A collaboration of researchers at Finland's University of Helsinki (UH), Aalto University, and University of Turku, with colleagues at Switzerland's IBM Research Europe-Zurich, has yielded a scheme to boost quantum computers' speed and efficiency.

The researchers developed an algorithm that uses a generalized class of quantum measurements adapted throughout the calculation to extract data retained in the quantum state efficiently.

This lowers the number of iterations required, as well as the time and computational energy needed, to achieve highly precise simulations.

"We make the most out of every sample by combining all data produced," said UH's Guillermo García-Pérez.
