Disentangling the Facts From the Hype of Quantum Computing (4 minute read)

The field of quantum computing has seen a lot of hype over the last few years. Companies have started to shift their timelines back, and the industry may be moving into a phase of the hype cycle called the 'trough of disillusionment'. Humans are still a long way from achieving quantum practicality, but progress towards that goal is accelerating. The industry needs to continue its evolution of qubit counts and quality improvements. It will likely be over a decade before anything of compelling value will be realized.
