From: Interview by Kaustubh Katdare, CrazyEngineers

What kind of problems can we attempt to solve in the future using Mathematica?

Anything that can be made computational! There’s a huge knowledgebase of algorithms and data now in Mathematica. And the symbolic programming paradigm that underlies Mathematica has turned out to be incredibly general and powerful. It’s really fun for me to see how incredibly productive people who know Mathematica well can be. They seem to be able to solve pretty much any kind of computational problem with it—very fast.
