TITLE: Benchmarking, simulating and correcting errors in quantum computers with open-source tools

Unitary Fund is a non-profit organization performing in-house research in quantum technology and supporting the quantum open-source ecosystem [1,2]. I will give an overview of recent research results in quantum error mitigation and error correction [3,4], classical simulation [5], and benchmarking of quantum computers [6,7]. This talk will give a brief overview of related open-source activities, highlighting how new kinds of research-focused organizations can advance open innovation.
