Bayesian ACRONYM Tuning

LIPIcs-TQC-2019-7.pdf (0.6 MB)


We provide an algorithm that uses Bayesian randomized benchmarking in concert with a local optimizer, such as SPSA, to find a set of controls that optimizes that average gate fidelity. We call this method Bayesian ACRONYM tuning as a reference to the analogous ACRONYM tuning algorithm. Bayesian ACRONYM distinguishes itself in its ability to retain prior information from experiments that use nearby control parameters; whereas traditional ACRONYM tuning does not use such information and can require many more measurements as a result. We prove that such information reuse is possible under the relatively weak assumption that the true model parameters are Lipschitz-continuous functions of the control parameters. We also perform numerical experiments that demonstrate that over-rotation errors in single qubit gates can be automatically tuned from 88% to 99.95% average gate fidelity using less than 1kB of data and fewer than 20 steps of the optimizer.
