On Tuesday, two anonymous women filed a lawsuit against Uber on behalf of individuals who have experienced "rape, sexual assault, physical violence, and gender-motivated harassment" by Uber drivers. The lawsuit states that both women were sexually assaulted by their Uber drivers, and accuses Uber of creating a system that fails at both preventing and handling these incidents of sexual violence.

Uber announced on Sunday that it's taking new steps toward preventing sexual assault and domestic violence, starting with a $US5 million ($6.5 million) donation to its partners - Raliance, National Network to End Domestic Violence, No More, Women of Color Network, Casa de Esperanza, A Call to Men, and The National Coalition of Anti-Violence Programs - along with an employee training program and in-app messaging to educate riders and drivers.

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.
