8 Unexpected Ways Technology Will Change the World by 2020

8 Unexpected Ways Technology Will Change the World by 2020

Fast Company had an article some time ago about a new book called “shift2020” on how technology will change life by the end of this decade. Six years doesn’t seem to be that long, but a lot of things can and will happen due to the increased pace of tech innovation.

The book explores the future of everything from greentech and health care to 3D printing and transport, according to the article. It includes predictions from more than 70 futurists, thinkers-in-residence, entrepreneurs, think-tank analysts, and academics.

Fast Company picked out a few ideas that caught their interest:

  • New education models
  • Smarter cities
  • A creative boom
  • Health care
  • Reverse innovation
  • The end of online/offline
  • Financial inclusion
  • The dark side

You can read the full article here, and you’ll find the web site for the book here. I’ll write an update on this post at the end of 2020. 🙂
