Title: Software and Algorithmic Approaches to Quantum Noise Mitigation: An Overview
Abstract: I will talk about recent developments in noise mitigation techniques for quantum computers. In the Noisy Intermediate-Scale Quantum (NISQ) era, qubits have short lifetimes and quantum gates are prone to errors. Understanding and mitigating quantum noises becomes a crucial step in realizing practical quantum computation. In this talk I will first give an overview of the field and its related research questions. We will then cover the techniques and recent results in systems software and algorithm designs for noise mitigation.
