More recently, DD has emerged as a promising strategy toward achieving scalable quantum information processing (QIP), thanks to its potential for protecting logical quantum states against always-on qubit-qubit interactions and for suppressing environmental decoherence.
Advantages of Randomization in Coherent Quantum Dynamical Control
In short, even though deterministic protocols appear to be more protected against finite width and flip-angle errors than randomized schemes, in the case of relatively small errors the advantages of randomization at long times are still dominant.
