Using a Rydberg atom-array quantum simulator, we experimentally demonstrate new applications which become possible through verifiable quantum evolution. At the outset, we show experimental benchmarking of system sizes with up to 60 atoms, and demonstrate new techniques in approximate verification beyond the classical simulation threshold. Further, we show how such benchmarking allows us to perform in situ local Hamiltonian learning, to optimize Hamiltonian engineering for preparing interesting quantum states, and to make quantitative comparisons between analog and digital quantum devices aiming to create maximum entanglement entropy states. These developments showcase practically useful applications for device benchmarking protocols in quantum devices, and further demonstrate concrete steps towards quantum advantage with a near term quantum simulator.
