Each of the items mentioned in current developments needs to be developed further along the lines of current work. Estimates of future progress are very difficult to make accurately. But perhaps by figuring the progress in each field separately (also considering past developments), we can at least bound a guess. Personally, I'd say 50 to 150 years, but there has been remarkably little serious discussion of the time line on the network. Comments appreciated.
