"A student's tweak in quantum computing code could double its ability to
catch errors, piquing the interest of Amazon's quantum computing program.

The new code could be used to build quantum computers that live up to the
promises of lightning-fast processing time and the ability to solve more
complex problems than traditional computers could handle. So far, *only two
computers have reached "quantum supremacy,"*
<https://www.livescience.com/china-quantum-supremacy.html> or the ability
to complete a quantum calculation faster than the fastest supercomputer.
But neither of those computers used error correction codes that will be
necessary to scale up quantum computing for widespread, reliable use, the
researchers on the new study said."
