5 Years Will Flip Tech to a New Level

In the next five years, expect stunning advances in computer processing, memory, networking, and human/brain interfaces.

Incremental technology advances will switch to Warp Drive over the coming five years, according to IEEE’s Computer Society.

Check out the panel discussion:The Reality of What's Possible with Collaborative Robots and What's Still in the Works in 2017 , which will be held during  Advanced Design & Manufacturing  , March 29-30, 2017, in Cleveland.  Register today!

By 2022, expect to see brain/computer interfaces, Exascale super-powered super computers, silicon photonics, and the adoption of nonvolatile memory devices. The future ain’t what it used to be – it’s faster and more powerful.

The IEEE Computer Society identified eight technologies to watch over the next half-decade. Design News takes a look at each of these technologies to see how these advances will deploy through 2022.

Rob Spiegel has covered automation and control for 17 years, 15 of them for Design News. Other topics he has covered include supply chain technology, alternative energy, and cyber security. For 10 years he was owner and publisher of the food magazine Chile Pepper.
