Robots predict future better than humans

On the back of developing machine-learning tools and creating the new interdisciplinary scientific discipline "retrospective futurology," AI will initially study the history of all forecasts and predictions, derive general patterns, and then learn how to predict the future better than humans. "Retrospective futurology" will be taught in universities as a core subject of both social and technical sciences. What could be more exciting than studying past people’s view of the future! Unfortunately, many professional futurists and prognosticators will remain unemployed and without grants. Except for cases when it’s necessary to predict totally unreal phenomena beyond the scope of machine logic.
