The Contrafabulists – Kin 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:
Inc says that “By 2020, You’re More Likely to Have a Conversation With This Than With Your Spouse” (where “this” is AI).
Via The Washington Post: “ A planned space hotel hopes to welcome guests by 2022 – for a cost of almost $800,000 a night.”
Via The Next Web: “Apple reportedly plans to ditch Intel’s processors entirely by 2020.”
Via CNBC: “Amazon could ‘take Google to the cleaners’ in retail search with a $20 billion ad business, analyst says.”
