Before you say it, I know this is a bit of a ‘retweet’ - but I couldn’t help sharing, sorry guys!
Digital. It’s everywhere. Digital, technology, technology, digital – it’s all we hear in our conference rooms, in the news and on our streets (let alone in café’s in Shoreditch).But when we talk about technology and the future, exactly what are we talking about?
The bad news is that there are way too many technologies and potential technologies out there to fully answer the question.
The good news is that help is on hand: a designer from trendwatching.com, Michell Zappa, has somehow managed to map out potential future technologies in a digestible form (and this isn’t just conjecture, this is based on research).What’s exciting about the map is that shows once and for all the future ubiquity of “digital”, from telemedicine in Biotech to recommendation engines in Artificial Intelligence.
Perhaps most importantly, it reminds us that technology will take us way beyond the traditional digital —UX, touch, mobile… It is a whole brave new world out there, and I’m excited about the positive impact we could make in those spaces.
