The 25 new technologies that will triumph between 2015 and 2020. - The Comprehensive Minds

The 25 new technologies that will triumph between 2015 and 2020.


Those of us who work in the internet business world sometimes forget that other new technologies will be critical in the years to come and that they are tightly connected to the internet because, in the end, it all grows together.

Reading a good "Top 25 New Fields for Millennials" article on technology trends, I found it useful to review the list of the 25 new technologies that are emerging that will see heavy adoption from 2015 to 2020 and beyond.


If you have digital kids born after 2000 I would encourage them to step into any of these areas professionally as they are the ones with the greatest future.


Entrepreneurs need to be on the cutting edge of new technology as it is vital both to our future as entrepreneurs and to create a better world.


Next, I am listing the list of new technologies that need to be considered:


1. Clean energy or clean energy. 

It's the biggest challenge. Energy sectors: solar, wind, biofuels, bioenergy, carbon capture and storage, nuclear fusion power, and battery storage (including plutonium and strontium batteries). The new energies will improve living conditions in developing countries.


2. Nanotechnology. 

It is the new technology that is based on the manipulation of microscopic materials and makes it possible to edit and manipulate the molecular structures and their atoms. Thanks to nanotechnology, important innovations are being developed in areas such as carbon nanotubes. the desalination of water thanks to graphene and 3D printing with Tronics; and great advances in medicine, surgery, and new industries that will change a large number of products.


3. Education in the cloud. 

Companies like Coursera, Udemy, Udacity, Code Academy, Skillshare, and nonprofits like Khan Academy and EDx enable anyone in the world connected to the cloud to get quality training from Harvard, Stanford, or MIT! Broadband internet access is reaching places where it is now unavailable. Another example is the free MOOCs from Womenalia


4. Water desalination. 

Recent research at MIT has used graphene to create an energy-efficient way to remove salt from water. If the human population grows, it will reach 9.5 billion by 2050, guaranteeing access to drinking water for some of the people who lack it. Something critically important to both health and nutrition improvements and geopolitical stability.


5. Convergence of cell phones and personal computers. 

Our smartphone will soon also be our PC. We just need to connect the phone to an HDMI monitor to turn it into a full PC. Once smartphones are powerful enough to run Excel, there is no longer any need to have a separate computer unit for the larger monitor. At this point, 59% of Internet users in India only access their mobile phones. There are also important mobile applications for your company


6. Quantum Computing. 

In 2013, Google bought a DWAVE II quantum computer and founded the Quantum Artificial Research Center (QUAIL) in collaboration with NASA. Unlike binary computers, which require the bits to be in state 1 or 0, computers with Quantum technology use overlap to allow all levels between 0 and 1, which allows for much more processing. 

Fast. Studies on quantum particles will enormously increase the speed of computers, which will also accelerate the possibilities of researchers.


7. "Internet of Things" or devices connected in the cloud. 

In the future, cloud-connected chips and sensors will be found in everyday devices. Not only televisions, tablets, or mobile phones are connected, but also the heating, the car, the refrigerator, the pacemaker, and this very special teddy bear.


8. Contact lens smartphones (glasses used to make cell phones). 

For example the Google Glass project. Soon we will be able to surf the Internet in Spain and communicate with friends using glasses, as is already the case in the USA.


9. Data storage. 

Recent Harvard work has made it possible to store data within DNA, with 700 terabytes of data stored in a single gram of DNA. In 2012, IBM announced that a bit of data could be stored in just 12 atoms.


10. Electronic devices and synthetic materials in the human body. 

There are already pacemakers, cochlear implants (to be able to hear), bionic eyes, and synthetic organs. This trend will accelerate in the years to come and allow rapid advances in human health. 

However, there will be numerous debates on fundamental ethical issues and human rights. To learn more about this topic, I recommend you watch the documentary The Transcendent Man: The Singularity is Near.


11. Artificial intelligence. 

In 2011, it was Jeopardy's first human-machine competition, and IBM's Watson supercomputer defeated champions Ken Jennings and Rutter Brad. This was a much more complicated test of artificial intelligence than the one Deep Blue faced when defeating the best chess player in the world, Gary Kasparov. 

Now IBM is using Watson technology to help clinicians diagnose patients or brands to connect with their customers.


