"Maybe [in the future we will be] reaching something on the order of 50 or 100 qubits, and also making significant progress in the related field of quantum simulation. I think we'll be able to do simulations that simply can't be done with normal computers—simulations of condensed matter systems, in particular, that will allow us to study properties of magnets or magnetism, conductivity or superconductivity.".
