We might not be able to predict the future after all

We had hypothesised that the future of science might be found in present-day rejected manuscripts. However, it turns out now that any prediction might be worthless. This is the premise of a new book by Dan Gardner: “Future Babble: Why Expert Predictions Are Next to Worthless, and You Can Do Better”.

I have not read the book yet, only the review by world-renowned wrongologist Kathryn Schultz, whose book “Being Wrong: Adventures at the Margins of Error” I also haven’t read yet either.

There’s a lot of catching up to do if you don’t want to miss the future. I’ll start yesterday….
