Quantum tensor networks provide a new language for describing many body systems. They model the entanglement structure of many body wavefunctions, and give a precise description of symmetries such as arising in systems exhibiting topological quantum order. In this talk, an overview will be given of the challenges, prospects and limitations of this approach.
