Title: The Ultimate Guide To Emerging Technologies
"Gene therapy? Anti-aging drugs? Neuroinformatics? If this sounds like something out of some Minority Report, you’re in for a surprise. According to a simply amazing visualization by the geniuses at Envisioning Tech, all this and more is coming to your world in the next few decades.
And it all starts with education. If we want each of these incredible (some scary, some not) technologies to actually happen, we need to make sure every student and teacher sees this visualization. Seriously. Show this roadmap to a student contemplating a degree in science or math and they’ll be pretty inspired. Who wouldn’t want to be the person who discovered a way to build a SPACE ELEVATOR?! That’s right. That’s one of the emerging technologies."
NOTE: This is an infographic that projects the emergence of particular technologies up to 2040. Some will be applied in learning situations, others to the workplace, and others are scientific advances. The diagram is a PDF which is easier to read when enlarged.
