IBM at the end of each year, examines the societal trends expected to transform our lives, as well as emerging technologies from IBM’s global labs, to develop a 5 year forecast called The Next 5 in 5.
IBM predicts that over the next five years technology innovations will change the way we work, live and play in the following ways:
People power will come to life
If it moves, then it can create energy. We will make our own energy instead of relying on monopolizing power companies.
