Nine emerging technologies


Sep 11, 2022

On June 29, 2007, an innovative mobile phone ‘iPhone’ operated by a touch screen was unveiled. The iPhone, called the “computer in the hand,” was a collection of innovative technologies that could conveniently use information anytime, anywhere as well as communication between people.

The iPhone, which was introduced by Apple 34 years after the birth of the mobile phone (aka “brick phone”) in 1973, has been recorded as a “history of smartphones” that is indispensable to almost everyone today.

The iPhone has changed the world dramatically in 15 years. Then, what new technologies will change the world in the next 10 years?

CB Insights, a global data analysis and research organization, introduced nine technologies in the fields of artificial intelligence (AI), bio, and information security as potential technologies to change the world over the next 10 to 20 years, Yonhap News Agency reported.

The “nine technologies that will change the world in 10 years” pointed out by CB Insights are as follows.

Commercial quantum sensor

Quantum mechanical properties appearing in the atomic or electronic microscopic world can be applied to sensors to detect even minor environmental changes. This technology can be used in a variety of fields, from medical imaging to navigation and underground exploration. Not only is it smaller and lighter than the existing technology, but it is also thousands of times more accurate.

◇AI auditors

It is a technology that investigates AI models that handle data to detect risk factors that can harm AI’s accuracy and objectivity, such as cyberattacks and hidden biases.

◇ Brain-computer interfaces (BCI)

It is a technology that allows devices to be controlled, such as entering words only with thoughts or moving robot arms. Due to recent technological advances, electrodes that transmit signals from the brain can be attached without large-scale surgical operations, which is expected to accelerate commercialization.

Synthetic diamonds

It is a substance made by stacking carbon and hydrogen one layer by layer in a high-temperature reactor using chemical vapor deposition (CVD). This replaces silicon and gallium nitride used in radiation detectors and laser optical systems, and can be applied to various fields such as semiconductors and medical devices.
