  • Patent number: 11416762
    Abstract: A method, apparatus and product includes obtaining a logical representation of a quantum circuit and selecting a quantity of physical qubits for a physical representation of the quantum circuit, wherein the selecting of the quantity is based on a utility per-qubit metric that is used to define a utility per-qubit score of the quantum circuit. The utility per-qubit score is determined based on a ratio between a quality score of the quantum circuit when using the quantity of physical qubits and between a cost function of the quantum circuit, wherein the quality score is defined by a quality metric that is monotonically correlated to error rates of logical output qubits. The quantum circuit is synthesized using the quantity of the physical qubits that was selected.

  • Patent number: 11305935
    Abstract: A storage facility having lift robots and ground robots cooperating in transferring of totes within the facility, is disclosed. The transferring of totes between ground robots and lift robots in the facility through buffer locations, allows the totes to be carried on top of the lift robots, which are thereby secured against unintentional dropping of the tote. The efficiency of the storage facility may be further improved in that the buffer locations, and in various embodiments also short height storage locations, which are accessible directly to ground robots, are utilized for storing totes that are ranked as associated with high prevalence to be transferred by ground robots, without the involvement of lift robots.