12. Synthetic biology. 

Biology used to be the exclusive domain of nature. After humans learned to work the code of life, applications emerged such as smart fuels, synthetic algae, synthetic foods that can feed billions of people, altered stem cells that can extend the life ...


13. Climatic engineering. 

David Keith and Andy Parker at Harvard are making important advances in air conditioning. A promising option for removing CO2 from the atmosphere is bioenergy carbon capture and storage (BECCS).


14. "Brain Connectome" or the study of the relationship between brain connectivity and human behavior. 

We are now beginning to understand how neurons in the brain connect and work together to enable learning and memory. In 2013, the US government announced a new project called BRAIN that would fund $ 100 million for brain mapping research.


15. Technologies to combat the aging of the brain. 

In 2011, Dr. Gary Lynch of UC-Irvine studied the relationship between ampakines and the increase in electrical energy between neurons so we can think and remember when we were young.


16. "Clean Transportation Technologies" or technologies for environmentally friendly transportation. 

Tesla Elon Musk was a pioneer in the electric car field, creating a profitable North American auto company after years of no profitable companies in the US.


Elon's idea of ​​the Hyperloop could allow for clean and fast transportation that got us in under 30 minutes (or SF in 1 hour from SF to New York) at speeds of up to 4,000 miles per hour using magnetic levitation from San Francisco to Los Angeles would transport. Though it seems science fiction ...


17. Personalized medicine and gene sequencing (gene sequencing). 

With the human genome project completed and human DNA fully sequenced, companies like 23 & Me made advances in the field of personal genetic sequencing. Now, for just $ 99, you can have our DNA partially sequenced to better understand our origins and risk of disease.


18. Robotics. 

It is the technology that seeks to create automated machines that can replace humans in hazardous environments or manufacturing processes. They resemble people in appearance, behavior, and/or cognition. 

In the future we will see many robots: Professor Hiroshi Ishiguro has developed a twin robot called CD. Geminoid uses motion detection sensors to replicate absolutely all human movements. Bill Gates is already heralding a new economic revolution that will begin in 2016 due to the development and use of robots in everyday life.


19. Driverless cars. 

Both Tesla and Google are working on building an autonomous car. In Masdar, the United Arab Emirates, the "City of the Future", electronic automated transport vehicles (called podcars) are being used in subways as part of the carbon-free city initiative.


20. 3D printing. 

Five years ago, 3D printers were out of reach except for large companies. Today anyone can buy a Cubify 3D printer for $ 1,300 and print thousands of objects.


21. Private space travel. 

Companies like SpaceX and Virgin Galactic are working to make commercial space travel possible. In 2025 anyone can fly into space with $ 100,000. In 2050 anyone with $ 5,000 can make the trip.


22. Natural User Interfaces (NUI) 

Natural User Interface is the technology that enables interaction with a system without the use of command systems using only gestures. Natural user interfaces include touch, voice, hand movement, and thinking.


Siri (on the iPhone) enabled voice interaction back in 2010. LeapMotion works on the interaction with hand gestures. Finally, Emotiv tries to show that games can be controlled by the mind and facial expressions of the player through a headset.


23. Portable Computers & HUD. 

Portable devices are becoming more and more "normal". For example The Basis and Pebble clocks. The Jawbone Up bracelet (personal quantifier), the Nike FuelBand bracelet device, and the Google Glass, GlassUp, or Oakley's Airwaves.


24. Cybersecurity Technologies. 

In a world of cyberattacks fueled by governments (like the US Stuxnet attack on Iranian nuclear facilities in 2010) or other organizations, the world of cybersecurity is a gigantic market for decades to come. "Nanosatellites" weighing only 35 kilos are increasingly used.


25. Government 2.0. 

Let us imagine that all governments had a real-time control body with the opinion of the citizens and that there were also mechanisms that allow great transparency and a focus on the results. Or all the advances that could be made in digital public administration ... which will mean more Security or data protection ...?


Technology is accelerating and all entrepreneurs have to adjust to living in uncertainty, being as curious, flexible, and trend-setting as possible.


As Rodolfo carpintier says, "In life, the moment you stop learning, you start to die. With the internet, it's even faster ..."


The companies that will survive will be the most flexible and those that can put technology at the center of their operations to better serve a customer who is developing new technology and adopting it very quickly.
