After investigating over a hundred technologies, editor Jason Roberts from Global News Online expressed his opinion on emerging technologies that might reshape the world.
Here is the list of the top five emerging technologies that might reshape the world.
- Quantum computing:
Quantum computing is computing using quantum-mechanical phenomena, such as superposition and entanglement. A quantum computer is a device that performs quantum computing.
- sustainable communities:
Sustainable communities tend to focus on environmental and economic sustainability, urban infrastructure, social equity, and municipal government.
- genomic vaccines:
Genomic vaccination appears to offer promise as a prevention of diseases caused by viruses or bacteria, suggest animal studies carried out at the University of Texas. “Genetic immunization is going to be a revolution in vaccines and now we’ve taken it to another level – genomic vaccination.
- green vehicles:
A green vehicle, or clean vehicle, or eco-friendly vehicle or environmentally-friendly vehicle is a road motor vehicle that produces less harmful impacts to the environment than comparable conventional internal combustion engine vehicles running on gasoline or diesel, or one that uses certain alternative fuels.
- blockchain-based social networking:
A blockchain,originally block chain,is a continuously growing list of records, called blocks, which are linked and secured using cryptography.Each block typically contains a hash pointer as a link to a previous block,a timestamp and transaction data.By design, blockchains are inherently resistant to modification of the data. It is “an open, distributed ledger that can record transactions between two parties efficiently and in a verifiable and permanent way”
