Everything has an expiration date. We move ahead as a civilization leaving behind everything that doesn’t evolve, time and efficiency being the judge and jury of what gets left behind in our collective consciousness. New technologies, such as mobile applications, wireless sensor networks and online computer/video gaming, show great promise for advancing citizen science. This interesting topic came to us from Fast Company in their article, “The next-generation tech innovations and trends that will shape the coming decade.”

Even as most of the world talks about disruption in terms of mobility, blockchain, connectivity, technologists are focused on the emerging innovations that will shape what’s next.

Sustainability and related issues may have once been thought to be concerns important to younger generations, but over time it’s becoming increasingly clear these are universal concerns. Emerging technologies are being utilized to enable the development of new products and services that use less energy, chemicals and water, and reduce waste from operations.

Understanding how artificial intelligence (AI) systems make the decisions they do, and as a result, how the results are being applied in the various fields that AI and machine learning are being applied is still a challenge. Explainable AI allows users to comprehend and trust the results and output created by machine learning algorithms.
