Demonstrating a quantum computational speed-up is a crucial milestone for near-term quantum technology. Recently, sampling protocols for quantum simulators have been proposed that have the potential to show such a quantum advantage, based on commonly made assumptions. The key challenge in the theoretical analysis of this scheme-as of other comparable schemes such as boson sampling-is to lessen the assumptions and close the theoretical loopholes, replacing them by rigorous arguments.
