Big Data and Analytics – Capabilities with data sets too large and complex to manipulate or interrogate with standard methods or tools. Related sub themes include the Internet of Things, machine learning, and artificial intelligence.
Networks and Computer Systems – Technology leaps ranging from hyper connectivity and integrated systems to service continuity and new software-defined arc
Robotics – The branch of technology that deals with the design, construction, operation, and application of robots. Advances in robotics, specifically when combined with other exponential technologies, have seemingly infinite potential applications, spanning technology, industrial, medical, and consumer-facing channels.
3-D Printing – A process for making a physical object from a three-dimensional digital model. This emerging trend is ready for mainstream consumption and has ample potential to disrupt several industries, from industrial manufacturing and medicine to consumer products and retail.
Financial Services Innovation – Search for and acknowledgement of non traditional funding sources, platforms, currency, and stored and transferred value.

Energy and Environmental Systems – This involves the exploration of renewable energy sources–including solar, wind, water, and batteries. As organizations set processes to help reduce environmental impacts and increase operating efficiency, new avenues for technological advancement across sectors will open up.
Medicine and Neurosciences – Sciences, such as neuro chemistry and experimental psychology, that deal with the nervous system and brain. Key advancements in unlocking the human genome have created an infrastructure of bio markers, while paradigm shifts in biotechnology that can alter the immune system are radically changing the way we treat diseases.
Bioinformatics – The science of collecting and analyzing complex biological data. The “quantified self” trend of acquiring data to quantify aspects of an individual’s daily life has exponential potential to positively impact both the duration and quality of life.
