Bill Gates is known to be a lot of things: software genius, philanthropist and entrepreneur, to name just a few.
But how about...oracle? You know, a person who can look into the future and see all the possible outcomes a la Doctor Strange in Avengers: Infinity War.
Twenty years ago, Gates wrote Business @ the Speed of Thought, a book discussing how business and technology were starting to become increasingly integrated, a concept that was relatively new at the time.

It may surprise you how accurate some of his theories turned out to be. From virtual assistants like Alexa to social media, Gates had a startling sense of the future.
