Stanford technology predictions partial review

Reviewing the Delta scan predictions of the Stanford humanities lab.
I had already reviewed one of the predictions

Here are several of the computer related predicions

They predict Working prototypes of quantum computers may be demonstrated by 2040

The working prototype demo was Feb 13 of this year By next year quantums will be well scaled up and commercial.

Nanoscale physical materials that can be automatically assembled into useful configurations by computer instructions could usher in a new era in manufacturing. 11-20 years It is inprecise because certain DNA nanotechnology already qualifies as assembled via computer instructions. If they are talking about diamondoid molecular manufacturing then the timeframe is not unreasonable.
