Strategic News Service™ to Host 11th Annual Predictions Dinner at Lotte NY Palace Hotel

Event to Feature SNS™ Predictions for 2016 and Centerpiece Conversation With Vern Brownell, CEO of Quantum Computing Company D-Wave Systems

FRIDAY HARBOR, WA--(Marketwired - November 24, 2015) - Known for his publicly graded 94.5% accuracy rate, Strategic News Service™ (SNS) CEO Mark Anderson will reveal his highly anticipated predictions for 2016 in the fields of technology, economics, and global policy, on Thursday, December 3, at the Lotte New York Palace Hotel in Manhattan.

Also featured at the 11th annual SNS Predictions Dinner will be a Centerpiece Conversation with guest Vern Brownell, CEO of the esteemed quantum computing firm D-Wave Systems, on "The Future of Quantum Computing." D-Wave has recently begun shipments of a 2k Qbit quantum computing system, with early orders from Lockheed Martin, among other major customers.

"As recent FiRe Conference participants are aware, we are increasingly moving from accurately predicting the future to making it happen. The Pattern Computer, the Pattern Recognition Laboratory, new advances in interspecies communication, and the creation of new medical fields are all examples of these new efforts. Having just spent serious time at D-Wave, I am particularly excited to have Vern Brownell with us, to describe the major leaps forward his team has achieved in building the most advanced commercial quantum computer on the planet," said Anderson.

"We look forward to meeting old and new friends at the New York Dinner and sharing our outlook for 2016."

Further discussion will cover major trends in technology, the global economy, the newly designed Pattern Computer and the just-announced FiRe / Calit2 Pattern Recognition Laboratory, recent SNS calls regarding the China Collapse, and the new SNS FiReBooks e-book Stealth Japan: The Surprising Success of the World's First InfoMercantilist Economy, by Scott Foster. Anderson will also review his predictions for 2015, assessing their accuracy over the past year. The evening will open with a cocktail reception and end with a Q&A.
