Emerging technologies have the potential to radically change the experience of aging in the 21st century. Horizon scanning for emerging technologies is crucial to staying abreast of developments that can radically transform our world, enabling timely expert analysis in preparation for these disruptors. In visiting this virtual reality show, I noticed that virtual reality is mainly used in the entertainment and video game industry.
In its most fundamental form, a virtual market place brings together buyers and sellers through the internet. Ultimately, how we approach the regulation of emerging technologies will inevitably have wide implications – not only for security and ethics, but for our definition of human dignity and equality of individuals.
Business leaders are facing a new reality: Every company is a technology company now. In addition, the rise of the Internet of Things provides a very large amount of information that allows the development of Big Data. This database houses information about emerging technology products and projects, provides portfolio-level analysis and reporting, and facilitates collaboration.
There is a distinction between the purely digital services and the physical brands creating a virtual service but both types are trying to introduce more touchpoints and create a stronger relationship with the buyer. Steve Miranda EVP of Oracle Applications Product Development sits down with industry analyst Ray Wang to discuss adaptive intelligence, machine learning, blockchain, IoT, 5G, and more.
The technology giants are also working to integrate these services into the devices we use in our everyday routine. In this emerging industry, government regulation and oversight is developing and changing quickly as these new technologies become widely adopted.
