Noise-aware circuit learning

Overlap errors AB

Noise mitigation and reduction will be crucial for obtaining useful answers from near-term quantum computers.

We present a general framework based on machine learning for reducing the impact of quantum hardware noise and limitations on quantum circuits. Given a computational task and a device model, our noise-aware circuit learning algorithm (NACL) outputs an optimized circuit to accomplish this task in the presence of noise.
