  3. How to interpret the time horizon estimate of a technology researcher.

    0-1 year: It will happen, and it might even be on time.
    1-5 years: It will happen, but double the estimate.
    5-10 years: It will happen, someday, but we’re missing at least one key technology
    10-20 years: We’re not sure it will ever happen, and we don’t know what the solution will look like
    20+ years: Look, it’s not going to happen, but that doesn’t mean we can’t learn from more research
