These are the top 10 emerging technologies of 2017

A diverse range of breakthrough technologies, including “Artificial leaves” that turn CO2 into fuel, and a technique that harvests water from air, could soon be playing a role in tackling the world’s most pressing challenges, according to a list published today by the World Economic Forum. The technologies were selected by the World Economic Forum’s Expert Network and Global Future Councils in collaboration with Scientific American and its Board of Advisors. The experts were also looking for indications that the technologies have reached a level of maturity that would enable widespread take-up in the coming 3-5 years. “New technologies are redefining industries, blurring traditional boundaries and creating new opportunities on a scale never seen before. Public and private institutions must develop the correct policies, protocols and collaborations to allow such innovation to build a better future, while avoiding the risks that unchecked technological change could pose,” said Murat Sönmez, Head of the Center for the Fourth Industrial Revolution and Member of the Managing Board of the World Economic Forum. The ability to extract clean water from air is not new, however existing techniques require high moisture levels and a lot of electricity. A team from MIT and University of California, Berkeley has successfully tested a process using porous crystals that convert the water using no energy at all. Another approach, by a start-up called Zero Mass Water from Arizona is able to produce 2-5 litres of water a day based on an off-grid solar system. Thanks to deep learning, an emerging field of artificial intelligence, computer-vision technologies are increasingly being used in applications as diverse as driving autonomous vehicles, medical diagnostics, damage assessment for insurance claims and monitoring of water levels and crop yield. The answer lies in using sunlight-activated catalysts to split water molecules into water and hydrogen, and then using the same hydrogen to convert CO2 into hydrocarbons. The project, backed by the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative aims to identify every cell type in every tissue; learn exactly which genes, proteins and other molecules are active in each type and the processes which control that activity; determine where the cells are located exactly; how the cells normally interact with one another, and what happens to the body’s functioning when genetic or other aspects of a cell undergo change, among other things. The Fourth Industrial Revolution is providing farmers with a new set of tools to boost crop yield and quality while reducing water and chemical use. Progress is being made on a promising zero-emission technology, the hydrogen-fed fuel cell. Applying green construction to multiple buildings at once has the potential to revolutionize the amount of energy and water we consume. The same project’s plan to re-design water systems so that waste water from toilets and drains is treated and re-used on site, with rainwater diverted to toilets and washers, could cut demand for potable water by 70%. Quantum computers’ almost limitless potential has only ever been matched by the difficulty and cost of their construction.

Every student deserves access to a high-quality public education, regardless of race, neighborhood or income. That’s why TAF has worked to improve access to STEM and technology fields for students of color and underrepresented communities for the past twenty years. Our work has spanned from running after-school programs, opening our own school, partnering with school districts and training education professionals to utilize our STEMbyTAF academic model. Through our efforts, we know that all students are capable of success – with the right support and resources. There is a huge deficit of qualified candidates to fill Washington State’s STEM and tech jobs. Of the professionals that are in the industry, only a slim margin are of color. At TAF, we’re educating an untapped pipeline of future STEM and technology leaders. Our students are working to solve real-world problems now. We know that they are capable of leading the world, and we’re committed to making it happen.

10 Ways Technology Will Change The World By 2025

As technology changes the way we live our day-to-day lives, it is fascinating to imagine what the future will bring. We may like to imagine one day living on Mars with technology that lets us teleport our toothpaste from CVS and the ability to apparate like Harry Potter. Airplanes will adopt the technology too, which will totally change the way we travel. New technology will be able to store energy and serve as electrodes to deliver this hyper-connectivity. DNA mapping will be the norm thanks to advancements in single-cell analysis, nanotechnology, and Big Data technology.
