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 some of the predictions made this week:

“Over 40 percent of Newark students could attend charter schools within five years,” Chalkbeat predicts.

According to the press release from Markets & Markets, “Deep Learning Market Worth 18.16 Billion USD by 2023.”

Via Futurism: “Waymo Plans to Deploy The Largest Fleet of Autonomous Vehicles by 2020.”

According to Top Gear, “There could be 20,000 driverless Jaguars on the road by 2020.”

“Will Cash Be Gone by 2020?” ask Bank Innovation. No. No it won’t.
