# Quantum error correction on IBM devices?

I'm wondering if the gate errors on any of the IBM devices are low enough so that we could use some error correcting codes which do not require too many qubits? (such as 5- or 7-qubit codes). Even running programs with on little as 2 logical qubits would be cool.

• How low would the gate errors need to be for your problem? You can view the gate errors by running backend.properties() and reading out the errors listed there. Also, there are some error mitigation methods included in the Qiskit Ignis package: github.com/Qiskit/qiskit-ignis. Not sure if those would also suffice for what you are trying to do. – Matthew Stypulkoski Jun 17 '20 at 20:32
