Can someone summarize as to what are the problems and/or the open questions with the Hayden-Preskill circuit? (in the context of understanding black-holes or as a computer science question)It gives a framework to see how the black-hole can thermalize in a $log (entropy)$ time scale. What next?

To start off,

The sort of problem with the Hayden-Preskill circuit is that it works via random unitary transformations on disjoint pairs of qubits and hence doesn't have an Hamiltonian interpretation. I believe one has always believed that matrix models (of matrix size $\sqrt{entropy}$) can saturate this logarithmic thermalization bound via Hamiltonian evolution.
