1 Como se imagina que va a ser la carrera de Ingenieria de Sistemas y Computacion y la profesión en el futuro (p.e 20 años)? Pedro Szekely Information Sciences Institute of the University of Southern California

2 Prediction is very difficult, especially if it's about the future. Niels Bohr. I have made good judgments in the past. I have made good judgments in the future. Dan Quayle. Trying to predict the future is like trying to drive down a country road at night with no lights while looking out the back window. Peter Drucker. The best way to predict the future is to write it. Winston Churchill. Predicting the Present with Google Trends. Hal Varian (Google)
