Tech VCs, at Churchill Club, predict an edgy future

SANTA CLARA, Calif. – Innovation drives the tech industry, but nothing happens without investors. That’s why the Churchill Club’s annual Top Tech Trends event here in Silicon Valley always sells out — to find out where the folks with money are placing their bets.

Every year, a panel of leading venture capitalists delivers 10 predictions and defends the trends they think will have a big impact in the next five years. Panelists (and audience members) vote up or down each one — and offer critiques based on the merits or whether a prediction is so obvious it’s not really a prediction.

This is the 19th year the Trends event has taken place and this year included a diverse set of predictions involving food production, anti-plague remedies, artificial intelligence, new forms of education, a new type of investing, big advances in voice technology and the expectation that Amazon.com will be hit with a major anti-trust lawsuit.
