Disruption is the most recent rhythm of the technology debate. The uberization of everything if often mentioned, so is the disruptive potential of abundance. However disruption is also about finding the right product-market fit.
“technological change is increasingly driven by the combination and recombination of foundational elements.”
So to imagine the future, it is not just about advances in technology, like in computing power or miniaturization, but also at the intersection of these technologies. The intersection might be the disruption; completely new oppurtunities and new markets all together.
The report presents a technology horizon map that is designed to help anticipate the future of combinatorial innovations emerging at the intersection of distinct territories. The map presents 20 new innovative combinatorial forecasts you can use to navigate the future as it unfolds. The the bigger picture: a more interconnected technology landscape.
So click around on the map in 13 “territories”–what it calls “frontiers of innovation”–and then examine the overlaps. Here are a two to get started. [Read more...]
