making them less noisy. In particular, I will demonstrate that our procedure is suitable to perform error-mitigation on problems that require simultaneous estimation of multiple marginal probability distributions (such as Quantum Approximate Optimization Algorithm). Finally, I will present the results of successful error-mitigation for experiments on 15 qubits on IBM’s quantum device. During the presentation, I will also provide a statistical analysis of the accuracy of the method. The concepts conveyed in this talk will be a mixture of ideas from work [1], and the on-going project in collaboration with M. Oszmaniec, F. Baccari, and Z. Zimboras.
