DescriptionSusceptibility to noise and device imperfections severely limit the performance of quantum computers and the usefulness of the algorithms they can run. In the path towards quantum advantage, improvements in hardware design and fabrication as well as quantum error correction at the logical level will have to be unified by autonomous tools that stabilize and abstract hardware performance for compatibility with higher levels in the software stack. Here we present quantum control infrastructure software that bridges hardware-specific instructions and abstracted software layers, with a focus on delivering autonomy and improved error performance with imperfect hardware.
