Quantum error correction schemes have gained a lot of attention in recent years. This is due to the emergence of small scale quantum devices that make use of superconducting qubits. However these devices are noisy and prone to quantum decoherence and thus errors. Along with quantum error correction there has been a push for new schemes in quantum error mitigation that take a more passive approach in eliminating readout errors. In this research we introduce a software method for quantum error mitigation that maps virtual qubits in a circuit to physical qubits with the least error. The method developed was tested on 9 IBM quantum devices. Results in the study have shown the method can reduce readout errors by up to 35.52%.
