Emerging Technologies of 2023
Simon Philip Rost, the Chief Marketing Officer of GE Healthcare, writes in his LinkedIn post about the top 10 emerging technologies of 2023. He writes:
Here are the top 10 technologies and their potential impacts on our lives:
1️⃣ Sustainable aviation fuel (SAF): Aiming to reduce aviation industry emissions, SAF made from biological or non-biological sources can be used with existing infrastructure, helping achieve net-zero emissions by 2050.
2️⃣ Wearable plant sensors: Micro-sized needle sensors embedded in plants provide data on temperature, humidity, moisture, and nutrient levels, optimizing crop yields, reducing resource use, and detecting diseases early.
3️⃣ Sustainable computing: Innovative technologies like liquid cooling, repurposing excess heat, and AI-enabled energy optimization aim to achieve net-zero-energy data centers, reducing environmental impact.
4️⃣ Generative AI: Complex algorithms recognize patterns to create original content, impacting various fields from education and architecture to drug design and space engineering.
5️⃣ AI in healthcare: AI-based technologies and machine learning tools improve healthcare systems, enhance pandemic preparedness, reduce waiting times, and increase access to healthcare services, particularly in developing countries.
6️⃣ Metaverse for mental health: Virtual environments enable mental health treatments, offering telemedicine applications for prevention, therapy, education, and research, fostering well-being and mindfulness.
7️⃣ Designer phages: Bioengineered viruses (phages) can transmit genetic instructions to target and treat microbiome-associated diseases in humans, animals, and plants, enhancing well-being and agricultural productivity.
8️⃣ Spatial omics: Combining advanced imaging and DNA sequencing, spatial omics allows scientists to observe intricate details of cell architecture and biological processes, improving understanding of human biology.
9️⃣ Flexible batteries: Lightweight, pliable batteries power flexible electronic devices like roll-up screens, smart clothing, healthcare devices, and wearables, enabling new markets and applications.
🔟 Flexible neural electronics: Advancements in flexible electronics and biocompatible materials enhance brain-machine interfaces (BMI), enabling less invasive experiences for patients with epilepsy and prosthetic limbs.
