Quantum Encoding: An Overview

Encoding information for storage or transmission is one of the fundamental tasks of information theory. For decades, the bit has been the fundamental unit for information science. However, advances in quantum computing have led to the development of quantum computers that use qubits(quantum bits) instead of bits. Qubits can be 0, 1, or in both of these two states at once(superposition). Empowered by superposition, quantum entanglement and interference quantum computers have capabilities to solve certain problems faster than conventional computers through various quantum algorithms.

Real-world quantum computers would be possible sooner through new method of circuit compression

Any real-world quantum computer faces the challenge of needing to deal with errors with large numbers of physical qubits. These errors that accumulate are resource-intensive as well as time-consuming in terms of computation. Researchers have not found an effective software method that allows for quantum circuits to be compressed significantly, reducing the demands on hardware.
