Envisioning Technology created an infographic, which maps the future of emerging technologies on a loose timeline between now and 2040. Looking at emerging trends and research, one can predict and draw conclusions about how the technological sphere is developing, and which technologies should become mainstream in the coming years.
The infographic presents predictions about: Artificial Intelligence, Internet, Interfaces, Sensors, Ubicomp, Robotics, Biotech, Materials, Energy, Space, and Geoengineering.
Mouse over the entries for blurbs describing them and links to more information. Michell Zappa, Head of the Envisioning Technology argues that it’s true worth is displayed when you start connecting the dots between the individual technologies and start thinking about the critical paths between them.
