Top 10 Emerging Technologies 2019

World-changing technologies

World-changing technologies that are poised to rattle the status quo

One day soon an emerging technology highlighted in this report will allow you to virtually teleport
to a distant site and actually feel the handshakes and hugs of fellow cyber-travellers. Also close to becoming commonplace: humanoid (and animaloid) robots designed to socialize with people; a system for pinpointing the source of a food-poisoning outbreak in seconds; minuscule lenses that will pave the way for diminutive cameras and other devices; strong, biodegradable plastics that can be fashioned from otherwise useless plant wastes; DNA-based data storage systems that will reliably stow ginormous amounts of information; and much more.

An international Steering Committee of leading technology experts engaged in an intense process to identify this year’s Top 10 Emerging Technologies. After soliciting nominations from additional experts around the globe, the Steering Committee evaluated dozens of proposals according to a number of criteria. Do the suggested technologies have the potential to provide major bene ts to societies and economies? Could they alter established ways of doing things? Are they still in early stages of development but attracting a lot of interest from research labs, companies or investors? Are they likely to make signi cant inroads in the next several years? The committee sought added information where needed and honed the list in the course of four virtual meetings.

We hope you enjoy the result.
