QEC and Architecture

Dr. Simon Devitt rejoins us to discuss the impact of error correction on architecture.

Dr. Simon Devitt of Turing, Inc. rejoins us to describe how error correction affects our architectural choices. The farther beyond the QEC threshold our technology is, the less error correction we need. Additionally, he describes some of the architectural designs he creates with Prof. Kae Nemoto, from the error correction point of view. You may wish to revisit Steps 4.3 and 4.11 in conjunction with this Step.

This is the final technical Video Step of the entire course. Next up you will find a quiz to reinforce your learning, then we turn to a series of Articles on the Quantum Information Technology Industry to wrap up.
