Qu&Co comments on this publication:

Usually, the interaction of an open quantum system with a noisy environment causes an irreversible loss of quantum coherence, which can be described by the Born-Markov approximation. Contrary, a non-Markovian environment (e.g. strong system-environment coupling) shows a pronounced 'memory effect', which can be used to revive quantum coherence as an alternative from shielding the environment. In this paper, Dong et al. show experimental results for such a non-Markovianity-assisted high-fidelity implementation of a quantum algorithm.
