    I wish there was an innovation which contributed to saving energy rather than using it. All the innovations listed will benefit less than 1% of world population.Surely the funding and results from first few developments will benefit which donot need it any way. Once comercialised they will also find apps where they are not required!

    Making predictions for innovations that are five years in the future usually indicates that the research is not very far along and depends on a lot of breakthroughs. Since most of these predictions seem to involve some type of artificial intelligence, I wouldn’t put much stock in them, except for the application of gas analysis (not really "smell"), which is pretty straightforward.
    What I would like to see is what IBM (or anyone) predicted 5 years ago versus what we actually have today.
