Lechner, Hauke, and Zoller proposed a parity-encoded spin-embedding scheme for quantum annealing (QA) with all-to-all connectivity to avoid the issue of limited connectivity in near-term QA hardware and to enable the implementation thereof using only geometrically local interactions between spins fabricated on the planar substrate. Nevertheless, the redundant encoding of logical information, i.e., using a large number of spins to embed the logical information, increases the computational cost and reduces the efficiency. In this study, we show through Monte Carlo simulation that this redundant encoding may be exploited to solve the problems of the inefficiency and computational cost of the parity-encoded scheme by incorporating appropriate decoding, namely classical post-processing, of the spins to retrieve the logical information. Our findings open up the possibility of parity-encoded schemes for realizing the QA with near-term quantum technologies.
