Advancement in technology has made the world go “gaga”. Many ideas are in play here, including regular flow and solid batteries, but the most exciting emerging technology is even newer graphene supercapacitors These supercapacitors can store large amounts of energy and disperse it quickly, far outpacing our regular electric batteries, and graphene makes an environmentally friendly and relatively cost efficient material for that.
With so much change taking place and so many options to consider, you need a technology and business partner that can guide and help you in your search for innovative, new and exciting technologies that deliver real value and outcomes and solutions that help you achieve your strategic imperatives and business goals.
This white paper is part of a knowledge partnership between the World Economic Forum and McKinsey to examine the impact of four emerging technologies on the creative economy Jonathan Dunn, a partner in the firm’s Consumer Technology & Media Practice, serves as an industry adviser to the World Economic Forum.
Tracking more than 150 different technologies and using our own Emerging Tech Focus tool and method we identified those that are likely to make the biggest impact over the next five years or so. As part of that process, we took into account criteria including: the speed of tech take-up; the scale of public and private investment; the potential for the technology to go mainstream; its global reach; its technical viability; and its industry relevance across more than one sector.
Peter Schwartz, Senior Vice-President, Global Government Relations and Strategic Planning at , is comparably of the opinion that artificial intelligence and other emergent technologies hold great potential as drivers of future economic growth , as not only will they increase productivity â€¦ but also launch a new generation of products and servicesâ€.
