IBM Predicts the Next Five Innovations to Watch in the Next Five Years

IBM has just released its third annual ??ext Five in Five?list of innovations to watch. These are based on research done in Big Blue’s own labs, as well as market trends the company has observed. They’re interesting to pay attention to because they just might reveal what IBM is working on and might commercialize in the future.

Here are IBM’s predictions for what to expect by the end of 2013. First, in video format, and second, in text (the notes in parentheses are mine).

IBM's Next Five in Five:

-Energy saving solar technology will be built into asphalt, paint and windows

-You will have a crystal ball for your health (via genetic maps)

-You will talk to the Web . . . and the Web will talk back (via voice recognition)

-You will have your own digital shopping assistants (via mobile devices)

-Forgetting will become a distant memory (via smart appliances in every area of the home and office)
