IBM Five in Five List

Image Credit: DOE, Roadrunner Super Computer, world's first petaflop computer

On Dec 29th IBM will publish a list that will outline innovations that could make fundamental changes over the next half a decade as to how we work.  The list is based on research and development in IBM’s laboratories as well as projecting market and societal trends.

  • You’ll be able to talk to friends via a holographic image
  • Computer sensors in everyday devices will collect environmental information for use better understanding our environment at a micro scale.
  • Computers will help energize cities, with heat generated in data centers channeled to warm up other places. (not really new heat from super computers has been channeled to help heat facilities since the 70s.)
  • Batteries will breathe air to power devices, storing energy and lasting much longer, as well as powering everything from the electric grid to consumer devices.
  • Some devices may no longer need batteries, instead using static or kinetic electricity directly.

As technology invades every aspect of our lives and we become more dependant on it.  The technological advances that were suppose to make our lives less stressful have made them more stressful.  Whole industry niches have been created to reduce the stress that the technology thrust upon us such as Identity Protection has grown from electronic financial transactions that are not secure.

I’m a technologist at heart and love using gizmos and gadgets, but I also see a Hurt and Rescue causality.  I supply you with a way of storing all you photographs on a disk then I need to create a way to save them when the disk fails.

I’ll be interested to see the details behind IBMs predictions.
