Proof that noisy quantum computers can outperform classical machines

Can the full computational power of noisy near-term quantum devices be unleashed, without paying the full price of quantum error correction? In the new paper, "Quantum advantage with noisy shallow circuits," an international team of researchers including myself seek to answer that question by proving a separation between the power of noisy quantum and that of noiseless classical computations, which obey certain technical restrictions.

Quantum Computers Flip the Script on Spin Chemistry

Recent research by IBM and University of Notre Dame serves as a new use case for quantum computing, showing that qubit noise, typically an impediment to quantum computer use, can actually be an advantage over a classical computer for chemical simulations.
