Quantum systems are highly sensitive, and still extremely error prone. As such, it’s important to be able to detect and quickly correct these errors in order to ensure their reliability. Self-repairing quantum systems can detect and correct their own errors using special encoding and decoding techniques. The University of Maryland’s Joint Quantum Institute is home to a research program that focuses on developing error-correction techniques for quantum systems. Google’s Quantum AI Lab is also working on projects related to self-repairing quantum systems, including the creation of codes that can fix errors in quantum computers.
