The technical realities of functional quantum computers – is Google’s ten-year plan for Quantum Computing viable?

Any computer to ever be used, from the early-days computers, to massive HPCs, are all “Turing-machines”, and are therefore equivalent to one another. I’d heard this first from Itamar Sivan, Ph.D., CEO, Quantum Machines. In Wikipedia: The halting problem is determining, from a description of an arbitrary computer program and an input, whether the program will finish running, or continue to run forever. In March, I explored the enterprise readiness of quantum computing in Quantum computing is right around the corner, but cooling is a problem. Just to make it clear, a quantum computer can be degenerated to behave like a classical computer, but NOT vice-versa. There is a lot more to this concept, but most computers you’ve ever seen or heard of are Turing Machines, except Quantum computers. According to Sivan, a quantum computer needs three elements to perform: a quantum computer and an orchestration platform of (conventional) hardware and software.
