The ContrafabulistsKin Lane and Audrey Watters – monitor predictions that technologists and marketers make about the future of technology. No surprise, most of the predictions are made about AI, a development whose future folks have been predicting incorrectly since the 1950s. Here are the predictions made this week:

The Wall Street Journal predicts that “The Next Billion Mobile Users Will Rely on Video and Voice.”

“Elon Musk is right,” The Next Web insists. “Driverless cars will arrive by 2021.”

The International Data Corp predicts that “Global spending on augmented reality and virtual reality (AR/VR) will double, at a minimum, each year through 2021.”
