How to Verify That Quantum Chips Are Computing Correctly

How to verify that quantum chips are computing correctly

A new method determines whether circuits are accurately executing complex operations that classical computers can’t tackle. Researchers from MIT, Google, and elsewhere have designed a protocol called Variational Quantum Unsampling, based on a novel quantum neural network, that verifies when photonic Noisy Intermediate Scale Quantum (NISQ) chips have accurately performed complex computations using light.
