Topological quantum codes illustrate a variety of concepts in quantum many-body physics. They also provide a realistic and resource-efficient approach to building scalable quantum computers. In this talk, I will focus on fault-tolerant quantum computing with a new topological code, the 3D subsystem toric code (STC). The 3D STC can be realized on the cubic lattice by measuring small-weight local parity checks. The 3D STC is capable of handling measurement errors while performing reliable quantum error correction and implementing logical gates in constant time. This dramatically reduces the computational time overhead and gives the 3D STC a resilience to time-correlated noise.
