The year 2020, even if only a few years away, still sounds futuristic and in tech terms, it is. With the exponential developments in technology, the world will look very different in 2020 with many exciting new innovations taking shape. The health sector will see incredible advancements such as printable organs, predictive healthcare and more. The lines between online and offline will start disappearing and virtual reality will feature prominently. 2020 is going to be an interesting year according to Futurist Richard van Hooijdonk. Here’s a list of predictions.
Oral health is more important than many people realize and goes beyond having a set of clean, shiny teeth. Social anxieties connected with halitosis, colloquially known as bad breath, are not uncommon. Moreover, the condition of one’s mouth, teeth and gums can be an indicator of overall health. Poor oral hygiene is a risk factor for many other health problems. Oral health has been linked to several health conditions including heart disease, diabetes, osteoporosis and eating disorders.
Disruption and innovation are more than just buzzwords in the tech world; they are the fuel that will power the engine of the modern economy.
In only a few years, the digital tsunami has laid waste to traditional businesses such as bookstores, entertainment retail companies, electronic stores, fashion retail, and any other sectors that were too slow to catch up.

It may slip our notice, but technological innovation is often reducible to an innovation in the marketing and conceptualization of technology.

It promises to simplify the process of ordering pizza or buying cinema tickets, allowing its users to perform such actions via a single voice-operated interface.

A fuel cell for space. Batteries that use air. A way to tap pine trees and extract biofuels like maple syrup from a maple tree. These are just some of the “out-there” energy innovations that researchers and entrepreneurs are hard at work building in labs across the U.S., and which were on display at the fifth annual energy innovation-focused ARPA-E Summit this week.
Innovation is increasingly popular in international development. The last ten years have seen new initiatives, funds, and pilots aplenty. While some of this involves genuinely novel and experimental approaches, we have also seen — perhaps inevitably — some re-branding, spin and posturing. This has led to a degree of justifiable backlash and cynicism — even the Financial Times weighed in, describing international development as having caught ‘an innovation fever’.
While the EU talks a good talk about innovation, most regulation seems to stifle the innovative spirit with a precautionary penance. Does Europe understand what innovation is? Do we share an entrepreneurial spirit across Europe or are we hidebound by contrapreneurs? Do we need to have an “Innovation Principle” to prevent precaution from choking our capacity to grow and prosper? This blog might make some interesting conclusions.
I was at a research lab to talk about commercialization. The presenter put up a slide of some exciting new technologies. The slide’s tagline said these technologies would “disrupt the biomedical industry.” My first thought was that disrupting the biomedical industry–“to interrupt by causing a disturbance” or “to drastically alter or destroy the structure of something”–is probably the exact wrong thing to do to an industry that keeps us alive and healthy.
De meeste bedrijven negeren de vier basisbehoeften van innovatie: zij wil beweging, van insiders komen, een ecosysteem en actie. Wie daar geen rekening mee houdt, zal nooit overleven in de competitieve marktomgeving.
In Greek mythology, Scylla is a six-headed sea monster that eats sailors who sail too close. Charybdis is a whirlpool capable of swallowing your ship whole. The only problem is, you have to sail right between Scylla and Charybdis to discover what’s beyond.
