Many modern materials feature a “Planckian metal”: a phase of electronic quantum matter without quasiparticle excitations, and relaxation in a time of order Planck's constant divided by the absolute temperature. I will review recent progress in understanding such metals using insights from the Sachdev-Ye-Kitaev model of many-particle quantum dynamics. I will also note connections to progress in understanding the quantum nature of black holes.
