In this talk, Benedikt Placke introduces QEC and explains how the unique interplay between the classical and the quantum world enables us to efficiently correct errors effecting such systems.

Quantum computing is a new model of computation that holds the promise of significantly improved performance over classical computing for some problems of interest. However, by its very nature quantum computers are sensitive to disturbance by external noise, most likely necessitating the use quantum error correction (QEC) for useful application.

Furthermore, Benedikt Placke comments on the deep connection between QEC and questions in condensed matter physics.
