Quantum error correction has certain challenges that aren't present in the classical case: phase flips in addition to bit flips, the no cloning theorem and more. I'll talk about stabilizer codes, including surface codes, which can detect and correct these errors.
Basic knowledge of qubits and gates would be handy in following the talk.
