Foundational step shows quantum computers can be better than the sum of their parts

Researchers have experimentally demonstrated, for the first time, that an assembly of quantum computing pieces — a logical qubit — can be better than the worst parts used to make it. The team shared how they took this landmark step toward reliable, practical quantum computers by implementing the Bacon-Shor code and a fault-tolerant design on an ion trap-based quantum computer.
