Toward the year 2018

There is nothing more inspiring than the humbling experience of looking into the future from the past. And here we have an exceptionally brave book with a compilation of thirteen scholarly articles, looking fifty years into the future! Toward the year 2018—today!—from 1968. Each article is presented by an expert in a different field, who tried to predict what advances would be made in those fields. You may judge, but I would say that, while there are some fields where predictions have been close to the mark, there are others, notably weather and transportation, where we are not living up to our past expectations.
