"The first tangible steps towards quantum computation are happening now. Intel, Google, and IBM are racing to build larger arrays of qubits to create quantum circuits that outperform classical computers. However, the challenges are still immense. In particular, how can we correct the inevitable errors that qubits accumulate? In this talk, I will explain my recent work on Quantum Error Correction. In particular, I will review a new method for analyzing statistical data from quantum surface codes that promises to simplify the process of error correction."
