10 Emerging Technology Trends from 2020 Science

Really good high level 10 years trends. Much better than “more mobile ads”…

2020 Science is a blog focused on the future of science and technology.

Their Emerging Technologies to Watch list is:

  1. Geoengineering
  2. Smartgrids
  3. Radical materials
  4. Synthetic biology (engineering DNA)
  5. Personal genomics
  6. Bio-interfaces
  7. Data-interfaces
  8. Solar power
  9. Nootropics (drugs that enhance cognitive ability)
  10. Cosmeceuticals (cosmetics that also deliver drugs)

The post also discusses convergence as a mega trend. Key quote:

And one final word. Many of the technologies I’ve highlighted reflect an overarching trend: convergence. Although not a technology in itself, synergistic convergence between different areas of knowledge and expertise will likely dominate emerging technology trends over the next decade.

For details on the 10 trends, or more on the future of science visit Science 2020.

Probably my favorite in all similar lists I have seen (and I’ve seen a lot in the last 2-3 weeks)!
