Advancing quantum technologies is a multi-faceted enterprise including device design and fabrication, cryogenic and electronic setups, and software and calibration. Two important theaters of experiments are noisy intermediate-scale quantum (NISQ) and quantum error correction (QEC). We highlight recent progress by our team in both NISQ and QEC, placing it in the context of our quantum computing roadmap to an error corrected machine. In particular, we focus on recent work realizing toric code and surface code states and characterizing them from two perspectives: topological quantum matter and quantum error correction.
