Disruptive Technologies that Will Impact Us the Most in the Next Decade

As a technology futurist and innovation expert, I am often asked, \"What technologies do you think will have the greatest impact on humanity in the next decade?
\"In answering this question, it is important to note that many things will not change in the future, including the basic behavior of human beings and our desire to walk on the beach, vacation, playing games, seeing our kids smile and more.
But many things in our lives will change dramatically, far more than the smartphones, mobile apps, and the cloud we are experiencing today.
For example, we are in the early stages of the mobile, social, virtual and visual revolution, which will change the way we live, work and have fun.
This is an evolutionary revolution, because all the disruptive technologies that have already affected us have emerged ahead of time.
Thanks to what I call the three digital accelerators for processing power, digital storage, and digital bandwidth, disruptive technology has been evolving at an exponential rate for decades.
Due to the power of exponential change, they have entered a revolutionary stage.
Looking ahead, there are a lot of technologies that are part of the mobile, social, virtual and visual revolution and I\'m excited about that.
Machine 2 Machine (M2M)
Communications and the Internet of Things (IoT)
It will soon affect every area of our business and our lives.
Few people are aware of the full meaning of this, a way to dramatically improve efficiency and a way to create new products and services.
Another example is the next breakthrough in additive manufacturing (
3D manufacturing)
It has gone beyond rapid prototyping to create personalized finished products for humans from jet engine parts and bike frames to titanium jawbone.
When the 3D printer can use different types of materials when printing the finished product, this will reach a new level and is now close.
In the end, our main personal computer is already our smartphone, and it is becoming more and more intelligent.
We have access to supercomputers in the cloud through our smartphones, providing us with advanced multimedia capabilities and unlimited storage space supercomputers.
Knowing this, it is important to know that computers such as desktops, laptops, Ultrabooks and tablets will not disappear in the future.
How can I be so sure?
A good example is that the mainframe is not out of date;
Instead, the way we use them is different from 10, 20, 30 or even 40 years ago.
Most people with smartphones and tablets still use laptops;
They simply use it for different things and use it less.
If desktop and laptop manufacturers continue to innovate rather than compete with smartphones and tablets, they will create demand and have a future. (
Please note that I started the last sentence with the word \"if. \")
What technologies do you think will have the greatest impact on your industry or career in the future?
What are you doing to prepare before a technical outage occurs?
