Everything has an expiration date. We move ahead as a civilization while leaving behind everything that doesn’t evolve, with efficiency sifting out what remains. New technologies, including 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, and connectivity, technologists are focused on the emerging innovations that will shape what’s next.

Sustainability and related issues may once have been thought to be important mostly to younger generations, but over time, it’s become increasingly clear these are universal concerns. Emerging technologies are aiding the development of new products and services squandering less energy, chemicals, and water and reducing waste from operations.

Understanding how artificial intelligence (AI) systems make decisions and how both machine learning and AI results can be used is still a challenge. Explainable AI allows users to comprehend and trust the results and output created by machine learning algorithms.
