Good.  Maybe they can tell me.  I've always wondered where I'd be in a few years.

I've moved 34 times in 39 years.  Good luck using anything I do today to determine where I'll be next year, much less in five.

And then you take a vacation, move or change jobs and they're completely farked.

"Where do you see yourself in five years time? It's a common interview question designed to learn about a person's ambitions, and thanks to new technology you could soon be able to give a precise answer to this question."

I hate that farking question. Along with the "what's your greatest weakness" question. Fark. That.

I'm pretty sure the daily mail science section is a step down from from the SyFy channel. I'm not sure what would be the next step down. Then creation museum maybe, but its close.

Nice irrelevant unexplained graphics there.

Today they would have scored a goose egg. I woke up before I normally do, went to the gym on a day I normally don't, and went to stores I generally go to on Saturday mornings.

If you are predictable enough for this system you are a little bit dead.

This might have worked in the days when employment averaged longer than what, 1.5 years? But with this generation? That person could be across the country chasing the last job in their industry in 5 years..

I suspect the vacation data would be ignored.

I believe the research is where the aggregate of these people will be in 5 years. Given thousands of people it will be correct about a high percentage of them.

The results are 'highly accurate' and can plot locations to the date

How can they say something like that if it has not happened yet. Years in advanced at that.  Meh, anymore, people are more mobile, change jobs more often.....

Yeah, I can't really see any evidence they can do that in this article, it sounds like they are great at telling someone that works a 9 to 5 if it's noon he will be at work for at least one more hour.

What do you mean how can they say that? I can answer EVERY single answer on the SAT... now I am not saying I will be right though

In Universal terms...or in Galactic terms?

And are the units from this arm...or the core?

We've got to get this straight.

I had an interview yesterday.  One of the questions asked was "What negative things would your former bosses say about you?"  I thought for a moment and said "Well, occasionally, I mean very occasionally, I can be a slight bit arrogant.  But only VERY occasionally, like so occasionally it's hardly worth mentioning."  The interviewer waited, and asked "And what else would they say?"  I asked "You need more?"

I had the follow up interview today and signed the job acceptance papers.

So what if you bounce around like a nomad?

Where do you see yourself in five years time?

Useless at this time. Anyone predictable to fit the model would be that predictable anyway. But as they develop the technology, it will be used by the government to spy on us just like all the other uses of technology so far.Just like they had GPS units to track parolees, now all of us are being tracked by the GPS in our cellphones. The good part of that is that if you are going to do a crime, you can secure your cellphone somewhere other than the scene of the crime to prove that you were somewhere other than the scene of the crime.

In your chair.

You`d be best calling someone and replaying a message while you are doing the crime to make it certain you were at a different physical place. It would create `reasonable doubt` so you could play neighborhood watch as much as you like!

Huh keeps showing you at a cemetary...
