The date on the article is March 28, 2022 by someone very, involved in the field of quantum physics. He's not a nay sayer, he's saying let's not believe the money driven hype stories.I read some of the nay sayer stories. Wouldnt it be funny though, if a quantum computer could only solve problems that improve a quantum computer? Ha ha. But of course that's not the case. It has been used on some interesting problems already.
What we also need to look at is the date on the various articles on the web because things are changing very fast these days.
A recent laboratory experiment at Google has observed some predicted aspects of quantum dynamics (dubbed “time crystals”) using 20 noisy superconducting qubits. The experiment was an impressive showcase of electronic control techniques, but it showed no computing advantage over conventional computers, which can readily simulate time crystals with a similar number of virtual qubits. It also did not reveal anything about the fundamental physics of time crystals. Other NISQ triumphs are recent experiments simulating random quantum circuits, again a highly specialized task of no commercial value whatsoever.
