Quantum error correction

Most people are familiar with fault-tolerance even if they don’t realise it. I like to compare with how compact discs tolerate some mild scratching.

Earl is a world expert in quantum error correction with nearly two decades of experience in creating fresh design concepts for fault-tolerant quantum computing architectures. During his career, Earl has made significant contributions to quantum error correction, fault-tolerant quantum logic and compilation, and quantum algorithms--with 80+ publications and authoring the premier review on quantum error correction in Nature.
