Disruptive technologies, of 2025

Computerworld ran a fascinating story about the top distruptive technologies we’ll see in 2025, as predicted by U.S. intelligence agencies.

Among the technologies with potential to cause a noticeable “degradation or enhancement in one of the elements of U.S. national power” are:

“1. Biogerontechnology, involves technologies that improve lifespan. Think of Dorian Gray. If people are living longer and healthier lives, it will challenge nations to develop new economic and social policies for an older and healthier population.

2. Energy storage systems, such as fuel cells and ultracapacitors, would replace fossil fuels.”

There was no mention whether any of the technologies would help locate Osama bin Laden by then.
