New technologies and innovations have been improving our lives at a rapid rate, and IBM has revealed its list of five big predictions for the innovations that its believes will change our lives in the next five years.
The predictions — nicknamed IBM 5 in 5 — were drawn from more than 3,000 researchers in 12 laboratories on six continents, according to VentureBeat.
Included in the IBM 5 in 5 are AI-based superhero vision, microscopes that reveal the earth’s complex nature, medical labs on a chip, smart sensors that can detect environmental pollution, and artificial intelligence that uses our words to offer a window into our mental health.
“With advances in artificial intelligence and nanotechnology, we aim to invent a new generation of scientific instruments that will make the complex invisible systems in our world today visible over the next five years,” Dario Gil, vice president of science and solutions at IBM research, said in a statement.
The list is based on market and societal trends, Venture Beat said, as well as new technologies from IBM’s research laboratories across the globe.
