Blockchain and Startup Ecosystems
By providing billions of fresh capital to technology startups, the technologies of bitcoin, blockchain, smart contracts, and ICOs have had a major impact on Silicon Valley. As this infrastructure spawns newer technologies and business models, you will see dramatic innovation and transformation and the transition to Internet 3.0.
Machine Learning and the New Innovation Paradigm
Machine learning and artificial intelligence change the fundamental paradigm of how computers execute instructions and how they interact with humans, which will reshape industries and create new tools for public institutions.
Augmented Humanity: The Future of Health and Performance
Technology is enabling new avenues for human enhancement, which will far surpass the performance-enhancing pharmaceuticals that athletes and militaries have been experimenting with for decades.
Responsible Experimentation with Blockchain
Permissioned systems provide opportunities for established businesses and public entities to begin experimenting with blockchain technology while maintaining control, so that important trade-off decisions can be made deliberately.
Augmenting Reality and Transforming Industries
AR is a hybrid visualization technology that combines the real world and the digital world. These technologies will transform the nature of skilled labor, as well as the retail and remote work experience.
Microprocessors and Line Spacing: The End of an Era
Moore’s law has been an important foundation of modern computing, but is likely to end due to “line spacing” constraints on circuits, absent a leap-ahead technology such as quantum or organic computing.
