Each year, IBM Research chooses five digital innovations that will likely transform elements of modern life within five years. It’s an exercise designed to challenge IBM scientists and engineers and engage the general public in imagining the possible.
This year’s predictions will be announced on Monday, Dec. 17 on this blog. We’ll post links to videos and in-depth blog posts about each of the innovations by IBM brainiacs. Also, we’ll invite visitors to vote for their favorite prediction. The results will be announced Dec. 21.
